Jazz At the Station for October

You know, there are people who think that Resto Gare’s “Jazz at the Station” series winds up at the end of August. Not so! Our jazz series goes right into November!! The joint is gonna be jumpin’ this October as we present a selection of your favorites along with an exciting Resto Gare debut!

Janice Finlay has long been a prominent part of the Winnipeg jazz scene.

But somehow Janice has never been featured on the “Jazz at the Station” schedule. We’re going to make that right on October 3rd as Janice brings her trio to Resto Gare for the very first time! Ms. Finlay is a truly excellent saxophone player ….. you won’t want to miss her debut Resto Gare performance!

On the 10th we’ll be entertained by the Candice Tugby Duo. Candice is still a relative newcomer to the Winnipeg scene, making her mark as a vocalist as well as playing trumpet & guitar . We know you’ll appreciate sharing a tasteful evening of jazz standards with Candice!

The Brian Chipney/Don Kissick Duo will be along on the 17th, once again bringing the swinging sounds of mainstream jazz to Resto Gare. Brian [soprano saxophone] and Don [piano] enjoy playing the great tunes of composers like Ellington and Gershwin, as well as mixing in a few originals of their own.

If you enjoy the warm, inviting sounds of bossa nova, Resto Gare is the place to be on October 24th! We’ll be joined by vocalist Guylaine Maltais and her duo. Guylaine is a native of Quebec and has a true affinity for the music of Brazil.

There will be nothing scary about the October 31st performance of Sean Irvine! While ghosts and goblins prowl Winnipeg’s streets, we’ll be safe and warm listening to a fine saxophonist who has been featured with the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra.

The evenings are cool in October, so “Jazz at the Station” will move away from the patio (barring a Thursday evening weather miracle!) and into our elegant dining room for the rest of the season. There, you’ll be able to please your palate with the cuisine of new Chef Darwin Cano, classically trained in Switzerland and making exciting changes to the menu here at Resto Gare! The music happens every Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30. You can call us at 204-237-7072 to make your reservations. Always plenty of free parking next to our historic train car! Fabulous food and brilliant jazz ……. a winning combination for Resto Gare’s “Jazz at the Station”!

Private Parties

Resto Gare may be the ideal venue for your special function, group meeting, alumnae reunion, Christmas party, cocktail reception or social get-together.

Planning small intimate weddings is one of our specialties.

Various parts of the restaurant can be reserved for parties. Our train car holds 45, our dining room 90 and patio 49, but parties with special menus can be arranged for smaller groups. Your own printed menu can be offered to your guests with a choice of appetizers, salad course, entrees and desserts. We would also be happy to assist you in selecting wines for your dinner.
