17th Annual Pender Harbour Jazz Festival
September 20, 21 & 22, 2013
The 17th Annual Pender Harbour Jazz Festival features our broadest range of generations of performers ever. Dal Richards, who is a young 95, will lead his Orchestra on Saturday at the Jazzapalooza, and the 20 something youngsters of Jackie Treehorn will funk it up at the Grasshopper. Every age in between will be onstage, once again bringing you a wide range of jazz styles for every ear: Gypsy, Swing, Afro-Cuban, Straight Ahead, Boogie Woogie and many more.
JAZZAPALOOZAS are back Saturday and Sunday afternoons with 4 hours of jazz for a ridiculously low price.
SATURDAY JAZZAPALOOZA is Dal Richards Orchestra, Karen Graves Quartet and Sophia Perlman – all for only $20.00.
SUNDAY JAZZAPALOOZA is Rumba Calzada, Jennifer Scott & Rene Worst, QuartetEsprit, and Van Django, again all for $20.00.
Headlining this year is the legendary Harold Mabern from NYC with his Trio and Festival Favourite Cory Weeds, Saturday night at the School of Music.
Mabern has played and recorded with all the greats in his 7 decades of jazz, including Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderly and Lionel Hampton, to name a few. His mission is to preach the gospel of jazz, and his show will be a knock-out!
Al fresco and indoor events, all intimate, all connected by a short water taxi ride on the Slo-Cat. Leave your car and taxi from place to place with Captain Paul. Bring your dancing shoes, sun-hat, rain gear and blanket and come to the best little jazz festival in Canada!
