The Qualicum Beach Jazz Combo is hoping their performance at the Thalassa Restaurant at the Qualicum Beach Memorial Golf Course next week becomes a regular gig.

With Tom Joseph on drums, Doug Gretsinger on bass and Gary Hodi on keyboards, the trio will be providing live music from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27 at the Thalassa Restaurant.  The local musicians have also invited some young jazz musicians from the KSS music program to perform a set.

Kyle Gorenko who plays guitar and Julian Telfer-Wan who plays trombone are both outstanding young musicians making a name for themselves in the community.

Thalassa restaurant owner Oura Giakoumakis said they want to have more jazz evenings and have booked musicians for April 17 and May 8.  She said there is no cover charge but you do need a reservation.

This summer she said they hope to add dinner and dancing under the stars.  She said in July and August they will have the band perform on the patio so people can dance outside between 7:30 and 10:30 p.m.

She said the jazz trio will perform with different guests on each occasion and they will also try to include a student musician from the KSS music program.

For reservations phone 250-954-1151.
