Forte Jazz Lounge is Charleston’s only strictly jazz venue. Jazz is always on-tap with the best musicians performing every week.
Kevin Patton is a composer, instructor, and saxophonist from Charleston, South Carolina. Over the past decade, he has performed in various venues such as churches, concert halls, and restaurants. He graduated from College of Charleston in 2014 with a degree in Music Performance. Kevin currently teaches music, including saxophone lessons, at Allegro Charter School of Music. He teaches private lessons at Charleston Jazz Academy as well.
In addition to performing and teaching, Kevin also released an album in the fall of 2015. This album, entitled “Full Authority”, dives into his two main musical influences: Gospel and Jazz.
