Brian Auger's Oblivion Express

Brian Auger's Oblivion Express

The legendary Brian Auger's Oblivion Express has returned. The famed B3 and keyboard player, has created a distinct voice that combines jazz, rock, soul and funk, that is clearly recognizable to his millions of fans. With over 20 albums to his name and lengthy stints on the RCA and Warner Bros. labels, Brian Auger has accumulated Grammy Nominations, 10 albums charting in Billboards Hot 100, a #1 single, and the title of "The Godfather of Acid Jazz". Brian's bands over the years have featured Rod Stewart, Long John Baldry, Julie Driscoll and even Jimi Hendrix. In addition, Brian has recorded with great luminaries as The Yardbirds, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Eric Burdon and Down To The Bone. The new incarnation of the Oblivion Express is a family affair featuring Karma Auger on drums and Savannah Auger on vocals, who live up to the Auger name and make the Oblivion Express smoke. Rave reviews and demands for return engagements follow this artist wherever he goes.

Xavier Breaker Coalition

Born and raised in South Carolina, drummer, composer, and arranger, Xavier Breaker, has been playing the drums since the age of five, playing for various groups and venues. But when he moved to Illinois to study Jazz at Northern Illinois University in 2009, he then discovered that writing music would be another avenue of expression for him. Shortly after graduating in 2011, Xavier began writing numerous tunes in hopes of one day to play them in front of people. That hope would be realized in January of 2013 when the Xavier Breaker Coalition came into fruition.

The Xavier Breaker Coalition can be described as a versatile group, which each of its members with different musical backgrounds ranging from gospel to R&B, rock, jazz, hip hop, classical and other different genres, coming together to form a unique sound. They can be described as being smooth and sensitive, as well as aggressive and powerful at the same time. They are not named the Coalition for no reason, for they are on a mission to uplift, inspire, heal, and take people on a journey to places where they have never been through the gift of music.
