A Night of Jazz and Romance a perfect evening for Sweethearts here in Dallas with a full evening of nothing but romance on the mind. The evening started with a nice romantic full course meal with a genera of songs from the opening act of Natural Change a local band of Dallas, with  their variety selections of smooth jazz and R&B hits from the 70’s and 80’s.

Followed by Alex Bugnon a jazz pianist and composer from Monteux, Switzerland. Bugnon studied at the Paris Conservatory and the Mozart Academy in Salzburg. At age nineteen, he moved to the U.S. and attended the Berklee School of Music. Alex Bugnon  performed some of his greatest hits last night such as, "Paris in May," "Harlem on My Mind," and "Sweet Water Creek," "
107° in the Shade" just to name a few that really got the crowed off their feet.

Peter White is a smooth jazz and jazz fusion guitarist. He also plays the accordion and the piano. He is known for his 20 year collaboration with Al Stewart. His brother, Danny White, was one of the original members who formed the UK based band Matt Bianco, rocked the house with his performances taking us back to many old school jams in the 70’s and 80’s with some of his hits such as, "Got To Be There," "Together Again," and "Venice Beach" really bringing some of the old school hits and bring back memories.

But there was much anticipation from the crowd for the main event of the show. Jonathan Kenneth Butler a singer-songwriter and guitarist, his music is often classified as R&B, jazz fusion or worship music. Born and raised in Athlone, Cape Town, South Africa, during Apartheid, Butler started singing and playing acoustic guitar as a child. Racial segregation and poverty during Apartheid has been the subject of many of his records. His first single was the first by a black artist played by white radio stations in the racially segregated South Africa and earned a Sarie Award, South Africa's equivalent to the GRAMMY Awards. Jonathan amazing and outstanding performance was phenomenally engaging, and he had the audience up on their feet, men and women serenading to one another.

You could definitely feel the love in the air. Jonathan performed most of his greatest hits such as "I’m On My Knees," "No Woman No Cry," "We Need You Lord," "Sarah Sarah" and a few other romantic hits for the love birds of the evening.
