Halifax's GUERRILLA VACATION Octet plays at the Bus Stop Theatre 29 September

By Administrator

As a saxophonist, clarinettist, award-winning composer and bandleader, Canadian jazz iconoclast Paul Cram has led creative orchestras across the country for thirty years. From Vancouver’s New Orchestra Workshop to Toronto’s Hemispheres to the Paul Cram Orchestra and currently as Artistic Director of Halifax’s Upstream Music Association he has been busy developing a 21st Century “punk jazz” that cuts across record bins and stylistic ghettos.

Guerrilla Vacation is his latest project. The octet is a distillation of his recent work with Upstream Music’s Guerrilla Orchestra, a 15 piece group that work-shopped and performed members' original creative music over the past three years in the Halifax area. Orchestrating wicked songs and sound-scapes using electronics, horns and strings plus blistering free improvisation, Guerrilla Vacation shakes up a joyous ‘lil cocktail that entertains and enlightens. Guerrilla Vacation features the finest players currently working in Atlantic Canada. Guerrilla Vacation is: Toni Pigot – voice, Lee Park – violin Rick Waychesko – trumpet, Paul Cram - tenor sax/clarinet/composer/arranger, Dawn Hatfield - baritone sax, Jeff Torbert - guitar/electronics, Lukas Pearse - contra&electric bass/electronics, David Burton – drums

Show details:
Saturday Sept 29th 10:00 pm @ The Bus Stop Theatre
2203 Gottingen Street , Halifax
