"Syracuse upcoming"

“SAMMY Award-winning keyboardist Shawn Seals, a Syracuse native, was born into church music, but eventually found his way to jazz. Today, when he isn't musical director of his church, Seals leads his "Musical Experiment," a band which elevates what has already been elevated; it's jazz fusion, with heavy emphasis on the fusion -- combining elements of neo-soul, R&B, funk and gospel to create a sound that's best experienced live.” - Dan Poorman


“Shawn Seals conducts an experiment that works. His combination of jazz and fusion dips its toes into many genre pools, giving him a unique jazz based sound that is refreshing as it is energy filled. Lots of good vibes eminate from this music!” -
