New pics from FanClub gig

We had a really rocking gig at The Vancouver Fan Club last week!
So many friends and fans came out and we had to play overtime....

It was Adam Rohrlick on guitar, Kerry Galloway on bass, Jason Decouto on keys, and Don Powrie on drums.

Ken Stewart is a musician and renaissance man, and truly has an amazing eye for photo and video -he shot these pics:

New Years Eve at Ten Ten Tapas


After an onslaught of great shows, I am most looking forward to New Year's Eve at Ten Ten Tapas, where we will have a classy yet exciting evening, with my tasty mix of live jazz, and even tastier food! This won't exactly be low key, but it will be warm and inviting, and it WILL get pretty rockin'!

We expect a very memorable event with a low dosage of hassle and a high dosage of fun....

Double Header Gigs Tomorrow- Wanna see your face in the place!

Two really cool gigs tomorrow, so come on by!

If you want to start your day right with a sumptuous Sunday Brunch and some even tastier jazz, come on down to Ten Ten Tapas in Vancouver's West End. It is just east of the Aquatic Centre on the SeaWalk at .... wait for it ... 1010 Beach #3. Beautiful view and the perfect atmosphere to get your mid-holiday Sunday revved up.

Speaking of revved up, I certainly will be by the time I start my evening set at The Vancouver Fan Club, that cool new venue at 1050 Granville. I will have my full 'n' funky band assembled for a concert style performance, similar to what I do on US festival and concert stages.

Show starts at 8 pm, but seats go fast and I suggest a 7 pm arrival. Tix are only $10 and there is a nice menu if you have worked up your appetite....

On stage will be Adam Rohrlick on guitar, Don Powrie on drums, Kerry Galloway on bass, Jason DeCouto on keys, and Miles Black and a few well known sax players have promised to come sit in. (Saxheads: if you are reading this, get that horn in the car and aim it downtown). It's gonna rock!

BTW, just announced: My latest single Ready When You Are 'goes for adds' at radio on Jan 13. If it catches fire, it will be my fourth Billboard charting song...

Exciting new performances coming up!

Today was Friday the 13th, but all was good!

I played two daytime events and am home now to prep for what is to come......
December is usually a busy month anyway, but there is a truly diverse and exciting schedule coming up for me...

I am humbled and honoured to be a part of the Universal Gospel Choir's Gala Christmas Concerts 'Yule: Share The Light'
Tomorrow, Sat Dec 14  7:30 pm ~

Sunday morning at 11:30 am, I am performing the Jazz Brunch at Vancouver's newest jazz spot, Ten Ten Tapas. It is on the SeaWalk near the Aquatic Centre and is easy to get to.

Monday through Friday next week I am playing Christmas Jazz in the lobby of Bentall Tower 5, at 550 Burrard as part of a Food Bank Drive  11:45-1:15 daily. Enjoy the music and sip a coffee in the Blenz lounge...

Thursday eve at 7 pm I am performing at Ten Ten Tapas for our 'Rockin' the Ribjoint' event, which will also feature bluesy hotshot Adam Rohrlick on guitar. BBQ, Beer, and Bourbon!

On Sunday Dec 22,  I am back for Jazz Brunch at Ten Ten Tapas, then I am thrilled to be part of A Starry Night Red Cross Benefit for Typhoon Victims (see poster below) at 5 pm.

Then on Boxing Day, the 26th, I will be skipping Ten Ten Tapas so the staff can rest!

One of the most exciting events for me is the opportunity to play a full tilt boogie show of all my hardest hitting tunes from my album repertoire, at The Fan Club Sunday Dec 29, at 1050 Granville St. I will be hitting it hard starting at 7:30, and have the JazzFunk Allstars with me: Kerry Galloway, Don Powrie, Adam Rohrlick, and Jason Decouto. The Fan Club is known for punchy acts, and we will be keeping in the tradition! Only $10! Get your midweek holiday jam on!

Then for New Year's Eve, I will be back at Ten Ten Tapas for a great evening, and will also feature Adam Rohrlick on guitar. See poster below.

Hope to see you out at one or more of these events..... 

Love and holiday cheer,



New single in January- Ready When You Are

Monday Dec 9 Typhoon Fundraiser

Hey everyone...

I am real busy these weeks, last and next!

Tomorrow I am in Richmond with a plethora of other acts, all for a very worthwhile cause- Typhoon victims who are still in a very bad way. Hope you can make it

Title will be "Gig For Life" 7:30 pm. Venue: Stage One Academy, Richmond

Please invite people. Kids are allowed. The venue is a studio but it will transform into a bar / lounge kind of thing with a stage and a bar. Let's do it! 

Today is brunch at Ten Ten Tapas if course. 

Tonight I will be in the audience for Amanda Woods amazing Christmas Show at the Kay Meek Theatre. Don't miss it if you have not seen her. Tix at the door or on FB.

This coming week I will be playing Christmas Jazz in the Bentall 5 lobby (550 Burrard) from 11:30- 1:30 weekdays. There is a Second Cup there where you can sip a mocha machiato and listen to swingin' Yuletide tunes. Which reminds me - I have a newly released  Christmas cd finally up on iTunes... Have a listen- it features Miles Black and Luis Giraldo.

Thursday is Rockin' the Ribjoint night at Ten Ten Tapas, live music starting at 7.

Friday and yesterday I played with Alfie Zappacosta at Blue Frog Theatre in White Rock for two sold out shows. He is known for hits like 'We Should Be Lovers' and other stuff including Dirty Dancing soundtrack. Great performer who has transformed him self as has Sting...

Hope to see you!

Jazz Brunch continues at Ten Ten Tapas, Vancouver

A BIG THANKS to those of you who made it to Ten Ten Tapas last Sunday for the inaugural jazz brunch featuring my tasty jazz notes... Come down this Sunday and see what you missed. 

It was packed and the kitchen was so slammed that some didn't get the great service TTT is known for... But they are ready now for the onslaught of jazz lovers (and foodies) who have yet to find a venue with a cool view, cool food, and cool music! Jazz lovers, your time has come..... 

Ten Ten Tapas is easy to find! It is 'almost' under the Burrard Bridge, just next to the Aquatic Centre. Get to Beach Ave via Howe St. from Pacific Blvd. and turn right and look for the lighted restaurant signs at 1000 Beach Ave, just 100 feet east of the bridge. Park nearby and walk through the little plaza at 1000 Beach to the SeaWalk, and Ten Ten Tapas will be on the right... you can't miss the little outdoor patio and signage. Parking is easy in the Aquatic Centre lot, on the street, or for free under the Granville Bridge, which leads you right on to the SeaWalk. This is right where the Granville Island Ferry docks, so come on over from the south side of False Creek, too!


Jazz Brunch every Sunday 11:30-2:30 pm. See what happened last Sunday- 

Thursdays has the four B's: BBQ, Bourbon, Beer, and Blues... so come on down 7-9 pm every Thursday! Funky live jazz and blues with Gabriel and band, and bourbon samplers and beer specials.

Fridays feature Amanda Wood and other local jazz stars. Always fun and exciting! There is other jazz talent, so don't just come for me!
New Year's Eve will be an amazing party with a sumptuous 3 course set menu, free valet parking, wine, dessert, and champers (included), and Gabriel's hand picked tunes done live and classy. Two seatings. All for around $75.00 (for the second 'party' seating).!

So make a point to drop in soon!
