“The Paul Reed Smith Band performs all over the world including England, Germany, Japan, Canada, and Italy, and we are thrilled to have them at the Avalon Theatre! The band describes their music as "Chesapeake Gumbo" – an Annapolis/ Baltimore music style that is a combination of funk, rock, R & B, jazz, fusion, gospel, New Orleans Meters, hip-hop, and melodic instrumental music.”
