Great jazz gigs this weekend

We are at the apex of this amazing summer and the music is flowing! I have been working on my new album, doing e-sessions with my L.A. co-producer extraordinaire Lew Laing, which is due in October. It is so nice to get out to enjoy the awesome weather after being cooped up in the studio as of late.... 

It is a very full weekend for me, with some really fun and jazzy events that I want to share with you!

This Friday at noon, I have my full band performing an outdoor show downtown, at the Bentall Summer Concert Series (lower plaza @ 1055 Dunsmuir). I have a powerful set of originals lined up, including my last 4 Billboard hits. With me will be guitarist Adam Rohrlick, drummer Don Powrie, keyboardist Jason Decouto, and bassist Kerry Galloway. This is the configuration we had at our awesome Fanclub gig a few months back. The plaza is an energized place, with a classy foodcourt nearby, so drop in for a truly enjoyable 90 minute lunch...


Friday evening at 9:30 I am performing at the Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam in the Unlisted Room. It is a cool vibe, with a tasty menu, and a fun hang! Come see Phoenix Rising in the Asylum as well, drop some dough at the slots, and make a night of it....

Typically on Saturdays I am at Ten Ten Tapas, where we really get the energy going in the whole room....
.... but this Saturday I will be at the Clearwater Casino in Washington, while the fantastic L J Mounteney holds court at Ten Ten Tapas (right on the seawall at 1010 Beach Ave). She has a punchy new show she is doing.... again, make rezzies!

And something special for this Sunday Aug 10! As many of you know, I had a steady (3 year) Sunday Brunch gig at the Dockside Restaurant on Granville Island. We had a lot of fun there, with on air promotions and live telecasts with CLEAR FM on site - back when they played smooth jazz.... (times change, sigh)...

ANYWAY, I'm back there this Sunday for an auspicious return to the legendary Sunday Brunch! I start at 11:30 and go till 2:30, so slide on in and enjoy the beautiful seaside locale! Rezzies recommended...



Monday night I am taking it easy and going to the Anza Club to see Top City at 7:30!

See you this weekend...

Oh BTW, we had a real fun music party on BC Day!

Winnipeg show today

Great weather for an awesome show today, with myself, Rob Tardik, and Walle Larsson at the Lyric outdoor stage!

Be sure to check out my Facebook Store for my hard to find CDs and downloads....

This weekend in music

It has proven to be a sum-sum-summery month, perfect for any kind of fun, except maybe .... curling.
 
I will be at my now regular Friday gig at the swank new Hard Rock Casino starting at 9:30 and I have lots of great new tunes to funkify and jazzify you in the UNLISTED LOUNGE. The food is good too. Come and try out a new pastime, at what used to be the Boulevard Red Robinson Casino.

I won't be at Ten Ten Tapas as per usual this Saturday- filling in will be soulman Riley Inge. Check him out.

Sunday I am performing with my award winning guitar buddy Rob Tardik in Winnipeg on the fabulous and iconic Lyric Theatre outdoor stage. It will be a great festival and saxist Walle Larsson will also perform. The weather looks good for an outdoor show, so put out the word.

Back to Hard Rock and Ten Ten Tapas the following week... Come enjoy!
