My name is Hudson Howard. I am a solo performing artist. Who plays the flute and the alto flute with rhythm section music. The rhythm section music comes from an ipod and or a laptop. And it streams through my PA sound system. The types of music that I play and perform are jazz, the blues, rhythm and blues and salsa. I have experience playing in numerous settings and venues. Including, clubs,libraries, festivals and television. And I also have access to other musicians if a larger group such as a trio, quartet or larger is needed. For a quality musical performance, remember Hudson.

What to Expect
Only the best in music and professionalism on stage. Our music is a combination of quality cover music and originals. The rhythm section music (the I.R.S) (invisible rhythm section) is also of the highest character.
My name is Hudson and the main direction in my career has been that of a high school social studies teacher. But music has always been a primary focus in my life, even as a social studies teacher. There were times when I was teaching during the day and playing music(clubs, libraries, television(Connecticut Local Access and Showtime at the Apollo) and wherever music was needed, at night. I am now a young looking recently retired social studies teacher and once in a while I substitute teach. But music is my primary focus now. I am available as a solo musician and as a duo, with a wonderful vocalist named Grace. And if a situation calls for a larger size(trio, quartet, quintet) group of musicians. I have them at my avail. Give us an opportunity and I guarantee that you won't regret it.
