It’s the littlest jazz festival around with some big talent – and it’s right here in Tofino. Join us for this inaugural event in late June.
FRIDAY JUNE 22nd
8:30pm : PARC X TRIO at the Clayoquot Sound Theatre
Parc X trio is a Montreal-based contemporary jazz trio featuring piano, bass and drums. Parc X trio began its journey 10 years ago in an old duplex in Parc-Extension, one of Montreal’s most multi-cultural boroughs. Their music is an original blend of pop song structures, contemporary jazz harmonies, staggering dynamics and break-beat grooves over odd time signatures. To date, Parc X trio has released five records and one EP, has been awarded the TD Grand Prize for Jazz at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal in 2010, has done a countless number of shows and tour regularly throughout Canada, Mexico, USA and Europe. Tofino rarely gets visited by such an accomplished jazz band, don’t miss out on this unique evening in our cosy Theatre.
Tickets $20 at Caravan Beach Shop or at the door (8pm)
