The Harvey Paris Quintet returns to The Avalanche.

Paris returns to the Comox Valley

Georgia Straight Jazz Society presents the Harvey Paris Quintet

Georgia Straight Jazz Society continues its exciting 2016 calendar with a return performance by Harvey Paris Quintet, in response to the terrific demand for a second performance following their show last autumn.

This is your opportunity to listen to this highly talented up-and-coming group of young musicians whose generation carries the beacon for live jazz into the future, and offers you the chance to hear how jazz, as a modern art genre, is evolving.

The quintet comprises Harvey Paris, vocals; Phil Hamelin, keyboard; Mikey Clement, guitar; Andrew Fraser, bass, and Jesse McNeil on drums. All dedicated ambassadors, committed to elevating jazz to another level.

Harvey Paris blends jazz and hip hop in a personal style, creating a neo soul fusion that is really too good to be missed. The band plays with inspired influences from Robert Glasper, Esperanza Spalding, The Roots, Eryka Badu, Amy Winehouse and the late great J Dilla.

Harvey Paris delivers a musical vibe like no other. His group mixes the sound of Fender Rhodes, mixed with pocket drums, sparse guitar and groove bass to create a soul foundation for his melodic vocals.

Show time is 7:30 at The Avalanche Bar and Grill on Eighth Street. Admission is $10 for members, $12 for non members.
