ACT Jams Productions presents Chris “Big Dog” Davis’ Birthday Bash, an All-White Attire, Smooth Jazz Affair in the orchestra lobby, featuring chart-topping flutist Althea Rene along with vocalists Barbara Fowler and Christi Jones. It's going down in a major way. An all female line-up bringing you the best in today's grooves! This show will be Off The Hook...Make sure to purchase tickets asap!

Christopher "Big Dog” Davis is a Waterbury native and two-time Grammy nominated writer and producer, who has earned ten Billboard top #1 smooth jazz records over the past eight years. We will be celebrating Big Dog's Birthday and I know he'll be happy to see you..."It's All Love"

Soul Jazz Flutist Althea Rene is one the world’s most exciting solo improvisational flutists and regarded by some as a “master of her craft.” Her hit song “In the Flow” allowed her to become the first flute player in the history of the Billboard Chart to reach the #1 spot. She was born December 25th in Detroit, Michigan and began her musical journey at age four as a classical flutist. She studied classical music while attending Howard University in Washington D.C. and later gained further musical inspiration from the accomplishments of Yusef Lateef, Ian Anderson, and her father, one of Motown's original Funk Brothers, Dezie McCullers.

Recording Artist Barbara Fowler will be debuting her new music which includes a hot single titled "I'm Just Saying" or "IJS" as well as some very tasteful selections for this Up Close and Personal evening of muisc. Trust and believe, you do not want to miss the energy and vibe of her new project.

Christi Jones is an electifying vocalist that will captivate a crowd and leave you wanting more. She's a bonafide recording artist that can be heard on the single "No Sleep" from saxophonist Kim Waters new album titled Rhythm and Romance.

Following the concert, guests will be invited to take to the dance floor for an Old School Dance Party featuring everyone's favorite R&B, funk and club classics spun by the evening's host, Al "DJ ACT" Taylor from 94.3 WYBC-FM.
