What are you doing New Year’s Eve?

17 December 2013

Come ring in the new year at Brantford’s beautiful restaurant Bistro 515, where I’ll be performing jazz with the wonderful Jeff Daniels on keys. Enjoy some delicious food in a beautifully intimate setting! We’ll be including some holiday favourites on the program!

Hope to see you there! Call 519-304-8555 to make a reservation! We’ll be performing from 7-10pm.

Registry Theatre concert!

10 December 2013

Any jazz fans in your family? Give the gift of music this Christmas! I’ve just learned that tickets for my January 25 Registry Theatre show with vocalist Tim Louis and Mike Grace (bass/sax) are now on sale ($20) at the Centre in the Square box office! This show will be a very intimate evening, as we celebrate and honour the artists that have inspired and influenced us, some of whom Mike has played with! Come hear some great duet arrangements of the standards, Tim performing some of his amazing original compositions, and I’ll be paying tribute to some of my fave ladies of song (Judy Garland, Eydie Gorme, Rosemary Clooney), performing my interpretation of their signature tunes with Mike accompanying me on the bass. This really will be a “One Night Only” event, and I am so excited that this concert is going to happen! Get your tickets now, for you and yours, this holiday season!
