Call your moms, Tampa Bay.

Everything’s been coming up Kenny G since the turn of the decade. The Weeknd summoned him to help on the remix of “In Your Eyes” in 2020, and the 65-year-old smooth jazz woodwind blower was even in the SpongeBob Squarepants movie thanks to his song, “Sponge on the Run.”

In March 2020, he became one of the last artists to play the Cap in downtown Clearwater, and two years later, Mr. “Songbird” returns to the same place.

And if you can't make it out to this weekend's jazz gig, the new documentary "Listening to Kenny G" is now streaming on HBOMax.
