Silk Pajamas coming to the Zocalo

A NEW LINEUP of silk Pajamas performs this Saturday at Zocalo Café.

The Silk PJs have been a popular additional to the local music for the past five years.

Founding members Danny Bereza on guitar and Ian Parson on the flugelhorn got together to play old standards, and a mix of blues and country music. Over the years, they have developed a strong and loyal fan base to whom they are appreciative and hugely grateful.

Ian recently decided to give the ‘bone’ a hiatus. He has taken a side step away from the PJs for a while and they look forward to welcoming him back when his well-worn lips have had a rest.

Bereza and vocalist Ann Johnstone will be joined Saturday by excellent musicians Alain Gourdeau on acoustic bass and Philip Nowé on keyboard.

Alain studied classical and jazz guitar with world-class teachers and participated in jazz workshops in Canada and the USA. He has been playing piano, guitar and bass for 40 years and is enjoying retirement in the beautiful Comox Valley and getting involved with the music community – lucky for Silk Pajamas!

Philip has studied classical piano with Edward Parker, one of the best teachers in B.C. The jazz influence came from performer/teacher, Bob Murphy. Philip has played professionally for many years. He performs a wide variety of styles, switching easily from jazz to boomer music.
