Our Mission

Established 2012 in Chicago, Illinois by founders Tony and Chanel Cazeau, New Black Renaissance was born from a vision to foster humanities in music; bridging the gap between old and new in an effort to preserve its history, and the cultures responsible for our most cherished sounds. NBR is not your traditional band, but rather an organization helmed by individuals such as the Cazeaus, Isaiah Sharkey, Sharay Reed, Quin Anderson, Andre Henry, Chris McBride, Leon Q. Allen, LeRoyce Hawkins, Adam Brown and propelled by 30+ career musicians on a mission to provide community access to the arts, education, promote longevity, and build legacies for generations to come.  

EXPERIENCE NBR

Experience
NBR Chicago

New Black Renaissance has a long history behind them stacked with Grammy awards, Stellar awards, Billboard hits, television appearances and stadium tours supporting some of music’s most influential artists. However, the most important fact may be that each of them knows Chicago as home. A cultural mecca synonymous with the biggest and the best, rich in love and spirit, but equally relentless, cold and utterly unsparing. As a result, the group has entrenched themselves in Chicago’s story, cultivating unique and meaningful experiences in every corner of the city and beyond for over a decade, having held rank in such venues as City Winery, House of Blues, Buddy Guy’s Legends, Kingston Mines, Promontory, Bassment, Underground, Wild Hare; the list goes on.
