Mimosa
Saturday 4th November 2017 at 8:00pm

This is a special tribute to Canada’s 150 anniversary and zeroes in on Women in Music. The Vancouver quintet draws on Jazz, Brazilian Sambas, French sixties pop, and Cabaret music to concoct its own unique sound: gorgeous melodies, quirky lyrics, incredible groove, and sky- high improvisations.

Mimosa’s Canada150 performance will feature 13 Canadian composers in the following manner: two from each of the five regions (West, Prairies, East, Maritimes, North); one historical and one contemporary; and the three women composers in the band.

Mimosa features: Rebecca Shoichet (vocals), Karen Graves (sax, flute, and backup vocals), Bernie Arai (drums), and James Meger (bass), and Anna Lumiere (piano and accordion).

 

Mimosa will be onstage at the Vernon Jazz Club (3000-31 Street) on Saturday, November 4th at 8 PM. Doors open at 7:15 PM. CASH ONLY BAR ON SITE. Tickets $20 online at vernonjazz.com and at our sponsor, Expressions of Time (2901-30 Ave), with a $5 rebate at the gig for VJS members.
