Modeled after the classic jazz club combination of an intimate performance with a great meal in a cool club, this series features some of our festival’s brightest lights in jazz. We’ve partnered with Kitchen Sync and noted chef Ben Kramer to expand our Dinner & A Show series.
JUNO-winner Allison Au leads an all-star lineup including soulful Canadian piano virtuoso Robi Botos, former U of Manitoba prof George Colligan, chanteuse Ellen Doty, and local favourites Erin Propp & Larry Roy.
If you’re a jazz lover who has travelled, you’ve most likely been to the type of club we at Jazz Winnipeg often wish we had here in Winnipeg — a small, intimate room with phenomenal musicians on stage and tables cozily nestled around. Martinis being shaken, wine poured, the horns blare, the piano rumbles. We want to create that experience for you, if only for a week.
The intimate Kitchen Sync is a modern, cozy event space on the edge of Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District. Featuring great wines and creative cocktails, its the perfect space to kick back and take in a great meal and great music.
