The Revelstoke Jazz Club is hosting local band The Groovineers on Mar. 15.
The Groovineers are a Revelstoke-based group rooted in jazz but combining mixing it up with blues, rock and jazz styles.
The band has played in Revelstoke for a number of years in various forms of jazz-based groups. The members are Darcy Purcell on guitar, Matt Yaki on drums, Dave Marfleet on bass, Carl Laurence on trombone/vocals and Ron Butler on trumpet.
They are a dynamic group of players, covering a wide range of music. Matt and Dave come from the jazz program at Humber College in Toronto and have established themselves as a fine rhythm team, combining well with Darcy’s mostly self-taught approach to guitar.
The audience is sure enjoy their sonic journey through the musical spectrum – there is something for everyone, from classics, standards with a twist to new school funk driven jazz.
The Jazz Club is located in the Selkirk Room at the Regent Hotel. Admission is by donation and doors open at 7 p.m. Music runs from 7:30–9:30 p.m. and food and bar service is available.
