For over a decade guitar virtuoso Nils has been one of the most successful forces in the contemporary jazz genre. He has been mesmerizing audiences with his sound, producing hit after hit, with six #1 Billboard hits including “Pacific Coast Highway,” the most played song on smooth jazz radio since 2000. “His CD ‘Jazz Gems – The Best of Nils’” has been hailed as “The Best of Contemporary Jazz” for its masterfully composed and produced hits. As songwriter and producer, he used his “Midas touch” to provide hits for many artists in this genre, including Lisa Addeo, George Benson, Brian Simpson, Reza Khan, Alvin Pope, Tony Saunders to name a few.

Johnny Britt is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer, trumpeter, arranger, and composer. Founder of the Motown MoJazz group Impromp2, Britt is now a soloist and has released his 4th solo album titled “Mo Jazzin'”. Britt has penned three number one Billboard hits with Boney James -- “Contact,” “The Total Experience” and “Grand Central” featuring George Duke. Now Boney has returned the favor to Britt with his single “You Sure Love To Ball'' featuring Boney James.

The youngest ever musical director for the super group The Temptations, Britt was discovered by the legendary founder of The Temptations, Otis Williams. This led Britt to become the co-music producer along with Dan Carlin for the Emmy award-winning “Temptations” miniseries movie. Britt was also featured as a solo trumpet player in the Oscar-nominated movie “La La Land”. Britt worked with renowned composer Hans Zimmer as the featured trumpet soloist in the Oscar Nominated Motion Picture “Hidden Figures” and “Dunkirk”.
