Austin State University, Lincoln Center in New York City, the Great Wall of China and beyond, the music of George Faber has captivated audiences all over the world. Faber is well known and highly respected for his skills as a keyboardist, bass player, producer, arranger and innovative arts educator. As a smooth jazz artist with a strong Top-40 background, the breadth of Faber's experience and abilities encompasses multiple genres, including Gospel, Country, Classical, Pop, Funk, Classic Rock and Roll, Big Band and Rhythm and Blues. During the early 80's, he toured with the group Sunshine Express and also worked for Disney.
Performing along with Faber will be Gary Freeman.
