Forbidden Jazz headlines the Royal Coachman Pub on Sunday afternoon of Nov. 27.

Featuring Jake Masri on trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals, Michael Eddy on keyboard, Grahame Edwards on bass, and Tom Tinsley on vibes/drums, these seasoned musicians attract an all inclusive audience by showcasing a wide variety of timeless jazz standards plus originals.

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

Keyboard master Eddy is one of the hardest working and sought after pianists in the Comox Valley. Although relatively new to the area, he has been fortunate enough to collaborate with many of the finest local musicians over the past few years, including those in the Lensmen, Jazztet, DMN and the Campbell River Big Band.

Aside from both acoustic and electric bass, Edwards also plays percussion and trumpet and has appeared with countless local ensembles and productions in every genre from Choral to Musical Theatre, Big Band Jazz to Classical.

Joining the trio on drums and vibes is special guest Tinsley. Don’t remind him he has played percussion for almost half a century, because deep inside he still feels like a teenager.

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

Join Forbidden Jazz for a casual, entertaining afternoon of music, starting at 1:00 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is by donation.
