Abstract Sounds is a 5-piece Alternative Jazz Fusion band from Cleveland, OH. Led by saxophonist Jevaughn Bogard. The band formed in late 2021 from a collection of jazz and dance music lovers who met over 15 years at Cleveland School of the Arts and who all just couldn't get enough Snarky Puppy, Ghost Note and Funky Knuckles. Abstract Sounds combines a variety of jazz idioms, soul music, drum and bass and funk.

Their unique brand of entertainment fuses deep harmony with a driving drum and bass sound and hard hitting horn lines that will make you want to dance and sing along all night.  Some say they cant get these songs out of their head because they can be very catchy at times and relatable.  Abstract Sounds strives to bring the dance element back to jazz. Jevaughn has had the pleasure of working along side and opening for artist such as Benny Golson, Clark Terry, Marcus Belgrave, Big Daddy Kane, Aretha Franklin, Chick Corea, Sean Jones, Rufus Reid, Jake Owens, Tye Tribbett, Kim Burrell and many more. Dont forget to bring your dancing shoes!
