Indigo Jazz continues playing First Fridays at the Zo!

Dale Graham (vocals), Rick Husband (guitar) and Grahame Edwards (bass) play jazz with warmth, humour and just-right feel. Catch them at the Zocalo Café at the corner of Fifth Street and Cliffe Avenue this Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Graham developed her singing chops through work in the Celtic/folk scene in the 1990s, but her supple and fluid vocals really find their groove in the jazz genre. She’s right at home in the open space of a ballad, can swing like crazy and simply relaxes into her improvised lines.

Husband is a compelling guitarist, highly responsive to his fellow players. He also communicates beautifully to his listeners by integrating improvised lines with familiar motifs and genres. He has performed extensively across Vancouver Island, in big bands, small combos and everything in between.

Edwards has been a feature of the local jazz scene since his days with Uncle Harry’s Wire Choir. He performs regularly with the Anderson Jazz Syndicate, the Wire Choir and Jenn Forsland.  Husband and Graham are happy to have Edwards join them this Friday at the Zo.

The Zocalo Café is licensed and offers hearty meals and mouth-watering desserts to add to your musical experience. Get your weekend off to a swinging start with Indigo Jazz this Friday at 7:30 p.m. Admission is by donation.
