Forsland and group on Elks’ stage

This Thursday is your chance to enjoy the new faces in the Jenn Forsland Group from a first-class seat at the Elks’ hall.

This Thursday is your chance to enjoy the new faces in the Jenn Forsland Group from a first-class seat at the Elks’ hall.

In recent months, the Jenn Forsland Group has undergone some exciting changes in its lineup.

Ralph Barrat has forfeited the keyboard to Sean Mooney. Well-known bassist Al West has also retired from JFG and been replaced by Grahame Edwards.

“Both Sean and Grahame fit seamlessly into the group and honour the JFG’s tradition of mutual respect for all contributing players,” Forsland says.

Other well-known regular musicians in the group are Rick Husband, guitar; Rob Peterson, drums; and Tony Morrison on flute, alto and tenor saxes.

“We will have the pleasure of inviting Ralph up to join us for one tune so that we can sing at least one duet together, for as you know, the gig wouldn’t be the same without my favourite Sinatra-esque partner.”

“For this show we have made a real effort to switch up the configuration of the instrumentation for the new tunes,” Forsland adds. “This will provide interest and diversity within each set and give each player an opportunity to be featured in a different way. The evening will be filled with pleasant surprises for anyone who has heard our group in the past and we are confident it will be a great night.”

Music begins at 7:30 p.m. and is by donation. Further information about the group can be found at jennforsland.com.

The Elks’ hall is at 231 Sixth St. (across from the Atlas Café). For more information, phone 250-334-2512.
