Funky Fall Season Underway at Vernon Jazz Club – Vernon Morning Star

The Vernon Jazz Club is picking up its pace.

The Vernon Jazz Society presents its 23rd season of live music by renowned local, national and international artists.

The company’s fall season kicked off Sept. 10 with the Dan Brubeck Trio — the first of nine shows this season.

Upcoming shows include the jazz of David Buchbinder, the sublime guitar of James Brown and the jazz/pop voice of KINGA. December brings the New Year with a fan favorite, Sherman ‘TANK’ Doucette, with his instantly recognizable blues harp style and dance party music.

On September 24, club patrons will be able to see Toronto band Los Variants, with their rule-breaking music, Juno-nominated/winning musicians, and spectacular performances that explore connections between musical and cultural milieus around the world. The five-piece band has a repertoire that includes world jazz, latin, funk, afro, blues and reggae, and boasts some of Canada’s finest musicians with Andrew McCansh on trumpet, Michael Occhipinti on guitar, Luis Orbegoso on percussion, Jonathon Amador on bass and Vince Maccarone on drums.

Tickets and more information are available at vernonjazz.com. The show starts at 8 p.m. and doors open at 7:15 p.m.

The volunteer-run Vernon Jazz Society has been bringing all forms of jazz to the city since 1999.
