The dynamic duo of Jim Chew and Ralph Barrat will entertain at the Zocalo Café this Friday.
Jim and Ralph have played many times together this past year in duos, trios, and quartets and enjoy covering the great jazz standards from Sinatra, Ella, Duke, and many more.
Jim has been playing all styles of guitar for over 35 years and before moving to Campbell River, he was playing and teaching in the jazz program at Mount Royal College in Calgary. Incredibly inventive, his rhythm and solos are the perfect complement to Ralph’s singing.
Ralph has been singing with many jazz groups over the years here and abroad including the Georgia Strait Big Band and is accompanied by his own sensitive and rhythmic keyboard (piano, organ, vibes) playing, which complements Jim’s masterful solos.
Enjoy a drink or a bite with Chew and Barrat this Friday from 7:30 till 9:30. Admission by donation. More info at ralphbarrat.com.
