Forbidden Jazz Trio returns to Zocalo Café for an evening performance on Fri, June 13.

Featuring Jake Masri on trumpet, flugelhorn, and vocals, Mike Eddy on keyboards, and Grahame Edwards on bass, they strive to reach audiences of all ages by performing a wide variety of timeless jazz standards and original compositions.

Representing more than four decades of experience, their unique blend of voice, brass, and strings will weave their collective magic through two sets of entertaining music.

Keyboard master Michael Eddy is a welcome addition to the trio, replacing Jim Chew on guitar. Although relatively new to the Valley,  Mike has been fortunate enough to collaborate with many fantastic musicians over the past few years.

Grahame Edwards studied music at the University of British Columbia and holds a Diploma in Fine Arts from the University of Calgary.

Aside from both acoustic and electric bass, Grahame also plays percussion and trumpet.

No stranger to the local music scene, Jake Masri draws his inspiration from classical repertoire to musical theater to Afro-Cuban/New Orleans, and Bebop styles.

We invite you to join us for a casual, entertaining evening of jazz. Music commences at 7  p.m. and admission is by donation.

The spacious café displays local artwork while the licensed kitchen offers a supper menu of sweet and savoury food plus assorted beverages.

For more info and reservations, please contact Zocalo Café & Gallery at 250-331-0933, or simply drop by the corner of 5th Street and Cliffe Ave. in downtown Courtenay (www.zocalocafe.ca.)
