John Tesh is a pianist and composer of pop and contemporary Christian music, as well as a radio host and television presenter. Besides playing keyboards (including the piano), he plays the trumpet and sings, and has sold over 7 million records. Earlier this year, Tesh and his band began reinventing the live concert experience, adding an eight-member horn section for swing arrangements of classic songs. By incorporating the horn section into the show for the first time, Tesh returns to his roots, since, before playing the piano, he played the trumpet in high school and college jazz bands. With the added horn section, he hopes to introduce young fans to a new sound while offering a bit of nostalgia to the older crowd. Tesh has won 6 music Emmys, has 4 gold albums, 2 Grammy nominations and an Associated Press award for investigative journalism.
