Baritone Madness at Lolita's Lounge

Lolita's Lounge, 1413 9 Avenue SE, Calgary

Baritone Madness returns with another all new concert for you on Friday February 7, 2020 at Lolita's Lounge. This band has been making waves since we released our album at the end of September with three consecutive months at #1 on the Earshot Jazz charts (October, November & December 2019).

For this concert we've got some fun new arrangements for the band including one of Pat Belliveau's from his 1997 release that hasn't been played in far too long. Also on the plan is an arrangement of another Charles Mingus song, Oscar Peterson's "Blues of the Prairies", Dizzy Gillespie's "Manteca" and more to be decided soon.

Cover is $15 cash at the door. Call and make your reservation as soon as possible, but there's always room so come on down with or without a reservation. All ages are welcome.


I'll have the pleasure of playing with Piotr at the Yardbird Suite in Edmonton as well. Piotr is an amazing musician and bassist. You'll have to come and check it out if you're in the Edmonton area.

I'll be joining the amazing Polish bassist for a few trio sessions. Most of you might not know of Piotr, but I've had the pleasure of working with him once before and he is an exceptional musician! I can't wait to play these sessions. Please make a reservation at Lolita's Lounge and come on down.

Cover is $15 cash at the door. All ages.
