James Ward Band

The JWB’ was formed in the 18th and Vine District of Kansas City. James, a native of Kansas

City, attended Florida A&M University, where he studied Tuba, and played acoustic and electric

bass. James’ experience, skill, and reputation has led him to perform throughout the United

States and on a tour of South Africa with vocalist Oleta Adams. This is a contemporary jazz band,

whose show consists of Latin, R&B, fusion, funk, jazz, and gospel music. Their debut album In

Perspective, hit the Smooth Jazz Indie Charts at #42, made the top 20. The

recording stayed there for a number of weeks. That album, followed by Groove

Axis released in 2010. This is a family band, with James’ wife Angela at

the keyboards. She is a composer and record producer, who brings a blend of

fusion jazz, and classical music to everything she plays. Angela began playing

piano at three-years-old. The musical couple’s son Jaylen, has become the

drummer of the band. Not to be outdone by his mom, he began playing drums at

two! Jaylen will attend KCKCC in the fall. Guitarist, Terry Swope who has been

featured at Holy-Field with KC Aces for the past several years, will be on-hand to sing and play

guitar. We are excited to bring The JWB to the Vineyard for a groovin’ night of music.
