Lots to report in the next while. The Tyson Naylor Trio will be playing this Wednesday, April 9th at 9pm at the Emerald in Chinatown. The trio will be doing two electric sets. We had a wild set at the China Cloud a few months back and we’ll be doing a similar approach for this one – a bit more raucous.
Also, don’t miss Sick Boss and Tiny Pyramids this Thursday, April 10th for the first night of the China Cloud Fundraiser! Sick Boss is Cole Schmidt (guitar), Dan Gaucher (drums), Peggy Lee (cello), Jeremy Page (clarinet), Tyson Naylor (accordion) and James Meger (bass). Tiny Pyramids (Dan Gaucher (d), Colin Cowan (b), Tyson Naylor (keys) plays the music of the legendary Sun Ra. More info on this mini-festival at:
The China Cloud is located at 524 Main St.
All the best for the holidays! I hope the festive season brings you the peace, love, and joviality.
I’d like to express my appreciation for all the support you’ve given the trio. 2013 was a milestone year for us, as it brought our first show in New York City and our first big tour. We managed to reach a lot of new ears, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have shown an interest in our music as well as the very generous people who have helped us along. I’d like to especially thank Skye Brooks and Russell Sholberg for their creativity, dedication, and prowess.
I hope 2014 is as rewarding for us as 2013, and wish you all the best for the new year.
For those not already apprised via Facebook or other means, my trio will be playing TONIGHT (Thursday, Nov. 21) at Vancouver’s premiere Jazz Club, the Jazz Cellar. This is our first show at the Cellar, and the last at its current location.
Tickets can be purchased at cellarjazz.com and you can hear our music at tysonnaylor.com
Music starts at 8pm, and we’ll be doing two sets.
Here’s a cool video from our CD release show:
Thanks for your support.
Thanks to everyone in attendance in Vancouver, Ottawa, Guelph, Rochester, Brooklyn, Montreal and Halifax during this past tour. We had so much fun that we’re already scheming about the next one. If we missed you, and you would like us to play in your town, please drop me a line. Also, if you’re interested in a T-shirt, we will have them available online soon, but if you’d like one before that, please contact me. Also, make sure you’re on the mailing list.
