Concert: Jazz Connection Big Band, Oct 9

Friday, October 9. Doors at 8:30, jazz at 9:00 $15 at the door: Made up of talented musicians from all over southwestern Ontario, The Jazz Connection Big Band is a 20-piece band dedicated to playing great, straight-ahead jazz. The JCBB will carry us once again into the cool space of surround sound big band music.

Concert: Jean-Paul De Roover, Oct 8

Jean-Paul De Roover: Thursday, October 8. 8:00. $5 at the door or PWYC: All Ages. With an innovative approach to music, Jean-Paul De Roover is much more than a solo artist. Accompanied by live looping, guitars and a voice used as an instrument, this ‘sonic architect’ builds his songs from foundation to facade before your very eyes. Beginning with dead silence, his performance could lead anywhere: full a capella harmonies, rhythmic tribal beats, noise-layered worlds of ambient rock, campfire-folk, electro-ballads and anything in between. With lyrical content that can be brutally honest, or lovingly truthful, one thing is certain: the originality and creativity of his timeless performances shines through to every listener.

Concert: The Marigolds, Oct. 3

marigolds.jpgThe Marigolds are three great solo artists who share a love of good songs, beautiful harmonies and great grooves. Caitlin Hanford and Gwen Swick (both of Quartette) and Suzie Vinnick (of Betty & the Bobs, Vinnick, Sheppard and Harte, Suzie and Rick Fines) are as impressive as their combined years in the business. Saturday, October 3. Doors open 8:00, Concert at 8:30, $18 advance / $20 door.  The Pearl Company, 16 Steven Street, Hamilton. Call 905-524-0606. (more…)
