JJ Sansaverino has not only made a name for himself as the lead guitarist for the reggae band Maxi Priest but he's also made a name for himself as a solo artist. His most recent appearances at the Hartford Jazz Festival, the Branford Jazz Series, and the Rehobeth Jazz Festival have solidified this dynamic guitarist's reputation as an outstanding writer, performer, and band leader. JJ Sansaverino returns to HOME Restaurant on Friday, December 11 for his annual holiday tour that seeks to collect food and donations for our local food bank. Returning with JJ are his bandmates Etienne Lytle on keys and world renowned saxman Ze Luis Oliveira. Joining JJ for their first trip to Branford are singer Vince Robinson who has performed with Stephanie Mills, bassist Roberto Vally who tours regularly with singer Bobby Caldwell and wrote the hit "Lip Service" for Richard Elliot, and drummer Camille Gainer-Jones, one of NYC's finest drummers.
