Doors 6pm Show 8pm
The Hugh Parsons Quintet (2018 edition) featuring vocalist Danielle Evjen has cooked up a great recipe for Okanagan audiences with a new show which features the compositions of Burt Bacharach. All of the music has been given a jazz treatment such as Diana Krall performs Bacharach’s, the Look of Love. “Music with such fresh harmonies and interesting melodies is ripe for this kind of jazz arranging”, says keyboardist, Hugh Parsons. Fronting the group is the Okanagan’s own Danielle Evjen who is both a vocalist and keyboardist. Hugh Parsons, on piano, is another featured ingredient in the mix. The band also features Michael Perkins on trumpet and Flugelhorn, Stefan Bienz on upright bass, and Danny Sameshima on percussion.
