Don’t forget your lawn chair and sun hat for an afternoon of fun at the Jazz, Tea and Cheesecake at the Little Qualicum Cheeseworks on Sunday, Aug. 15.
The event will take place at the Morningstar Farm, 403 Lowrys Rd. in Parksville, from 1:30 p.m. until 4 p.m.
Attendees can expect an Ellington-Basie revival with Ken Lister (bass), James McRae (drums), Claudio Fantinato (alto sax), Ben Henriques (tenor sax), Larry Miller (bari sax), Paul Nuez (trombone) and Dave Stewart (trumpet).
The Miles Black ensemble will also be performing with vocalist Maureen Washington and guest vocalist Julia Copeman-Haynes.
Seating will be limited so attendees are asked to arrive early and bring their own lawn chairs, if possible.
Tickets are available at the Farmgate Store, Mulberry Bush Bookstore, Sea and Summit Bookshop, and at the door. They will be $35 for adults and $20 for students if purchased at the door.
