Join Smith, Funk and Strauss as they reunite once again this Christmas to bring another fabulous folk and jazz infused evening of Christmas songs. Joined by some of the finest Okanagan musicians, this show is sure to be a favorite this Christmas season just as it was last year. Don't wait to buy tickets, it could be a sell out!
SFS has just released their brand new Christmas album called A VERY MERRY ACOUSTIC CHRISTMAS. It features fresh folk and jazz arrangements of your favourite songs, and the trio’s famous vocal harmonies. Standout tracks include a gypsy jazz version of Sleigh Ride and a tap-style meets the blues version of Little Drummer Boy. The album is available now at normstrauss.com – and at the show on Friday December 6.
Put this show on the Christmas season calendar! Not only will you enjoy a night of the fabulously entertaining Smith Funk and Strauss trio (Andrew Smith, Sherri Funk and Norm Strauss), but you will be mesmerized by the talent of some of the Okanagan's finest musicians who will join them on stage.
This year we are happy to have back the virtuous virtuoso from Vernon - put your hands together for Neil Fraser! Neil is renowned as an outstanding Jazz, Blues and Roots guitarist. He likes to take chances on stage and he takes the audience along for the wild ride.
And on bass guitars, a killer musician and SO fun to watch on stage - the untouchable, the inimitable Jim Ryan! Formerly of the Cruzeros, and numerous other groups, he is currently playing with Dirt Road Opera who will have a new album out soon!
And on drums and percussion, holding everything together - the zen master of the groove - give it up for Scotty Gamble! Celebrated as THE go-to drummer for every style from jazz to rock to pop, Scotty is - even if he was all by himself - worth the price of admission.
And new to the band this year, on the piano, with fingers that dance across the ivories - the laid-back, gum-chewing disciple of cool - let me hear you scream for Dean Salyn.
