Forsland Group blurs lines between jazz and pop

The Coachman Pub is excited to once again host an afternoon of live jazz music this Saturday, April 13 from 1-4 p.m.

The Jenn Forsland Group will be the third offering in the pub’s Saturday afternoon jazz calendar and marks the halfway point in the program of groups booked to perform there.

Together for four years, the Jenn Forsland Group’s repertoire is a blend of contemporary and standard tunes, all with a jazzy twist.

It is genuinely a collaborative effort as each player brings his or her unique and broad skill set to the band.

Tunes evolve with everyone’s input and the result is an eclectic set of repertoire that blurs the lines between jazz and pop.

Forsland moved to the Comox Valley seven years ago and has consistently enjoyed the bountiful opportunities available to musicians and music lovers.

In addition to teaching at two schools, she also directs the Celebration Singers, performs with multiple other bands, and plays as a solo act.

Group members Rick Husband and Grahame Edwards have been on the local music scene for years and each have an impressive list of accomplishments and co-collaborators.

Tony Morrison’s tasteful embellishments are the icing on the cake regardless of whether he is playing soprano, alto, tenor sax, or flute.

A promising combination of experience and variety, The Jenn Forsland group never fails to satisfy!

Check them out on line at jennforsland.com/ and be sure to swing by the Coachman this Saturday afternoon, April 13, admission by donation.
