Tom Tinsley Trio

Members $10 , non-members $12

After a ten person strong group last week when La Familia heated up the room with their Latin vibe, this week we have a trio.

Please note, the Maureen Washington concert next week is sold out.

Tom Tinsley, playing vibraphone leads the trio. In addition to teaching drums at various points in his life, Tom has appeared in a variety of groups performing genres of music including jazz (with Al Matheson), rock (with Jerry Doucette), Latin, pop, big band (with CBC), musical theater (with Disney), symphonic (with Vancouver Symphony Orchestra), choral, and modern dance. His first passion remains the vibraphone, both as a solo instrument and in small group settings.

We have seen Tom on our stage many times in the last few years, mainly as the drummer in shows like the tributes to Chet Baker, Louis Armestrong, also the RGB Mose Lives show. He has played with the Symaptico, Jenn Forsland and Jake Masri bands.

Browse the Calendar page of our website for more information about the 2018 fall season's 16 jazz performances, and the 38 scheduled concerts in the forthcoming year 2019. That way, you will quickly realize why Courtenay has become a significant performance destination on the Canadian jazz scene.
