Georgia Straight Jazz Society wraps up with Susannah Adams and Edie Laponte concert

Georgia Straight Jazz Society closes its 2018-19 season with a ticketed concert this Thursday evening, May 30, at 7:30 at The Avalanche Bar & Grill.

Two of Vancouver Island’s greatest songstresses, Susannah Adams and Edie Daponte are presenting a duo performance, accompanied by a sensational trio comprising Tony Genge on organ, Joey Smith on guitar and double bass, and Graham Villette on drums. We have been promised an unforgettable show. Given that each of these singers have already achieved that in their own names, we can only speculate what the dynamic of them performing together will accomplish, but it will be spectacular; perhaps everything from Edith Piaf to Ella Fitzgerald.

A limited number of tickets are still available from Bop City. These are sold on a cash basis: $21 for members, $26 for non-members. If you want to experience this memorable concert, don’t delay.

Please visit and select the calendar tab to see the line-up of performances already booked for the 2019-20 season commencing in September. As well, make a note of two summer music events on the new stage at The Gardens on Anderton: July 20, when the Jazz Society will jointly host the CYMC graduating concert from this year’s summer camp, and August 11 when La Familia will be performing an exciting Latin American concert. More information on these events will be published closer to time.
