Regular jazz aficionados know Monik Nordine’s superb tenor sax style. Most certainly one of BCs finest musicians in her field, she will be accompanied by David Emery, drums; Trevor Short, bass, and Rob Cheramy on guitar. These wonderful Victoria-based musicians will be performing “The Great Canadian Songbook” as the northernmost part of their Vancouver Island tour when they take the Stage at Avalanche Bar & Grill at 7:30 pm, March 19.

Monik said, “It will be a most intimate evening of music. I’m really looking forward to presenting my personal interpretation of some of our country’s greatest compositions. It will be my pleasure to offer my instrumental and vocal music to an audience that is sophisticated and loves jazz.”

This will be an easy-going evening of contemporary jazz in a lovely lounge setting, so come down and enjoy the wonderful friendly, sociable atmosphere at Thursday Night Jazz at The Av. Admission is $10 for members, $12 for non-members.
