He has been soothing souls since well before he was in high school. Soon, on Friday, March 29 he is set to soothe your soul again. Mark Allen Felton, affectionately known as Panther, will be bringing his horn and talents to the San Bernardino Valley College Auditorium.
Blessed with many gifts and the drive to turn his talents into success, Felton, an acclaimed saxophonist has delivered with four brilliant albums. His fifth release, Soul Real is dropping later this month, so the crowd in attendance at the SBVC Auditorium on Friday, March 29 will be treated to an exclusive debut.
Felton admits this release will be different than previous recordings but that fans and soon-to-be fans will love it.
“This one is a little more upbeat—a little more funkier than the last record.”
And really Felton digs the funk. However, it is just one of his many musical inspirations. He also likes jazz, gospel and obviously soul music.
His hipstrumentals, as he calls them are sure to hit your senses in all the right places. And many can bear witness.
Throughout his career Felton has played with some of the greats including Grammy Award winner Patti Labelle, the late great Al Jarreau, Bobby Womack, Kirk Whalum and many more.
On Friday, March 29th, Felton will be performing music from his latest release live in a concert event sponsored by the Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce, Inland Cities East and the San Bernardino Valley College Black Faculty and Staff Association. Included in the night’s festivities is a cocktail social from 6:00pm – 6:45pm and the concert main event from 7:00 – 9:30. During the night there will be door prizes, giveaways, and, of course, Mark Allen Felton.
