Jazz At the Station
Summertime, and the living is easy. Well, it is if you have an air conditioner! We hope you’re enjoying the warm weather as we swing into high summer. For the most part we’ve been out on the patio of late with our “Jazz at the Station” series. What a treat it is to hear Winnipeg’s finest jazz musicians in this fabulous space! Our schedule in July promises more outstanding jazz for your listening pleasure!!
On July 4th we’ll feature the Brian Chipney Trio. Brian is the producer of the “Jazz at the Station” series and is a fine soprano saxophone player. With guitarist Tim Cummings taking a break, Brian will be joined by Don Kissick on piano and Steve Hamilton on bass for an evening of swinging mainstream jazz.
An old friend will be back at Resto Gare on the 11th as we welcome saxophonist Paul Balcain to our series once again! We haven’t seen Paul for a few years, so it will be a treat to have him at Resto Gare this summer. Paul has been working a lot with the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra of late and is really playing well. We’re looking forward to hearing him in an intimate trio setting.
Rosemarie Todaschuk will be featured on July 18th. Rosemarie is a great singer and is a true favorite with Winnipeg jazz fans. We’re fans too, so we’re excited to have Rosemarie taking part in “Jazz at the Station” once again!
July wraps up on the 25th with another visit from Brian Chipney, Don Kissick and Steve Hamilton, the Brian Chipney Trio. When these gentlemen get together you’ll hear jazz standards, show tunes, originals and blues, not to mention a touch of Ellington! If you like your jazz to be light and swinging, you’ll enjoy the BC3!
And there’s another month of excellent jazz for you! The best musicians in Winnipeg are featured each Thursday at Resto Gare, 6:30 to 8:30. If the weather decides not to co-operate the music moves into our elegant dining room, but we’ll be out on the patio every chance we get! You don’t need a reservation, but it never hurts to have one! Please call 204-237-7072 to reserve your table or to get further information. Lots of free parking next to our historic Train Car! We hope you’ll join us every Thursday for great food and great music with Resto Gare’s “Jazz at the Station”!July 4 – Brian Chipney
