Presenting Champion Sound Band at the Millennium Stage

Hometown Sounds continues our dedication to the music of DC in all its many forms with a February #DCmusic showcase at the Kennedy Center’s free Millennium Stage featuring Champion Sound Band. Champion Sound Band blends their love for jazz, blues, funk, soul and hip-hop to create something all their own. With passions for tried and true musicianship and exploration, their ever-evolving soundscapes feel both warmly familiar yet one of a kind.

Champion Sound Band draws from their individual backgrounds to form a special harmony. With shared passions for tried and true musicianship and exploration, their ever-evolving soundscapes feel both warmly familiar yet one of a kind.

The Washington Post most recently described the group as “a sensitive soul-jazz sextet”. Going on, The Post’s Chris Richards affirms in his review– “after a couple of years songwriting in this current lineup, a tender touch comes reflexively, with everybody working delicately around (Anastasia) Antoinette’s blue-flame voice until their supporting gestures coagulate into a song.”

Champion Sound Band blends their love for jazz, blues, funk, soul and hip-hop to create something all their own. A community of like-minded musicians who feel kindred. The love and care they have for each other translates to their art, and the music is at once positive and empowering. With a sense that we are all champions, the aim is clear– to uplift and inspire. Altogether, the vibration is tranquil and transformative. This dichotomy delivers an impressive result. It’s music you won’t soon forget. A feeling of enchantment. Something worth sharing. And Champion Sound Band invites all to join their family.

The band includes Anastasia Antoinette on vocals, Gudo on drums and production, Kareem ‘Reemz’ Johnson on keys and production, John Eamon on sax, Jimmy Keith on bass and Alex James on guitar.

RSVP here and come to the free performance at 6 PM on Thursday February 28th!
