THE JAM JAWN |Philly's Ultimate Jam Session Series
Featuring Gab Guma
Host: LaTreice V Branson

Have you ever wanted to jam with your favorite musician? I mean, you've been going to all the shows, and you know all the songs. Would you like to participate in how the artist creates their signature grooves and melodies, transcending genre, developing musical arrangements and lyrics, blending traditional and unconventional soundscapes?
Well, that is the essence of "THE JAM JAWN".

This month, the jam will be led by musician, dancer, singer, and educator, Gab Guma.

Gabriele Guma, a.k.a. Gab Guma
The guy with the big afro and the weird accent, Ethiopian-born and Italian-raised Gab Guma, is a professional dancer (formerly with Philadanco), teacher and singer and musician. He is best known for his previous work as lead guitarist, writer and front man of his own Philly-based rock/soul band GAB GUMA & Tangible Truth, the hip hop group Tangled Thoughts , the hip hop/rock band GrindCity and now, Stereotytans. While developing the sound and concept of his new heavy rock band Stereotytans ,Gab has been recording an extensive catalogue of songs in anticipation of his highly anticipated solo project under the guidance of Westtown Entertainment.
Gab has toured for most of his life as both a dancer and musician. In recent years he toured with hip hop/soul legend Ms. Lauryn Hill, playing alongside legendary bassist Doug Wimbish. Gab has toured with Grammy Award-Winning band Living Colour and N.E.R.D. His great musical range allowed him to also share the stage with major artists of all genres including Method Man, Nas, Mob Deep, Ciara,Kindred, Take 6, Wayna, Syleena Johnson, Eric Gales, Silvertide, Marc Rizzo (of Soulfly), Carol Riddick, Bryant Pugh and Floetry to name a few. Gab is a highly respected and sought after musician for live performance and studio work.
Gab has developed into a versatile guitarist who uses the guitar as his second language. Gab draws influences from Jimi Hendrix to Steve Vai, Carlos Santana to Miles Davis, Slash and Tom Morrello to classical composers into his own signature riffs, unique sound and passionate solos all while displaying a very energetic physical live performance. With a style that is constantly evolving, the ambition to reach new musical hights and the desire to tell his unique story, Gab is excited to realize his life long dream to merge his passions, his cultural influences and various talents into an eclectic and unique expression of love and positivity.

This is going to be EPIC!
