Royal Coachman Pub jazzes it up on Saturday

It's the best reason to get out of the garden and come down to the Royal Coachman

The live jazz scene at the Coachman Pub is starting to wind down but there are two more fabulous performances to go.

This Saturday’s best reason to get out of the garden and come down to the Royal Coachman is one of the newer incarnations in our local Jazz scene, DMN&FRNZ.

DMN are Michael Eddy on Piano, Neil Clark on Drums and Don MacKay on five-string bass.

These three musicians have been rehearsing a program which recognizes the talent of composers such as Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans and Horace Silver among others.

Their renditions of standards and not-so standards will be enhanced by the addition of FRNZ: Carrie Fowler on tenor sax and Jay Havelaar on trumpet.

The FRNZ bring a bucket load of talent to the group and are excited about the upcoming performance at the Jazz Club.

A few of the tunes you can look forward to enjoying are: Carrie Fowler’s soulful renditions of You Are Too Beautiful and Hugh Fraser’s Fairy Tales along with her wild interpretation of Chick Corea’s Captain Marvel.

Trumpeter Jay Havelaar will be delivering a blistering rendition of Joy Spring Also, to be looked forward to: Havelaar’s trumpet Intro to Spain

Don’t miss these seasoned players Saturday afternoon for live jazz at the Royal Coachman Pub.

The band kicks off at 1 p.m.
