The Braxton Brothers, Nelson and Wayne, bring over two decades of exceptional music to the smooth jazz scene, earning a revered spot as the “funky twins of Smooth Jazz.” They started their illustrious career in 1996, captivating audiences with their debut album that stormed the charts and helped establish the 6-string bass and saxophone combination as signature elements of their sound. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, the brothers not only perform but write, record, and produce their own music, creating a distinctively melodic, smooth, yet groovy sonic experience.

With six studio albums and over 70 commercially released original compositions, The Braxton Brothers continue to innovate by composing lyrics first, a unique approach for instrumentalists, ensuring their music resonates deeply and never fades into the background. Their latest single, “Groovin’ at the Symphony Hall,” exemplifies their blend of classic smooth jazz with symphonic elements, creating an immersive musical journey.

The duo’s commitment to uplifting spirits and fostering a connection through music is evident in their live performances, described by Wayne as moments where “we laugh, we joke around…everyone’s best comes when they are themselves.” Their upcoming appearances include the Dave Koz & Friends at Sea 2024 Cruise, The Low Country Jazz Festival, the Long Beach Jazz Festival and others across the country, promising fans on both coasts a dynamic, heartfelt and fun experience.
