PCAMI* is pleased to announce the collaboration and music alliance with one of Kansas City's own music icon, EVERETT DEVAN.
Mr. DeVan has been a productive force in the music business for over 30 years and has had the opportunity to perform all over Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States. Mr DeVan has performed and shared top billing with artists such as: B.B. King, Count Basie, Tom Jones, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Nancy Wilson, Charles Earland, Herbie Mann, The Mills Brothers, Hank Crowford, Jack McDuff, and Luciano Pavarotti to mention a few.
Music impressario Paul Collins said, "Mr. Devan is a music icon in Kansas City and is in high demand locally, nationally and internationally. He is well known and respected in the music industry and I love to watch how he creates bridges for the young and upcoming jazz artists from Bobby Watson's jazz studies program at UMKC to develop their professional skills. We have several ideas and initiatives to develop and I am extremely pleased to be a part of the process. We are planning festival appearances around the country as we speak and Mr. Devan has more music to document."
