Victoria Jazz Society

Ryan Oliver Quartet

Sunday, June 25 | Cameron Bandshell (Beacon Hill Park) | 2:15pm

Juno-nominated saxophonist Ryan Oliver steeped his concept and artistry in the creative fires of Amsterdam, honed his craft in Toronto and realized his dream of joining thousands of saxophonists at crowded jam sessions for several years in the jazz metropolis of New York City before returning to BC. For over 15 years, Oliver toured the world with legendary Canadian jazz group the Shuffle Demons along with performing with a who’s who of the Canadian jazz scene. He has been nominated for the Prix De Jazz at the Montreal Jazz Festival and for this year’s Western Canadian Music Awards “Jazz Musician fo the Year”. His saxophone tone and musical world reflect the uniqueness of these scenes and his musical journey. Nick Peck keyboards, Alex Coleman bass, Hans Verhoeven drums

Free to attend at the Cameron Bandshell, Beacon Hill Park on Sunday, June 25.
