Got a double shot of jazz in the next two days courtesy of current residents of the city and ex-pats who are home for the holidays.
Tonight at the Exchange, it’s Jeff McLeod and the YQR Jazz All-Stars featuring Kelly Jefferson (tenor sax), Jon McCaslin (drums), Donny Kennedy (alto sax), Andy King (trumpet) and Joel Kerr (bass). The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $20 Adults and $10 Students.
Then Thursday night, the Regina Jazz Society is hosting its annual Homecoming Concert at the Regina Inn. On the RJS website, the show’s being billed as Sam McLellan & Friends — the friends being Derek Friesen (trumpet), Carl Bray (piano), Sam Minevich (guitar), Cal Harle (drums) and McLellan (bass). The show’s at 8 p.m., with tickets $15 for RJS members, $20 for non-members and $10 for students.
Another option for tonight is a show that’s happening at Creative City Centre (1843 Hamilton St). It, too, was prompted by a holiday stay in Regina, and will see Toronto singer-songwriter Sam Cash perform with an opening set by Regina’s Erin Passmore. For more info, check out the CCC website here.
