I’m looking forward to a couple of upcoming shows. November 25 I will be at the Vault Cafe in Nanaimo with my trio, including Ben Dwyer and Hans Verhoeven. The Vault is a great place to play, the perfect combination of casual and concert, with good acoustics and sight-lines. Ben, Hans and I have logged a lot of hours together so it’s always fun to do a show with this group.
On December 2, I am the musical director for a fundraising event at Knox United in Parksville. The money raised will be put towards supporting a refugee family who will soon be settling in the area. Ben and Hans will once again be on deck, joined by Ken Lister, Rosemary Lindsay, Tina Jones, and the VIU Jazz Choir. We will be spreading a musical message of hope, optimism, and the importance of community. I hope that people in the Oceanside area will support this event and the underlying cause.
See you soon.
