Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Centre presents an evening with UK Soul’s Incognito featuring Maysa and special guests Khari Cabral Simmons and Chantae Cann on Friday, March 26 at 8 p.m.

Incognito is recognized as one of the best funk/jazz/soul outfits in the world. A pioneer of the “acid jazz” movement who has delighted listeners and dancers for decades, Incognito has scored hits with versions of Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing” and Ronnie Laws’ “Always There,” selling more than a million records worldwide in the process.

Maysa feature photoMaysa first gained fame as the featured voice on British acid jazz band Incognito’s defining ’90s era hits such as “Don’t You Worry About A Thing”, “Still A Friend of Mine” and “Deep Waters.” She then launched a concurrent solo career with the hits “Am I Wrong (For Lovin’ You),” “Friendly Pressure” and “Hypnotic Love.” With a sultry alto on par with Phyllis Hyman and Patti Austin’s honeyed notes, Maysa should be one of the biggest names in the urban mainstream but instead she’s earned a loyal underground audience.

Tickets on sale this Friday, January 9 at 10 am ($89.00, $69.00, $53.00 & $29.00 plus applicable fees).  Click here to purchase!
