The Bobatoon Collective sound is soulful, passionate and highly improvisational. The 5+ piece Jazz/Funk/R&B band is led and fronted by a tall, towering sax man and vocalist, Khalif Bobatoon and his wife & co-lead singer, Kerie.
They met in college at the Hartt School of Music (University of Hartford, CT), where the late, world renown jazz saxophonist, Jackie McLean chaired the department and mentored them. While their on stage chemistry in school was remarkable, their promise to collaborate together after school manifested years later into having beautifully talented children and a thriving business venture.
The Bobatoon Collective’s mastery of taking “that’s my jam” songs and redeveloping them on the spot has been a dependable trademark for followers of this dynamic fellowship.
Through the hypnotic rendering of hip hop, be-bop, retro-soul and funk, they easily allure their listeners in ways that lift the spirit and raises their consciousness.
“The Bobatoon Collective is music you listen to not just with your ears, but with your heart and your soul.” -Les Brown, world-renowned motivational speaker and best-selling author.
The sheer power and passion of their live performances generate enough energy to light up a city square block from any venue.
Their SOUND is a Freestyle Freedom Movement…
