A Valentine’s Tribute to Broadway at Pat’s House of Jazz
February 11, 2018 @ 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Indulge in a little romance with your favorite songs from The Wizard of Oz, Showboat, Phantom of the Opera, Guys & Dolls, Oklahoma, My Fair Lady, Fiddler on the Roof and more — all sprinkled with humourous tales of Christie’s life as a young boy soprano in Winnipeg.
The show, which garnered great reviews at a sold-out show at The Roxy on Gabriola Island, was put together by Gabriola’s Roger Christie and Nanaimo’s versatile keyboardist Marty Steele.
“Think Woody Allen’s Radio Days,” says Steele, a talented musical leader/arranger and keyboardist, who will be joined by Larry Miller on woodwinds. “Together we can create a full orchestral sound.”
Vancouver vocalist Jenny Morgan rounds out the group as Christie’s duet partner.
Steele says their aim is to honour Broadway musicals that contributed so much to the jazz tradition.
“Many of the songs in the jazz musician’s Real Book started as Broadway musical numbers that were adapted by jazz musicians in their off hour,” says Steele.
Reservations are recommended for this show. Tables held until 30 minutes before showtime.
