Today’s performance: Lil Maceo (Jazz, Funk, Pop)

About the Band:

Mr. Funky Sax. This name aptly describes the musical old school funky, foot-stomping music of Lil Maceo. His powerful music has made him one of the most sought after saxophonists in the industry. This isn’t dime store music created on a drum machine and a computer.

This is bona fide unadulterated funk and R&B cleverly crafted by a master musician with hardcore roots in funk, pop, dance, and smooth jazz. His shows are high energy ultimately compelling audiences to get out of their seats and party.

Lil Maceo has shared the stage with a host of music giants including Cyndi Lauper, JT Taylor, Cyril Neville, and Gavin DeGraw. He has been mesmerizing audiences nationally since 2001. His music received huge acclaim from critics and audiences alike.

“This devoted father of two and rising giant recently moved to the Washington, DC metropolitan area from New York City.
