Jazz Café March 2015 Newsletter
Hello I hope this letter finds you being fabulous in every possible way. This is the third newsletter of the year for fans of Jazz Café and I’m excited to tell you what is going on. I have put together a great year of music for us Jazz lovers and entertainment seekers. From our monthly gigs at Ricardo’s to Capri Poolside Lounge then all summer with Jazz at the KAS and our Fall prgramme back to where it all began at The Black BOx.
As March ends and spring begins I am very excited to announce that Elizabeth Shepherd has agreed to perform as part of my Jazz Café Presents…series. We will be hosting this exceptional Juno nominated artist on Easter Sunday Evening, April 5. I have booked the Okanagan Campus Theatre on 1000 K.L.O. Road. I have priced tickets as low as possible at only $20 adults and $15 for 18 year olds and under and $25 at the door (cash or cheque only at the door). A few years ago, as a special surprise to Jazz Cafe members, I invited Elizabeth to perform at the Black Box when she travelled through the Okanagan. The venue was packed and everyone there left knowing they have witnessed magic. I booked a bigger theatre to make sure there are no disappointments this time - we sold out two weeks before. Her new album The Signal already is being praised with importance and even quoted by The Evening Standard (UK) "An important work". Her Jazz has infusions of pop with a hint R & B. Please purchase your tickets through www.eventbrite.ca and type in Elizabeth Shepherd. She will be travelling with her band which includes Scott Kemp – bass, Colin Kingsmore - drums and vocals, Gord Grdina – guitar and Jon Day - trumpet and vocals. It’s a perfect evening to listen to jazz. Cocktail hour is 6.30 p.m. and the show starts at 7.30 p.m. Put this date in your diary, tell your friends and get your tickets today. Thank you for helping me be able to invite and support great musicians.
The fall brings Jazz Café home to the Black BOx for a series of shows in September 4, November 22 and on the main stage for December 23 or an extra $50 these shows can be included onto your membership. You can e-transfer your membership payment or purchase them by cheque.
