‘Genre Bender’ CD Release Concert
Friday September 23rd 8pm
Yukon Arts Centre, Whitehorse
Music will be available to download from: http://nicoleedwards.bandcamp.com
Rehearsals are going GREAT for the release of my 5th CD ‘Genre Bender’. I feel so blessed with AMAZING collaborators. There will be 10 performers and me! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime concert for me…. so I’d love you to be there to celebrate with me.
It will be a real variety show, true to the theme of “Genre Bender”. Each set will have a rock song, a puppet duet, some jazz, retro-R&B and more. It’ll be uplifting at times and playful at times.

My amazing band includes Yukon’s finest: Paul Bergman on bass, Andrea McColeman on keys, Jim Holland on guitar and Marc Paradis on drums.
I feel so abundant having a woodwind section! Featuring Big Band arranger and multi-instrumentalist Lenny Graf from Toronto. Plus everyone’s favourite local saxophonist Olivier de Colombel and Super-Advocate of the Arts and President of Jazz Yukon: Duncan Sinclair
And… so decadent and fun for me to have harmony singers! Sylvie Painchaud and Gary Lachance.
The MC for the evening will be the charming Fox Foxworthy puppet
Handsome Alvaro Puppet will be serving lychee martinis and lychee spritzers (non-alcoholic) at pre-show and intermission.
I’m pulling out all the Bells and Whistles!
