Wanted: players or already formed groups (or partially formed groups) to participate in low volume 2-hour early evening Wednesday performances of instrumental/ vocal jazz /jazzy music at Good Earth Coffee (Foul Bay and Oak Bay Avenue).
Myself and some musician friends recently approached the Management at GE Coffee to suggest Jazz Wednesdays (evening) there to play some Jazz/ Jazzy stuff for fun and , hopefully, to start a bit of a regular Jazz scene in the neighborhood. We are hoping to meet other players (or groups) and to facilitate jazz players getting to know each other to play together in various combos. This is NOT an "open stage' situation as exists on "open stage night" in some coffee houses or pubs around town. It's about groups and/or players invited , in advance, to play scheduled performances. The Coffee House Management is not involved in this process. They have authorized us to handle coordinating of interested players/groups for Wednesday performances.
Scheduled groups can bring their "Band Tips Jar" for audience donations but the main focus is having fun and establishing musical community in a friendly atmosphere with nice, appreciative "coffee friends".
In order to grow this regular "happening", we welcome jazz players with musical training and established skills and experience.
If you are interested in participating, please e-mail me or call me at (cell) 780-945-9712 to discuss further.
Thanks for your interest Freddy Brown
