With September, Resto Gare’s “Jazz at the Station” enters its final month of the abbreviated 2021 season. But even though we’re winding down for the year, we’re far from being done! We’ve saved some of the best for the last as we feature an outstanding vocalist and three wonderful instrumentalists!!
On September 9th guitarist Ron Halldorson will be with us once again. A former member of Lenny Breau’s trio, Ron is a world-class player who would be at home on any stage anywhere. Just another example of the incredible jazz talent we have right here in Winnipeg! It’s a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with as fine a guitarist as we have in Canada …… or anywhere else!
Our house band is back “one more time” on the 16th as Chipney & Chenoa grace our stage once more. Soprano saxophonist Brian Chipney is the producer of “Jazz at the Station” and helps to make sure our schedule is packed with some of the finest jazz players anywhere in Canada. Brian will be joined by guitarist Chenoa McKelvey, one of the brightest young talents in the city, for an evening of classic swing.
Janice Finlay will be along on the 23rd to complete our September hat trick of super instrumental talent. Janice is of course a well-known figure on the jazz scene, leading several groups of her own, teaching, recording, and performing with other leading players. Ron Halldorson returns to provide Ms. FInlay with brilliant accompaniment!
“Jazz at the Station” concludes for the season on September 30th as vocalist Nadia Douglas pays us a visit. Nadia’s sultry song stylings are always a hit with audiences and will be a splendid way to bid adieu to our jazz nights for 2021!
And there you have it! The final month of what has turned out to be another outstanding season of jazz here at Resto Gare. The music gets underway at 6:00 p.m. each Thursday evening and goes through 9:00 p.m. We will naturally continue to respect all appropriate health protocols for the safety of our patrons and staff, including the requirement that proof of full vaccination status is available from all who join us. We do suggest that you make your reservations as early as possible. Call 204-237-7072 for more info and to reserve YOUR table for an evening of jazz. We’ll continue to keep the music on the patio as long as weather permits, but once the autumn chill sets in we’ll move inside to our warm and inviting dining room. And of course we have plenty of free parking next to our historic train car. Though it has been a challenge at times, we’ve enjoyed bringing you our 14th season of jazz! We hope you’ll visit us in September as we continue to blend marvelous food and outstanding music with unmatched ambience at Resto Gare!
