Saturday, June 9 – Kevin Dempsey Trio

KEVIN DEMPSEY has played with the great musicians from the Toronto jazz scene – witness this performance of Harvest Hills.  He has also toured extensively throughout North America and many international destinations including Malaysia, Italy, and Russia.

“An explosive musical force, an exquisite purveyor of color and groove, a beautifully rounded player” – Dave McMurdo

This chord-less trio features Juno nominee Kirk MacDonald, and celebrated bassist Vaughan Misener.  Under Kevin’s lead, they will play familiar standards along with original jazz tunes in a very intense and unique setting.

Each member of this high energy trio brings his own experienced approach and individuality to every meeting.

  • Kirk MacDonald – tenor and soprano saxes
  • Vaughan Misener – electric bass
  • Kevin Dempsey – drums

Dempsey is a charter member of the Dave McMurdo Jazz Orchestra, and also plays with the Dave Restivo Quintet, the Peter Appleyard Quintet, and has appeared in performance and on recordings with numerous other leading jazz musicians. He is a member of the Music Faculties of both McMaster University and Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario.
