Jazz Night May 23rd


Exciting jazz music returns to The Avalanche stage this Thursday at 7:30pm, when Ken Lister, Chad Geekie and Aaron Amar come together for the first time this Thursday to form a Dream Trio that should not be missed. The unique collaboration of these three well-known and highly adept musicians promises a listening experience that will be hard to beat on Vancouver Island or abroad, and provides an exemplary foundation for the quintet’s performance.

Two sets this Thursday will feature a refreshing balance of Traditional and modern standards.

Ken Lister, bass, has been a professional jazz bassist since 1983, winning accolades and Juno awards along the way. He currently performs and teaches in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island and has toured across Canada and internationally to Australia, the British Isles, Cuba and South America. As a member of the Phil Dwyer Orchestra, Ken won a Juno Award for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year, 2012; with the Hugh Fraser Quintet, the Juno Award for the Best Mainstream Jazz Album of 1997.
