As an artist, Hart incorporates an eclectic blend of musical genres into a unique hip, melodic and syncopated style. He then weaves in a few of his original compositions, creating a fresh, exciting experience for the audience.

Hart is a vocalist, saxophonist, pianist, flautist, bassist, composer, engineer, producer, arranger and sequencing specialist with a recording studio he built at his home in the Santa Ynez Valley. He has appeared on TV and in clubs in Los Angeles and Orange County and on a cross-country tour.

In Las Vegas he produced and arranged music while performing as a saxophonist and lead vocalist for groups.

Joining Hart are some of Santa Barbara's finest local musicians: Jeff Elliott on trumpet, Maitland Ward on guitar, Randy Tico on bass, John Enrico Douglas on piano, and Darrell Voss on drums.

Admission to the event is $15 for Jazz Society members, $25 for non-members, and $5 for local jazz musicians and full-time students with membership (check or cash only).

Tickets are available only at the door; doors open at 12:30 p.m. There are no reservations and members will be admitted first so plan to arrive early.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
