NVJQ with Derek 2018

There are very few vibes players around that inspire me the way that Andy Macpherson does with the creative lines that he weaves. Andy, Tom, Dan and Gary put me in a mood that I definitely did not want to leave…” – Larry Larson

Andy, Jerzy, John and Dan are bringing their style of standards to the Jazz Room with guest drummer Jay Boehmer.  Jay is a Canadian drummer, composer, and bandleader with Kitchener roots who as been performing on the Toronto jazz scene since 1990.  Composing at the piano with the spirit of a drummer, his music ranges from straight-ahead swing to offbeat rhythmic grooves.  Jay is a classmate of Andy’s from Humber School of Music days, NVJQ is excited to welcome him to the stage.
