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.
Hello! For those of you who haven’t heard, the trio will be kicking off tour tonight with a set at Vancouver’s Vogue theatre, a sold-out double bill with Esperanza Spalding. We’ve also chosen this particular evening to unveil our brand new, beautiful hand-painted T-shirts!
Of course, the best place to see these is at one of our ten upcoming shows in Vancouver, Ottawa, Guelph, Rochester, Brooklyn, Montreal or Halifax. As they’re hand-made, there’s a limited number, so don’t wait too long!
