Juno and national Jazz Awards nominated vocalist Melody Diachun makes her first Kimberley appearance at Centre 64, presenting an evening of grooving originals, choice standards, and tasteful takes on much loved pop songs with ”that friendliness that makes listening a relaxing, joyous occasion”. (Yorkton This Week) A warm and sincere performer, Melody has been hailed as “a jazz singer of the first order”.(Joseph Blake, Times Colonist). Melody says that “one of the biggest compliments I get is when people tell me they don’t like jazz, but they really like what I do. I call it “gateway jazz”. Melody’s wish for a life in music has taken her from Nova Scotia, to Montreal, to Vancouver, with stints in New York and Banff in between. Today, she and her husband, guitarist-bassist and “musical accomplice” Doug Stephenson live and play in Nelson, British Columbia, where Melody was hired on to teach singing and songwriting at Selkirk College’s Contemporary Music & Technology program. They will be joined in Kimberley by Mark Spielman on bass and Tony Ferraro on drums.
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Melody and her outstanding band on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at 8:00 pm in cabaret venue at Center 64’s Dance Studio. Wine and beer will be available.
Tickets are available at Centre 64 or online at eventbrite.ca
