John Roberts


John Roberts is a native of Detroit, Michigan, and a child of the musical heritage the city possesses. His father, John Sr. was also very active in writing and production during the Motown Era. Having been raised in the Church Of Our Prayer led by his uncle, the late Dr. James L. Lofton Sr, his ties to the church and gospel community have remained strong over the years. A vocalist in his own right, he’s appeared on television’s Showtime At The Apollo, performed in the stage play “Ain’t Nothing Like Family”, and has shared the stage and recorded with The Dramatics, Gladys Knight, Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Winans, Bebe & CeCe Winans, the late Ronald Winans and many more.
John served as Education Coordinator and Community Outreach for the Detroit Jazz Festival from 2007 through 2012. During that tenure was largely responsible for starting and managing the festival’s Jazz Infusion Project in where professional musicians were recruited to go into area schools, to conduct workshops, clinics, and collaborative performances. Under his management, the program acquired significant grant assistance and grew to be a multi-school, year-round effort, and has helped to propel high school level musicians into some of the greatest collegiate jazz programs in the country. He continues to work with school band directors throughout country to provide unique learning and performance opportunities for young students of jazz.
Additionally, he was also responsible for booking talent and managing five of the festival’s seven stages. Having created quite a network of performers, managers, promoters and venues over the years, in 2012 John branched off into Artist Management and Promotion and established Nucleus Entertainment, where the stable of talent is fierce and growing. It is becoming a home for artists from several genres.
In 2013, John joined Rebirth Inc. as Project Director and continues his work in education, particularly in the school systems that lack adequate resources.
