Drummond to play with trio at Elks

Jeff is accompanied by Aaron Amar, drums, and John Hyde, bass.

Continuing on with a new year theme of small modern combos, and following last week’s memorable performance by the Bill Street Trio plus guest Rick Husband, we’re excited to have Jeff Drummond back on stage.

Jeff last appeared in September, and his return to our venue feels long overdue. He always wows his audience and this Thursday offers you the opportunity to hear just how accomplished he is as he appears in his own trio when the Georgia Straight Jazz Society presents three superb jazz musicians, with international performance credentials, on the Elks’ stage at 7:30.

Jeff is accompanied by Aaron Amar, drums, and John Hyde, bass. These people have worked across around the world: and we’re the lucky folk that reap the benefit of hearing them play on their own neighbourhood — yet one more piece of the musical legacy we’re so fortunate to enjoy in this region.

So come on down and experience live music with jazz aficionados in a warm lounge atmosphere this Thursday, when Jeff is guaranteed to entertain you with his broad musical palette and many years of experience as the he plays choice standards, contemporary jazz as well as some of his own original pieces.

Be sure not to miss some of our jazz artists! Remember: Live Jazz Lives in Comox Valley at the Elks’ on Sixth Street every Thursday evening between September and June.

For more information about Georgia Straight Jazz Society and its forthcoming events — including upcoming Sunday concerts, including the Jenn Hodge All Stars on Feb. 10, visit www.georgiastraightjazz.com or join us on Facebook.

Tickets for Jenn’s concert will be on sale on Thursday evening, and at Bop City in Courtenay, and Red Carpet (formerly Videos n’ More) in Comox.

Society members are reminded that the AGM is scheduled for Jan. 17 5:30 p.m. in the Elks’ Hall.
