Not Quite a Jazz Gig

Got an unusual (for us) booking at the Army, Navy & Air force veterans of Canada (ANAVETS) club here in Winnipeg. A friend of mine from Church is booking the club. Now typically the groups they have there are bigger and louder, but he is putting in a wide variety. Good on him.

We wove in some classic rock, soul, country, pop, etc. songs into our jazz mainstays for this January 18th gig. With the help of technology in the form of live looping, we are able to give a full band type of sound to all the material.

Jazz and Pop at the Legion in Winnipeg

So with the music of Cole Porter, Gershwin, Sinatra, Ella, etc. we folded in the music of The Eagles, The Bee Gees, Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, Cindy Lauper.

I will tell you it was one of the coldest nights in the middle of a terrible cold snap.

I used 3 guitars for this gig as the stage is large and I wanted to add variety to the sound.
