It all began in Lansing Michigan.

Guitarist Charlie Wilson, invited a few friends and since that time,  496 West has continued firing up stages since their debut performance in 2008.   As a collective, they are experienced, professional and have garnered a reputation of being one of the best live bands based in mid-Michigan. With soulful vocals, a powerhouse horn section, killer keys, silky strings and indispensable percussions, 496 West offers soul, smooth jazz, R&B, a sprinkling of the blues and of course, gospel jazz styles

2018 is shaping up to be exceptional.
