Other Upcoming Shows

Stephanie Pedraza

Get ready Vernon… Stephanie Pedraza Quartet is back this Spring at the Vernon Jazz Club by popular demand. This will be a night filled with Latin grooves and lots of fun and dancing.

Poppa Dawg

Hailing from the 'Left Coast' of Canada, Rick “Poppa Dawg” Halisheff and his band present the Blues with a unique, tongue-in-cheek view and a deep and respectful appreciation of the music. The band's sound moves from the slinky grooves of New Orleans to the down and dirty rawness of Chicago and all points in-between. Gritty and dynamic, they take the music from rushing peaks to hushing lows, and then Poppa Dawg steps back from the mic to spread the news.

Mike Allen

Spare, elegant, melodic, soaring, fierce - Vancouver's Mike Allen has arrived as the country's top jazz saxophonist.  Echoes of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Joe Lovano resonate through Allen's work, but the Vancouver-based saxman has channeled them into a voice of his own, by turns soulful, intense, lush and dynamic. -Doug Fischer, Ottawa Citizen

Karen Wiseman

Audiences can expect old swing classics, soulful ballads, Latin jazz, and re-imagined Broadway and pop tunes, all delivered with subtlety and elegant arrangements.

Justin Glibbery Quintet

From the south end of Okanagan Lake comes the sweet yet vibrant sound of Penticton's popular jazz players. Enjoy a particularly lyrical melody encompassing a solid harmonic and rhythmic foundation with a few twists and turns.

John Stetch and the Gatsby Trio
