30jun8:00 pmNorth Shore Jazz: John Boutté

Event Details

Each summer Capilano University presents North Shore Jazz as part of the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival in venues throughout the North Shore. The yearly line-up features an eclectic mix of stellar artists at venues including The BlueShore at Cap, Presentation House Theatre and the Kay Meek Centre plus free concerts at the Civic Plaza, Lynn Valley Village and the West Vancouver Memorial Library.

Walk down the tree-lined streets of the New Orleans Faubourg Marigny neighborhood on a hot sultry night, and chances are good you’ll hear John Boutté’s voice floating out of one of the area’s nightspots. Maybe it’ll be a soulful version of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come”, Annie Lennox’s “Why” or one of the bayou-blended tunes co-authored with his Marigny pal Paul Sanchez. No matter the song, it will stop you in your tracks, for Boutté – who was born into a large Creole family that goes back seven generations in Louisiana – lives and breathes the heart and soul of New Orleans. With Jeremy Holmes (bass), Chris Gestrin (keyboards), Jerry Cook (sax), Liam MacDonald (drums) and Scott Smith (guitar).
