Calling all musicians!

Sunday night just became the most fun night of the week! Singers and musicians, get in some long overdue hot licks at the iconic Sylvia Hotel (Beach Ave @ Gilford), get a free drink and try their fabulous prime rib.... A great place for a date night too!

This is the new Music Central, starting Oct 2, and ongoing every Sunday 7-9 pm, with free parking below, lots of backing and backline (keys, drums, amps), and lots of perks. Let me know if you are planning on coming (preferably) or just drop in... 


Terrific events in White Rock, North Van, Downtown and Surrey this week!

What a busy week for me, music events and new locations I know you will want to attend!

WEDNESDAY SEPT 21 I am part of a really fun Italian themed event at the famed Ronnie G's in White Rock at 6pm. Joining me will be Mimi and Ikuko. The food and fun will be splendida~
FRIDAY SEPT 23  I will be haunting the chi-chi lounge at the Pinnacle Hotel in North Vancouver. I will have featured artist Lisa Dunn joining me, on the heels of her recent hot radio charting album. Great atmosphere and food! Lonsdale@Esplanade 7 pm

SATURDAY SEPT 24  I get to treat my downtown fans to the patio and seawall locale of my usual Saturday haunt Ten Ten Tapas at 7 pm. Always great vibes and many special guests....

SUNDAY SEPT 25 is something special with my six-piece band at Northwood United Church Jazz Vespers.

On board with me are LJ Mounteney (vocals), Nathen Aswell (bass), Jason Decouto (piano), Adam Rohrlick (guitar), Nino DiPasquale (drums). A glorious time will be had by all!

Maui Jazz Festival Update

I've done a couple of pre-festival promo shows so far and jammed with the Prince of the Marsalis family, trombonist Delfeayo, and sax star Javon Jackson.

Full show tomorrow- I'll do my set of punchy originals- and a big jam afterward with Larry Coryell and Joe Lewis Walker. 

Larry with me and my lovely wife Sylvia.

New videos and Jazz Festival news from Gabriel

I'm at the Maui Jazz Fest for a Sept 10 show, and I have a great band to work with over there, including Paul Marchetti, Benny Uyetake, Dave Graber, and Brian Cuomo. Larry Coryell, Javon Jackson, Delfeayo Marsalis, and many more are also on the bill!

I finally got around to editing a couple of the many cool songs my band and I played at Frankie's in July. 
That show was a nice mix of smooth and classic tunes.... the only thing we couldn't fit in was some of my NOLA inspired material!

Hope you enjoy the videos!

Also, here is a new one for my latest single Charmed Life, which is just entering the charts as 'most added'.
