Once again Centre 64 is offering their 2014 Fall Jazz Series consisting of three different and entertaining groups.

This third Fall Series of Jazz will kick off on Friday, Sept. 26 at 8:00 p.m.  The Neville Bowman trio from Kelowna will be joined by Kinga Hemming, a renowned Toronto vocalist who has just moved to Kelowna.  Her innovative renditions of jazz classics will be accompanied by Neville on grand piano and a guitar and bassist.

The cabaret venue will be held in the intimate setting of the dance studio with a beer and wine bar available.

The second concert in the series will also take place in the dance studio on Saturday, Nov. 1 .  The Melody Diachun Quartet from Nelson will be making their first visit to Kimberley. Melody is a Juno and National Jazz Awards nominee and we are excited to host her and her group in Kimberley.

The last concert will take place in the theater and feature Verisimo, a Calgary based group.  This bop style instrumental group made up of two tenor saxes, bass, guitar and drums is sure to generate lots of excitement.
