Carazz has been a union of creative musicians since 2003 and has steadily entertained audiences at venues around Chicagoland, such as The Negro League Cafe, The Checkerboard, Geno's, Hidden Pearl Art Cafe, 50 Yard Line, Cuatro, and numerous private gatherings. Recently, Carazz opened for Jeff Lorber, Ledisi, Euge Groove, Rick Braun, Maysa, and Everette Harp at the Country Club Hills Jazz Fest. They also performed at the Jazz Unites 26th annual jazz fest 2007, the June 29, 2008 Taste of Chicago, and the Tex-Fest 2008 in Houston, Texas, playing their arrangements of jazz standards flavored with the Carribean and Funk elements that kept people dancing in the aisles.
