Jazztet is reassembling this Sunday at the Griffin Pub in Comox. The band went in a few different directions in early December, and is looking forward to getting back to their weekly gig that’s been ongoing for more than two and a half years.
Saxophonist Mike Schwarz kept the playing going at the Griffin with fantastic guest players for four months.
Guitarist John Ringstead was on hiatus in Mexico and elsewhere on Vancouver Island. Drummer Bill Street, bassman Don MacKay, and keyboard/vocalist Ralph Barrat had three successful months in Mexico, called themselves Déjà Blue, and played as a trio for five nights a week at various restaurants in Bucerias near Puerto Vallarta.
Much music has been flowing for all the band and they are primed for a great show Sunday. So come to the Griffin Pub (by CFB Comox) every Sunday from 5 to 9 p.m. for great jazz with Jazztet.
