WELCOME TO THE 18TH ANNUAL
PENDER HARBOUR JAZZ FESTIVAL!
SEPTEMBER 19, 20 & 21, 2014

TICKETS AVAILABLE ONLY ON THIS WEBSITE

Once again, we have a line-up of world class musicians playing fabulous jazz in different styles, from Afro-Cuban to Bebop to Swing. Our indoor and alfresco venues are scattered around Pender Harbour and most of the events are free. All but one venue is accessible by water, and our trusty water-taxi, the Slo-Cat, will be shuttling folks between those venues throughout the Festival, weather permitting, at only $5.00 per ride.

PHJAZZ-2014

JAZZAPALOOZAS are back Saturday and Sunday afternoons with four hours of jazz each afternoon for the ridiculously low price of $25 each day. Children under 12 are free.

SATURDAY JAZZAPALOOZA features our Big Band from Cuba, Wil Campa y su Orquestra; The Laura Crema Quartet and PK3.

SUNDAY JAZZAPALOOZA features Ben Henriques; Dan Brubeck Quartet and the Arntzens: Three Generations of Jazz.

We are delighted to be able to bring in a jazz icon for the second year in a row to headline the Festival at the School of Music. The George Cables Trio will be in the house. Pianist Cables was in the Dexter Gordon Quartet and played and recorded with many Jazz Giants including Sonny Rollins, Art Pepper, Joe Henderson, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Sarah Vaughn and more. He is travelling from New York City for the Festival with his drummer Victor Lewis, and will be joined by Vancouver bassist Adam Thomas. Sensitive, lyrical, intimate, his music connects to his audience, heart to heart.

Check out all of our musicians here.

Please note: in consideration of the musicians and audience members, all Festival venues are smoke & fragrance free.
