12-10-2018 12:00:00 12-10-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Lee Hogans & Pursuance | 7:30 PM By maintaining an aggressive path of musical study and professional achievement, W. Lee Hogans has fashioned a distinct musical style. He formed his own band Pursuance in 2004. His songs, featuring strong grooves with catchy melodies, encompass the worlds of Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Soul. Stylistic influences range from Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard to James Brown and Run DMC. Lee recently signed to the Japanese record label P-Vine and released his second album with Pursuance entitled What We Play is Life. WWPIL hit the market in 2015, reaching 2nd place on the Japanese iTunes charts just behind Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. Lee Hogans and Pursuance has also dazzled audiences at many destination venues throughout New York and New Jersey, including the famous Blue Note jazz club, where the band is in residency backing up Hip Hop legends like Prodigy, Masta Ace, and Grand Puba. Lee's performance career gained notoriety by working with giants in the entertainment industry. He is currently the trumpeter for comedian Dave Chapelle as a member of the group Fred Yonnet and The Band With No Name. Their performances include Radio City Music Hall and the SNL After Party. Lee recently toured with Grammy-winning bassist Marcus Miller on his Renaissance Tour in the US, Europe and Africa. He's also toured with Funk legend Maceo Parker – where school is always in session! In 2009 he was the trumpeter for Jay-Z's Blueprint III tour, which included playing at President Barak Obama's Inaugural Ball. He was a member of legendary pop icon Prince and The NPG from 2007-2009. Other tours include Jill Scott, Sean "Diddy" Combs and The Jonas Brothers. TV performances include Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, The Today Show, Ellen DeGeneres, Kelly and Michael, and HBO's Boardwalk Empire. Lee has made influential moves in his career as a trumpeter-in-demand and producer, diligently making a name for himself in New York City and the tri-state area. When not touring with prominent musicians and performance acts, Lee is in the studio recording, producing and mixing songs with such artists as SoNuVo, Felix Peikli, Mark Ronson, Jadakiss, Fantasia, Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes, Sheila E, and Prince. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=326167 Groove Groove
