Gospel Soul Series: E-Flat

Hosted by Debra James Tucker

  • This event has passed.

E-Flat was formed in 2013 by founder and bandleader David Dennis. E-Flat features some of the best musicians in Central Ohio. The members consist of David Dennis (Saxophone), Aaron Thomas (Bass Guitar), Charles Small (Keyboard) and Robert Riley (Drums). E-Flat recently backed recording artist Jermaine Dolly in concert and performed at Braxton Miller’s Launch party for his Foundation Launch. The band was featured in the Stage Play “Why Didn’t I See Her”, written, directed and produced by Tara Walker. During the play E-Flat had the privilege of backing Singer/Actor Anthony Grant of Tyler Perry’s “Love Thy Neighbor” and Marc Nelson of the R&B group AZYET and co-founder of Boyz II Men. E-Flat also had the distinct pleasure of providing music for Mayor Andrew Ginther’s 2020 State of the City Reception. The band plays a mix of originals, smooth jazz, gospel, r&b and neo soul. E-Flat has performed at a number of venues and events, including the Historic Lincoln Theater, National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials event, Newark Jazz & Rib Fest, African American Heritage Festival, Trailblazer’s Scholarship Luncheon, Jack & Jill Foundation of America, United Way of Central Ohio, National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc. and the State of Ohio Combined Charitable Campaign. E-Flat can be found throughout Ohio performing at Jazz Venues, Art Shows, Wedding Ceremonies, Receptions, Parties and Intimate Gatherings.

The unique sound of vocalist Debra James Tucker is a product of extensive training in jazz, classical and gospel music. She is the writer/performer of the one woman show Survival of the Boulevard Singer—winner of an Ohio Arts Council Award for Individual Excellence, has been a visiting instructor at Denison University in the history of African American Gospel Music, and an artist in residence with several youth arts organizations.
