On the road this week

I'll be in the Phoenix area for the Chandler Jazz Festival this weekend on Saturday April 2 with the fantastic Lamar Gaines on keys, Will Gaines on bass, Buddy Banks on drums, and Adam Armijo on guitar. I also have some great sponsors who came on board, such as Michael Lyles, owner and featured voice of Smoothjazzontherocks radio; Chuck Kelly, my friend and personal State Farm agent in AZ; Doug Hoxeng and Opa Life; and Chris Shea and Tromba Instruments.

This will be an awesome festival in South Phoenix area! Come on down and soak up the vibe..... April 2 at 6:15 pm. The Main Stage is located in Downtown Library Plaza - 178 E. Commonwealth Ave., south of Chandler Blvd and east of Arizona Ave. I'll be rocking my Tromba Hybrid Ultralight horns! Got good press too!

The following night on Sunday April 3, I will be at Opa Life 6-9 pm for a show with the well known guitarist Michael Powers. This one will be more intimate but alot of fun...

Next Saturday April 9 I will be back in Vancouver at Ten Ten Tapas for our rollicking format there. Come welcome me back!

I have some unexpectedly fun gigs coming up at the Blue Martini, Sylvia Hotel, the Fairview, Sun Yat Sen, and Frankies. Follow me at http://gabrieljazz.com/shows.htm

Two rippin' jazz shows this weekend!

For those of you who missed last Friday's show at The Blue Martini, here is your chance to partake of the funky and swingin' sounds you didn't hear.

Friday I am at Frankie's Italian Kitchen with a five piece band, including the ubiquitous Miles Black on piano, Brian Monroney from Seattle on guitar, Laurence Mollerup on basses, and Joel Fountain on drums! 8-10:30 pm  Rezzies (778) 727-0337   765 Beatty St Vancouver

Last week was sans guitar, so this Friday we expand our sound with Brian's touch. He was in Miami Sound Machine, and was Tom Jones' music director for 12 years, but he is a U of Miami music grad, so he can play some heavy crossover jazz....

Now don't forget..... Saturday is my usual night at Ten Ten Tapas, and there is a reason my night has been going on for over two years.... it is a perfect trifecta of jazz, food, and ambiance (and that includes one of the top five voted patios in the city!) 
7-10 pm, make a rezzie at 604-689-7800
