Anela and the Experimenters this week's Jazz Society concert

The Georgia Strait Jazz Society returns to its Comox Valley roots this week, with a return engagement of Anela and The Experimenters, Thursday, Nov. 19 at The Avalanche Bar and Grill.

A native of Hawaii and veteran of the Honolulu music scene; Anela Kahiamoe’s  popularity in the Valley is phenomenal and his musical talent extensive. This is Anela’s second appearance as a Jazz Society act; last year’s show drew a capacity crowd.

“We are happy to bring back his extensive musical talent as he offers beautiful vocals, and performs in his inimitable style on guitar and lap steel ukulele,” said GSJS preident Malcolm Holt. “Expect an engaging performance with beautiful vocals combined with his amazing instrumental skills.”

For Thursday’s performance, Anela has selected a broad range of popular jazz standards, blues, and self-penned originals.

“The unique blend of instruments and range of musical genres being performed will be very engaging,” he said.

The five-piece band The Experimenters includes four time CCMA-nominated Evan Ehgoetz, who masterfully blends his sweet steel pedal guitar sound to jazz favourites. Ehgoetz has shared the stage with the likes of Conway Twitty, Bill Anderson and Allan Jackson. On keyboard and occasional vocals is well-known and highly talented Ralph Barrat. Highly skilled and creative Grahame Edwards plays stand-up and electric bass is, and Rob Peterson, on drums, rounds out the rhythm section.

Show time is 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10 for Society members, $12 for non-members.

Jazz Society members are reminded to mark their calendar for the AGM at the Avalanche Bar, Dec. 5 at 5:30 p.m.
