Renowned smooth & soul jazz group, HUBBS GROOVE, returns with their special 3rd annual early evening concert to celebrate the life & legacy of Civil Rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr., with the music of Phyllis Hyman And Angela Bofill! Featuring Roger Maple, Jonathan Jones, George Granville, Robert Hubbard Jr. and special guest vocalist, Arielle Green!

Hubb’s Groove is a sensational group from Cleveland that plays jazz, soul, gospel, classical and R&B music. The band was founded in 1995 under the name “Moment’s Notice,” and featured founding band members Rodney Hubbard, Cliff Coleson, David Heman, Eddie Baccus Jr. and Robert Hubbard Jr.
As various band members went out on tour, the Hubb’s Groove lineup has changed, with the introduction of musicians Robert White, Andrew Braxton, Keith Mckelly, Jermaine Lockhart, Tony Pulizzi and Walter Barnes Jr. In 2000, the band changed its name to “Straight to the Point,” then again in 2004 to “Change on Five,” before arriving at its final destination, “Hubb’s Groove” in 2006.
The band has shared the stage with legendary performers such as Kirk Whalum, Jonathan Butler, Earth Wind & Fire, Wayman Tisdale and Pieces of a Dream, to name a few.
Join us at BLU Jazz+ as some of Northeast Ohio’s finest smooth jazz players assemble for their annual musical tribute to Dr. King – tickets will move quickly, so get yours now!

Special Guest Vocalist:Arielle T. Green is a native of Youngstown, OH and a 2016 graduate of Anderson University (Anderson, IN) with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. Arielle has been fond of the arts from a young age as a member of Archangel Dance Theater (Youngstown, OH) and eventually joining her school band and choirs in the Austintown Local Schools. Miss Green began performing on the national stage during her high school years under the direction of Dr. Carol L. Baird and The Youngstown Connection, a song and dance troupe of area high school students that served as goodwill ambassadors for Ohio and the Mahoning Valley. During her tenure with The Youngstown Connection, Arielle has been a featured soloist at various venues across the nation.
As an adult, she has previously opened for internationally acclaimed contemporary jazz artists Kim Waters, Paul Taylor, Marion Meadows and Jeff Lorber. Green also served as a soloist with the Anderson (IN) Symphony Orchestra, and as a background vocalist for Grammy Award-winning Southern Gospel artists, The Gaither Vocal Band, among many others. Ms. Green also exercises her love for the classical arts as well. In Spring 2018, she assumed the role of «Annie» in Opera Western Reserve's production of Porgy and Bess (Gershwin). In the Summer of 2018, she was honored to be a featured opening act for internationally acclaimed and fifteen-time Grammy Award-winning cellist, Yo-Yo Ma, for the Kennedy Center's Culture in Action program in Warren, Ohio.
Arielle is currently pursuing a career as a professional vocalist and performs regularly at venues in the Midwest and East Coast as a solo and background artist.
