Sedona Entertainment: Jennifer Batten
Lead guitarist for Michael Jackson for over 10 years
November 5th, 2016 (7:00 pm)
Jennifer Batten–Michael Jackson’s Lead Guitarist, returns to Sound Bites Grill! She was lead guitarist for Michael Jackson for over 10 years—including three of his world tours. She played guitar on two of Jeff Beck’s world tours. Who is she? She is Jennifer Batten. The buzz on Jennifer Batten rose from the guitar underground, and the guitar magazines promptly began chronicling her savvy musicianship and highly original approach to the electric guitar in print. At one point Batten was in 6 different bands, playing everything from straight ahead rock, to metal,fusion, and funk. A major turning point came when she was selected from over one hundred guitarists to play in Michael Jackson’s highly skilled band which toured the world for one and a half years playing for over four and a half million people. Jennifer wasted no time after the” Bad” Tour’s grand finale, diving into work on her own album with renown producer (and Stevie Wonder guitarist) Michael Sembello. The stunning results can be heard on “Above, Below, and Beyond”, the title appropriately describing the interesting diversity within. With this debut release, the world at large learned what all the excitement was about. For more information or to purchase tickets to this Sedona event please visit Sound Bites Grill.
