The Park Theatre will host two crowd-pleasing shows next week combining jazz and music of the ’80s.
Jazz bassist Brandi Disterheft will play Tuesday, October 30 at 8 p.m.
Still in her twenties, Disterheft’s premiere album Debut won her a 2008 Juno Award. A featured soloist with the Canada’s Pops Orchestra at age 21, Brandi began performing in her teens with her mother, a Chicago-born jazz pianist, and has since relocated to New York.
On Thursday, November 1, The Lost Fingers will perform at 8 p.m. The trio has combined their love of ’80s pop music and Django Reinhardt with their offbeat sense of humour to create their album Lost In The 80s.
Tickets for Brandi Disterheft are $18 in advance or $22 at the door, while The Lost Fingers will run you $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Both are available at JazzWinnipeg.com, by phone at (204) 989-4656 or in-person the Jazz Winnipeg office, 007-100 Arthur Street, and the Park Theatre.
