Jazz is back at Resto Gare! Starting June 25th and continuing each Thursday evening through August 27th, “Jazz at the Station” returns for its 13th season! The emphasis this summer will be on the singers, as we feature a selection of Winnipeg’s finest vocal talent!
Before the singers take over, we’ll be getting underway on June 25th with the mainstream jazz sounds of Brian Chipney and his soprano saxophone. Don Kissick will be joining Brian on piano.
As promised, as we roll into July the vocalists will hold center stage! On the 2nd Grace Hrabi returns to Resto Gare as part of Jesse and Grace. It’s an eclectic duo featuring the vocal harmonies of Grace and her partner Jesse Popeski.
July 9th brings one of your favorites back to Resto Gare as Helen White joins us. Not only a great singer, Helen is also one of the most entertaining characters on Winnipeg’s jazz scene. A good time is guranteed for all!
Another Resto Gare favorite will be along on July 16th. Rosemarie Todaschuk will you take you on a “sentimental journey” with great jazz standards and show tunes.
Brian Chipney is back once again on July 23rd. It will be an evening of bop, ballads, bossas and blues, all delivered with an accent on swing by Brian and Don Kissick.
We round out July with a “Jazz at the Station” debut as we welcome Gen + Tonic to our stage! The brother and sister duo of Genevieve and Pierre Freynet brings you an evening of guitar and vocals with influences from the jazz, blues, soul and folk idioms.
The music gets underway at 6:30 each Thursday and continues until 8:30. We’ll be out on the glorious Resto Gare patio at every opportunity, but when the elements conspire against us the music will move into our dining room. Rest assured that social distancing and other Covid protocols will be in place for your safety. Reservations aren’t a requirement, but we do suggest them, particularly this season. Call us at 204-237-7072 to reserve your table or to get further information. Always plenty of free parking next to our historic train car.
