The MIKE ALLEN TRIO - June 18th. 

We are very pleased to announce that Mike Allen will be bringing his trio to Nanaimo, June 18th, 7:30pm at the Simonholt Restaurant (North Nanaimo. BC).

Mike is one of Canada's, indeed North America's, leading saxophonists and is well matched in this trio with John Lee (bass) and the great Dave Robbins (drums).

From his website: "Since founding his record label ALMUS JAZZ in 1990, Allen has produced and released 18 albums as a leader and recorded on another 25 as a sideman, including Michael Buble's Grammy Award winning Crazy Love. Allen's Dialectic (2003) won Outstanding Jazz Recording, Western Canadian Music Awards and his 2006 album Love One Another was named Canadian jazz album of the year by the Ottawa Citizen. 2019 saw the release of Just Like Magic, recorded at the iconic Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. On it, he is joined by the incomparable rhythm section duo of Peter Washington-bass and Lewis Nash-drums."

Tickets are $25.00 (students $15.00 - NIJF Subscribers $20.00) available from Simonholt (250) 933-3338, Fascinating Rhythm, Arbutus Music or online HERE
