The Georgia Straight Jazz Society

Kelby MacNayr Trio

Thursday October 5th 2023

It's a pleasure to invite you to an amazing trio when Kelby MacNayrs brings his powerhouse trio to The Little Red Church in Comox. Sit back and relax to the swing, sass and soul of classic jazz!

The trio features the swinging and soulful drums and vocals of Kelby MacNayr, the outrageously groovy Hammond B3 organ of Dr. Tony Genge and the masterful, understated guitar of Andrew Janusson. This group is a tour-de-force of swing!

Drummer and vocalist Kelby MacNayr has performed across North America with many of the greats in jazz and world music including Grammy award winners John Clayton, Alex Cuba and Gail Deadrick, Canadians Ian McDougall, Dan Thompson, Hugh Fraser and Neil Swainson and has shared the stage with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Terrell Stafford, Tamir Hendlemen and more!

Organist Tony Genge has long been a staple of the Canadian jazz scene, teaching at Saint Francis Xavier in Nova Scotia before relocating to the West Coast. Now Island-based, Tony has played with a Who's Who of Canadian and international jazz greats from David "fat head" Newman to Jeff Hamilton, John Scofield, as well as other Counts, Dukes and Kings - Count Basie, Duke Ellington & Nat King Cole!

Finally, guitarist Andrew Jannusson has been described as a rising star on the West Coast jazz scene. In demand as a leader and collaborator, Jannusson has shared the stage with Tony Genge, Ryan Oliver, Phil Dwyer, Joe Coughlin and many more.

The show starts at 7:30p.m. with doors opening at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $20 ($15 for GSJS Members) and $5 for students.
