Will Holton is a Buffalo-bred saxophonist who draws inspiration from Jazz, R&B, and Soul artists. An ambassador for the country’s largest Juneteenth Festival, he has also performed at statewide music festivals including Buffalo’s Pine Grill Reunion, Rochester’s Roc the Park and Afrikan American Festivals, Syracuse’s CNY Jazz Festival, and annual performance in White Plains, NY, and Washington DC.

RNSM is an unparalleled group of Buffalo musicians, performing as a trio, quartet, or quintet. RNSM’s sound is a refreshing fusion of several genres—from Funk, Jazz, and Pop to R&B – and it is Latin Rhythms that continue to drive the band’s unique sound.

Celina Graves was born into early 90’s music, surrounded by the funky sounds of new R&B, jazz, hip hop, and the music of her father, who as a professional musician, played and wrote at home. California-born and bred, Celina strives to inspire people to be themselves and never change for anyone or anything. In addition to progressing to the semifinal round of season 15 of Americas Got Talent T.V. show, she sang the National Anthem for the 2020 San Diego MLB Playoff game and their 2021 season opener along with the MLS LA Galaxy game.
