Event Description

Like the beautiful orange sunsets that transform day to night, the Sunset Swing show will transform your mood on a soul level with fun groovy interpretations of jazz standards (such as tunes by Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, and as performed by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Julie London, Frank Sinatra, Anita O’Day and more recently by Vancouver Island-born and raised Diana Krall).

There is something magical that happens when certain instruments in combination become sonically more than the sum of their individual parts. Hermann’s regulars well know the magic of the full sound and rhythmic possibilities of Dr Genge-led piano trios plus voice, but on Thursday March 7, they will be delighted to hear award-winning jazz vocalist/lyricist Angela Verbrugge light up the stage with the soul-feeding and thrilling sound of his B3 organ trio.

Dr Tony Genge (PhD, Mus.) is joined by respected island jazz guitarist Andrew Janusson, and rising star drummer Graham Villette.

Surely this quartet must be one of the swingingist groups in Canada and we are delighted for them to take the stage at Hermann’s before Angela heads back to her European tour of Germany and France in April. The vocalist has had a meteoric rise since her debut album in 2019 and has since toured her music across Canada, Japan, Luxembourg, Germany, UK and Türkiye. She has been positively reviewed by major jazz publications and important critics including JazzTimes, JazzWise, JazzLives, Whole Note, LA Jazz Journal, Jersey Jazz, Jazziz, Couleurs Jazz France and many more. Her albums have received airplay on CBC, and internationally significant jazz programs, and she was number one for jazz on the Earshot chart multiple weeks.

Sunset Swing has built a thoughtful set list of jazz renditions of favourites songs you’ll recognize from popular culture alongside lesser known jazz standards, and originals penned by Verbrugge in a vintage musical theatre- and classic jazz real book- style. Angela’s shows frequently sell out, we do advise advance tickets to avoid disappointment.

(Delicious dinner options, wine list, cocktails and desserts available. Parking in the View St parkade.)
