Three million chart-topping records sold. Four GRAMMY nominations. One of Billboard’s Top 3 Contemporary Jazz Artists of the Decade. Boney James is as smooth as it gets. The multi-platinum selling instrumentalist brings his genre-bending style to the Ferguson Center for an unforgettable night of jazz and R&B.
In addition to his GRAMMY nominations, James is a Soul Train Award winner and has been honored with two NAACP Image Award nominations for Best Jazz Album. He has accumulated four RIAA Certified Gold Records.
In a career now spanning twenty-six years, eleven of James’ albums have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart and two have reached the top 10 on the R&B Albums Chart, a rare feat for an instrumental artist.
Boney is also renowned for his compelling live performances. According to The Boston Globe: “…James swaggers across the stage like a blacktop hero draining trays on an overmatched opponent. He even weaves his way through the crowd, all but daring them not to have a good time.”
