The Brian Mcknight4 is the culmination of 25 years of writing, playing, producing, and performing, that truly defines my career in this business. From my solo story telling shows, my trio shows, and my full production shows, I've taken the best of all of them and created an in your face, musical exhibition of my work to date with myself on keys, Tariqh Akoni on guitar, Chris Loftlin on bass, and Gregory Daniel on drums/percussions. We'll take you from the very beginning to now and everything in between for a night of music you won't soon forget!!
