Tickets for this show are no longer available through Tickets Please but may be purchased at the door 30 minutes before showtime (subject to availability).
Greg Runions (vibes) and Dave Barton (guitar) are well respected members of the Kingston jazz music scene who have collaborated extensively as musicians and composers for several decades. They will be joined by Michael Broadhead on bass, a very busy Kingston musician in his own right. Together they will bring an accessible mix of instrumental jazz to the schoolhouse built around Greg and Dave’s original compositions combined with a selection of classic standards that are associated with the popular vibraphone artists of the past. Look for standards as played by the Red Norvo Trio (Night and Day/Have You Met Miss Jones), Gary Burton (The Night Has a Thousand Eyes/My Funny Valentine), Milt Jackson (Bag’s Groove/Body and Soul), the Modern Jazz Quartet (Django/Softly), Terry Gibbs (Memories of You/After You’ve Gone), Victor Feldman (Seven Steps to Heaven/I Fall in Love Too Easily) and Lionel Hampton (Moonglow/On the Sunny Side of the Street).
