Sun. November 1st 2020 @ Hermann's Jazz Club Victoria BC (All Ages)
1:30pm - 3:00pm doors at 12:30pm
Keeping the New Orleans Traditional Jazz and early Swing flame burning…..while keeping your feet tapping and your soul replenished. These are musicians who share your love of this era of music loved by Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington to name only a few, tunes you will recognize with a rhythm to feel, strong and true. The trumpet played by Alfons Fear is bringing you those loved melodies, with the addition of some vocals, boosted by the Benny Goodman-esque clarinet of Al Pease and yes- your requests for “Back At The Chicken Shack” will be fulfilled! Avram McCagherty brings a sparkle to any of the many bands he leads and we get to enjoy him, too. His banjo and vocals are a treasure for our city and then - wait for it…underpinning it all is one of the best bass players you will find anywhere, Joey Smith. So to finish and embellish is the early jazz piano style of Toni Blodgett, leader and with some vocals, too. I think you will want to be there with us in what is designed to honor every safety rule there is here at Canada’s oldest jazz club and restaurant. The ticket price is $15.00 plus $2.50 room charge plus GST (5%), and the live stream will bring the show to you wherever you are in the world!
