Forbidden plays Zocalo on Friday

Jazz trio gives evening performance at downtown Courtenay venue

The Forbidden Jazz Trio returns to Zocalo Café for an evening performance this Friday.

Comprised of Jake Masri on trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals; Mike Eddy on keyboards and Don MacKay on bass, they strive to reach audiences of all ages.

Eddy joins the trio for this special appearance. He is new to the Valley and has had the opportunity to play with many fantastic musicians over the past year, including those in the Lensmen and Jazztet. His music degree in classical piano performance has greatly enhanced his love for jazz.

• MacKay moved to the Valley after 30 years of performing, directing, writing, and teaching music in Victoria. During his tenure there he played with nearly everyone in the local jazz scene.

He is an avid supporter of the local jazz scene and an active board member of the Georgia Straight Jazz Society.

• No stranger to the local music scene, Masri draws his inspiration from classical repertoire to musical theatre to Afro-Cuban/New Orleans, and bebop styles.

Music commences Friday at 7:30 p.m. and admission is by donation.

For more information, contact Zocalo Café and Gallery at 250-331-0933, visit www.zocalocafe.ca. or simply drop by the corner of Fifth Street and Cliffe Avenue in downtown Courtenay.
