Kaslo Jazz Etc. 22nd Annual Summer Music Festival swings into Kaslo Bay this weekend

Kaslo Jazz Etc. 22nd Annual Summer Music Festival swings into Kaslo Bay this weekend with the Mickey Hart Band and the African Showboyz, the Dan Brubeck Band, Paul Peress and many other spectacular performers.

Mickey Hart and crew are including Kaslo in their 2013 Worlds Within tour schedule. Their show opens with the African Showboyz, who join the Mickey Hart band for over three hours of continuous groove, blending old-style jam band with world-beat percussion, seven vocalists, live loops and sound effects.

Dan Brubeck brings a quartet to showcase songs by Dave Brubeck that include Dave’s lyrics being sung by bassist, Adam Thomas. Dan explains, “The music I am presenting at Kaslo will have even greater significance to me, in that I will present it the way my Dad conceived it, but was seldom performed, namely, with vocals. This will be a rare thing that has special meaning to me. I look forward to it.” Dan’s older brother, Matt Brubeck also plays the festival as part of the Stretch Orchestra, which includes Kevin Breit and Jesse Stewart.

Brandi Disterheft is a Vancouver native currently working in New York City. She is also a singer and bassist who has studied and collaborated with some of the bass playing giants of jazz, including Ron Carter, Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen and Don Thompson. Oscar Peterson compares her to Ray Brown and considers her a serious player.

Shakura S’Aida brings her award winning, white-hot R&B band from Toronto. Tiempo Libre, from Cuba, Delhi 2 Dublin and the Sultans of String provide a variety of danceable beats and world-class musicianship.

Kootenay based performers include the Clinton Swanson Blues Band, Melody Diachun, the Selkirk Trio, the Jan Van Gold Band, Eric and Shauna, Approaching Normal and the Funky Plucks.

Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival tickets are available at the gate. Tickets for Friday night are $38 for adults or $18 for youth (ages 13 to 17). For Saturday or Sunday, tickets are $75 per day for adults and $28 per day for youth.
