Lust Life is a band that defies categorization. Equally at home playing jazz, Latin tunes, funk, blues and pop, the band is quite simply a wonderful band to listen and dance to. Led by trumpeter, Bryn Badel and featuring top island players, the band brings great energy to their performances.

Astrid Lyre Trio

2:00 p.m. | $15 (cover at door)

The Astrid Lyre Trio returns to the club for an afternoon of jazz on the edgy side. Lyre’s aggressive and rapid-fire playing style brings to mind players such as Al Dimeola and John McLaughlin. Appearing for the first time last February, the trio played two electrifying sets highlighting Lyre’s chops on guitar and those of her drummer, James McRae and bassist Alex Coleman.

Kim Greenwood Quartet

2:00 p.m. | $15 (cover at door)

Join Kim Greenwood and a wonderful array of Canada’s top musicians as they take you on a magical mystery tour of some of the Jazz and American Songbook greats of the 20th century. From Gershwin to Johnny Mercer, through fellow Hungarian Kosma, to Rogers and Hart, you will be both entertained and educated by this fascinating tour of the forgotten verse to these great songs, including the revival of some long lost gems.

Kim’s warm tone lends itself beautifully to ballads that embody the American Songbook repertoire and then she’ll turn around and rip through an uptempo jazz tune; she’s a multi-faceted performer and equally loves performing jazz, pop, classical and musical theatre. She’s an actor at heart and this comes shining through in all of her repertoire, engaging audiences at every turn.

Kim’s stellar ensemble includes Karel Roessingh on piano, Joey Smith on double bass and Kelby MacNayr on drums + special guests!
