The Bobatoon Collective sound is soulful, passionate and highly improvisational. The 6-piece group is fronted by a tall, towering sax man and vocalist, Khalif Bobatoon, who's performed with such artists as Wynton Marsalis, Lalah Hathaway, Rachele Ferrell, India Arie, Montel Jordan and Jackie McLean. The band’s mastery of taking “that’s my jam” songs and redeveloping them on the spot has been a dependable trademark for followers of this dynamic fellowship. Through a hypnotic rendering of hip hop, be-bop, retro-soul and funk, their originals easily allure their listeners in ways that lift the spirit and raises their consciousness.
"The Bobatoon Collective is music you listen to not just with your ears, but with your heart and your soul.” – Les Brown, world-renowned motivational speaker and best-selling author.
The sheer power and passion of their live performances generate enough energy to light up a city square block from any venue.
