Snug Harbor presents
Tribute to Dr. Lonnie Smith with Davell Crawford & Kyle Roussel
Friday February 23rd, 2024 7:30pm (Doors: 7:00pm)


During the 1960’s, Dr. Lonnie Smith contributed to a golden era of Jazz in New York City as a prominent Hammond B3 organ alchemist. A true virtuoso of his craft, he traversed genres and was revered as a mentor by many artists including George Benson, Lou Donaldson, Don Was, and Rudy Van Gelder. His music has   sampled in rap, dance and house grooves while being credited as a forefather of acid jazz.  He played regularly at Snug beginning in the 1990s, and as fate would have it, one of his last performances before his passing in 2021 was at Snug Harbor.

Tonight, the renowned “Prince of New Orleans”, Davell Crawford and  “NOLA à la Mode” recording artist and pianist, Kyle Rousell pay tribute to Smith’s life & music, featuring:

Davell Crawford - B3 organ
Kyle Roussel - B3 and piano
Joe Dyson - drums
Khris Royal - saxophone 
Detroit Brooks -guitar 

Shows at 7:30 & 9:30pm 
Doors at 7:00pm & 9:00pm
