Jazz and Halloween at Joe’s

SINGER JILLI MARTINI is performing again in the Comox Valley with a date reserved this Saturday night for a Halloween costume party at Joe's Garage.

You may have caught a Jilli Martini Show at a number of local venues over the past few years.

Jill has performed a broad range of styles and genres, accompanied by several accomplished musicians. Her gigs have ranged from piano lounge style, to bluesy easy listening trio and quartet groups and also the full rock band thing.

She hosted the acoustic jam at the ‘late’ Pier Pub for a couple of  years. Jill has appeared often at the Jazz Club at the Elks, all of the local pubs, cafés, many charity events and Fall Fairs, as well as private functions.

Some of you out there may have been wondering, “Where has Ms. Martini gone?!”

Simply put, Jill stepped back and spent this past year to regroup on the music front and also to focus on some other priorities.

Well! The Jilli Martini Band is now ready and back to play for the first time since last New Year’s Eve.

This Saturday night, Jill will host the Halloween costume party at Joe’s Garage. After a few, recent out of town gigs, the band is excited to play here at home, and reunite with friends and fans for an intimate party atmosphere.

The Jilli Martini Band currently consists of the following five members: Jilli Martini (aka Jill Gathright) on vocals, Peter Cloud Panjoyah also on vocals, Doug Biggs on guitar, Andre Forgues on bass and Blair Bentley on drums.

The Jilli Martini Band is pleased to be playing together and having a lot of fun doing so, and looks forward to entertaining you.

Doors open for the party at 8:30, with music from 9 to 12:30.

Costumes are definitely encouraged and fine prizes will be awarded. Complimentary munchies will be provided, and lots of fun dance music for your sheer entertainment.

Tickets are $15 at Bop City or e-mail gigs@jillimartini.com to reserve. Tickets are limited.
