El Shafer:  

Eleazar “Shafe” Shafer is a fresh, fiery, charismatic musician hailing from Willingboro, NJ. Music captured his soul at the age of 6; studying classical & jazz piano under the tutilege of Linda Genteel (Liberace), Shirley Scott (Stanley Turrentine, Freddie Hubbard), & Radam Schwartz (Barry Harris, Gigi Grice). It was his studies with Radam that further advanced his mind, influencing him to pick up a second instrument, the trumpet.

Eleazar has been performing internationally for the past 20 years, touring with Roy Ayers, Fantasia, Mike Phillips (Prince, Stevie Wonder), Eric Roberson, Teddy Riley, & Charlotte’s only African-American Playwright, “Miles & Coltrane: The Blue Period”, written & directed by Quentin Talley, musical directed by Stephen Gordon (Ellis Marsalis, The Headhunters).  Shafe has also written and recorded with Fred Wesley (James Brown), Bubonik Funk, Harvey Cummings (9th Wonder, Carlitta Durand), & Nate Lucas. Shafe is currently fronting his own project called “Machine Gun Preacher”, whose EP debuts in Winter 2019.

Miles Davis:

Miles Dewey Davis III was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. He is among the most influential and acclaimed figures in the history of jazz and 20th century music. Born: May 26, 1926, Alton, IL. Died: September 28, 1991, Santa Monica, CA
