Justin’s got style that will Dazzle
1. What neighborhood do you live in?
I live in the Golden Triangle area.
2. What brought you to Dazzle this evening?
I have been performing at Dazzle Jazz for 6-7 years now. It’s really where I got my start; at that time, I was playing 1 show a week. Dazzle really offered me an opportunity to develop my sound into the soul it is now. Now I perform here much more often and play at Herbs and Appaloosa Grill, too. I play jazz on Saturdays, and in the near future, I will be playing a Charlie Chaplin type of interpretive music at Dazzle on Sundays, like what was used in the old talkies but with a modern spin.
3. What are some of your favorite local spots?
Dazzle Jazz of course. Appaloosa Grill, El Chapultepec and Herbs.
P.S. We love your vibe! What inspires your style?
I grew up on rock, blues and soul. I listened to Donny Hathaway, Hammerstein and Louis Armstrong and studied jazz at CU. I love New Orleans style jazz.
