Maryland’s own legendary guitar maker Paul Reed Smith brings his namesake band, The Paul Reed Smith Band, to Maryland Hall for a live outdoor concert!

The PRS Band weaves together their own combination of funk, rock, R&B, fusion and DC/Baltimore groove that Smith has described as “Chesapeake Gumbo.” Patrons will hear a diverse mix of music ranging from funk, rock and blues to R&B, Cajun swing and reggae.  The Band has traveled all over the world including favorite venues in Germany, Italy and Japan, to spread love through good music. The Band’s most recent album release is called “Time to Testify.”   

The Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Band is composed of the Grainger brothers (Greg and Gary) in the rhythm section, Michael Ault and Bill Nelson on guitars, vocalist Mia Samone and Paul Reed Smith on guitar.

With Kentavius Jones

Music has always been a part of Kentavius Jones' life from his most infantile stages of existence. He picked up the guitar and begin singing during his senior year of high school. Using ears as his guide, Jones learned how to play everything from  Radiohead to Ray Charles. Dave Matthews to Marvin Gaye. The  Pixies to James Brown.

Jones is currently performing his newly released debut album, The Bohemian Beatbox. His style is a combination of singer songwriter and soul with an indie sensibility. Jones has shared the stage with Snarky Puppy, Mint Condition and the Roots.
