The Garden City Electronic Music Society presents
THE ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC SONIC JAZZ SHOWCASE:
Explorations of Electronics in Jazz and Improvisational Music
Sonic Jazz will feature a trio of Vancouver jazz heavyweights, featuring JP CARTER of the band Destroyer on trumpet, and 2018 Juno Award Winner KENTON LOEWEN (Peregrine Falls) on percussion, and James Meger (Braveheart, Dark Blue World).
Also playing are Victoria’s THELEMA BANANA, who performed at last year’s Sonic Jazz Showcase on the September long weekend.
Electro-Acoustic is a series of summer events and small festival at the beginning of March which explores the use of electronics in the traditionally acoustic genres of jazz, folk and world music.
Our summer events take place on the Mondays of the July and August long weekends at the Sidney Waterfront Pavillion at the eastern end of Beacon Avenue in Sidney BC. Please be mindful of the CRD prohibition on smoking in public parks. This event is an all-ages event and participants are welcome to enjoy the music over a picnic lunch, but please pack-it-in, pack-it-out!
This event is supported by grant funding from the BC Arts Council and the Capital Regional District, and special supports from Long & McQuade Victoria and Metropol Industries.
