The Shady welcomes pianist Gary Hodi

The entertainment continues at the Shady Rest in Qualicum Beach

The Shady Waterfront Restaurant in Qualicum Beach has come up with a way to jazz up the middle of the week.

Every Wednesday in January and February you can enjoy a meal and listen to the piano stylings and beautiful vocals of Gary Hodi.

Those who were on hand to hear the 32-year- old Qualicum Beach musician on his opening debut last week were impressed, saying he played his piano as though he was born with it and sang like a cross between Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jr.  Rosalee Sullivan, who is a guest vocalist on Wednesday nights, said Hodi is ridiculously talented.

“He is a head turner when he plays. His songs aren’t intrusive. You can still carry on a conversation over dinner while enjoying his music,” she said

The talented pianist spent his school years in Qualicum Beach and is a product of the highly acclaimed music program at KSS. When he was a teenager Hodi was part of a high school band called Swingcopation and Sullivan said even back then Hodi was good.

“They were such a good little band. I am glad Gary is getting back into the music scene.”

Hodi who plays mostly jazz standards will be a regular at the Shady Waterfront Restaurant on Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m. throughout January and February.
