Two Shows: Set One Features Brandon Woody; Set Two Features The Admirables Large Group

December 1 from 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Nathan-Paul @ BOP STOP

December 1st at the Bop Stop: A double-treat variety show! Kick off with a quintet featuring yours truly and the astounding trumpet maestro from Baltimore, Brandon Woody – a recent showstopper at the Rubber City Jazz Fest. Our synergy is electric! The night escalates with the Admirables in full force; expect the usual brilliance, only twice as loud and doubly delightful. Don't miss this electrifying evening!

Tickets for this event will be $25 in advance, $30 at the door. And surprise! We'll stream tonight's show on the BOP STOP's Facebook page at showtime. Accessing the stream is free but donations are encouraged and directly support the band. To donate, select "Donation: Livestream Attendee" (which is a $10 blanket ticket price) as your Ticket Option above.


Nathan-Paul grew up a pastor’s son from Cleveland, and knows how to deliver sound medicine to the people. His velvety lo-fi sounds are a vibe-heavy soul party, fusing modern trap, 70s funk, and fiery southern gospel. He writes for pure enjoyment. “The way I go about writing, I’m like extreme southern hospitality. I’ll always have something for you. I won’t let you leave until you take something with you.”, he said. Singing choir by age 5, Nathan is a multi-instrumentalist specializing in saxophone and flute, as well as production and composition. Though he may defy genre constructs, Nathan-Paul is a Jazz Studies graduate from the University of Akron, and is improvising all the time - influenced by greats Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Louis Armstrong.

Nathan-Paul was the music director for Colmine recording artist Wesley Bright & The Honeytones, during which time he contributed toward arrangements and songwriting, and opened for bands including War, Tower of Power, Lee Fields, and Charles Bradley. Written for Bright, Nathan’s song ‘Happiness’ earned him a placement with Nike skateboard.

The artist’s newest project, Nathan-Paul & The Admirables, brings an aggressive, rock-edge to his sound medicine. This project that focuses on energy over notes has already led a successful tour with Moon Hooch and a performance backing soul-giant Dwele. December 1st will be the first ever performance of the Party Bus version of The Admirables (large group version).
