If you dig the musical sensibility of Jason Mraz even while disembodied from that adorable lop-sided smile, then listening to Justin Nozuka should feel as pleasant as diving head-first into a pool of marshmallow Peeps. Equipped with the voice of an angel and an acoustic guitar, his putty-rendering abilities are highly developed and (unlike most pop artists) not limited to the demographic of tenderhearted females ages 13 to 35. Lending force to Nozukas nation-wide tour is Carribean-born Alex Cuba whose sugarcane-sweet melodies are a potent cocktail of Latin soul and eclectic musical influences. If thats not enough to make you reach for your insulin, the smooth sound of Ry Cuming will also join in the merry-making. So prepare yourself for night brimming with chill vibes as this feel-good trio descends upon the Anaheim House of Blues.
