Event Archive - Funkified Urban Jazz: Maureen Washginton, Daniel Cook

Fri. April 6th 2018 Upstairs Lounge - Oak Bay Recreation Centre (All Ages)
7:30 pm doors at 6 pm
$20 advance | $25 at the door
Maureen Washington and Daniel Cook, a musical collaboration best described as ‘Funkified Urban Jazz’, play a unique blend of blues, funk, jazz, Latin & roots music. Classic standards mixed with well-crafted original songs are performed with Ryan Tandy, Damian Graham and special guest Jerry Cook.

With now nine albums to her credit, Maureen Washington began her musical career in her home town of Prince George. Maureen slips easily from sassy to sexy within a single line of lyrics, at times echoing the haunting tones of Etta James and Carmen McRae, then faster than the mind and ear can make the transition, Maureen Washington exudes the impish irreverence of Jann Arden and the vocal agility of Holly Cole. And yet, with all splendor attached to such comparisons, Maureen’s musical style remains distinctly her own. Among her many nominations and awards is the 2014 Black Canadian Award for Best Jazz and Soul Artist.

Daniel Cook is a singer songwriter who fuses contagious melodies with timeless stories creating a fresh brand of Original West Coast Roots Music, and a guitarist who blends melody and minimalism into a sweet mix of jazz and country guitar traditions.

Please note The Upstairs Lounge is a licensed restaurant and bar, doors open at 6 pm for dinner service, the concert starts at 7:30 pm
