Friday, May 12, 2017



Vancouver-based recording artists Kristian Alexandrov and Shannon Gaye present an evening of melodic, groove-driven original material steeped in Jazz, Soul and R&B tradition with a fiery approach to improvisation.


Winner of the 2008 Canadian Smooth Jazz Award for Best Pianist, Kristian has worked alongside some tremendous Canadian and international artists, including:  Jens Lindemann, Wycliffe Gordon, Thomas Lang, Allen Vizzutti, Randy Brecker, Eric Marienthal, kd Lang and the Order of Canada Big Band.  Described as “the slender singer with the big, soulful voice, the kind that knocks you for a loop”, singer/percussionist Shannon Gaye has performed at festivals across the country and has completed fifteen cross-Canada tours with songs featured in TV series and films in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K.


Joined by longtime friends and colleagues Tyler Hornby (drums) and Jeremy Coates (bass), the quartet will perform material from Kristian and Shannon’s latest CD’s.
