There’s an old joke in Winnipeg that we only have two seasons…winter and construction. Live here long enough and you get the joke. Well, I’d like to propose adding one more season to that list ……..

Yes, it’s jazz season again at Resto Gare! Starting in May and continuing right through to November [assuming that Old Man Covid doesn’t cause another unwelcome interruption!] we’ll be presenting the
finest musicians in Winnipeg, playing for you as part of our “Jazz at the Station” series. We’ll have many of your favorites from previous seasons back again. We’ll also be presenting several excellent
performers making their Resto Gare debuts. After the abbreviated seasons of the past two years, we’re looking forward to getting back to business as usual, with a jazz lineup that’s jam-packed with exciting talent!!

We’ll get underway on May 12th with the Brian Chipney Duo. In addition to being a fine soprano saxophone player and singer of songs, Brian is also the Musical Director of “Jazz at the Station”. His groups alway put the emphasis on the swinging sounds of mainstream jazz. On this first outing of the season Brian will be joined by an exciting new talent, pianist Evan Miles!

On May 19th a wonderful vocalist will make her Resto Gare debut! Erin Propp will be with us, accompanied by the outstanding guitarist Larry Roy.

We conclude the May portion of our schedule on the 26th as saxophonist Janice Finlay will be joining us. Janice is well known to Winnipeg audiences as a talented and versatile player. It’s always a treat to
have her at Resto Gare!

The music in May begins each Thursday (starting May 12th) from 6:30 to 8:30. This time of year is unpredictable weather-wise. We’ll be out on the patio as soon as possible, but on cool or rainy nights when that isn’t an option the music moves inside to our elegant dining room.
Reservations aren’t required, but we do suggest them! Call 204-237-7072 for more information or to reserve your table. And of course, we always have plenty of free parking next to our historic Train Car! Join us for great food and great music, Thursdays at Resto Gare!

Planning small intimate weddings is one of our specialties.
