Houston saxophonist, Shaakir, opened the show, followed by Fort Worth, Texas natives, Faces, who tore on the stage with soaring synchronized sounds. Dewayne Washington and Ahmad Johnson, saxophonist along with trumpeter Marcus Rockwell are a brutal combination. Their moving melodies made you wanna move your romp. Faces delivered a host of jazz favorites including "Shake It Up" by Rick Braun and Boney James, as well as gospel hit "No Weapon". They also debuted "30 Seconds," a new song. This was our first opportunity to hear Faces, and believe me, they serve it up quite well.
