The Coachman Pub’s tradition of live music on a Sunday afternoon continues this Sunday with Courtenay’s Indigo Jazz.

Indigo Jazz members Dale Graham (vocals) and Rick Husband (guitar) will be joined by Don Mackay on bass guitar and Neil Clarke on drums.

Mackay is bassist and director of the Strathcona Little Big Band, and Neil and Don are founding members of the exciting new jazz combo DMN & FRNZ.

Their established grooving rapport on bass and drums will create an exciting musical playground for Graham’s warm vocals and Husband’s musical ideas.

The quartet will present familiar and well-loved jazz standards and also bring some new tunes into the mix – imagine a fresh jazz take on classic Gordon Lightfoot.

More and more people are coming to the Sunday afternoon musical offerings at the Royal Coachman. It’s a great way to enjoy a little downtime on a wintry  Sunday afternoon.
