The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Michael Kaeshammer on Saturday, October 3rd 2015 at 7:30pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. This concert is the Centre’s 14th birthday bash and 2015/16 Season opener.
Michael Kaeshammer is called Canada’s triple-threat combo of piano virtuosity, vocal ability and charisma. This potent combination has earned the Toronto based artist international critical acclaim and a loyal and growing fan base. Kaeshammer’s performances are a true joy and his energy knows no bounds. He has piano technique to burn and to his audience’s delight has an acrobatic way with a grand piano.
When Kaeshammer performs, it’s obvious he’s having a ball. His performances are first rate boogie-woogie, blues, jazz, and pop cross-over material, drawn mostly from an impressive list of standards and his catalogue of studio recordings.
For this October 3rd concert, Kaeshammer is joined on stage by his longtime drummer Mark McLean and bassist Marc Rogers, showcasing a set of original songs that are as playful as they are contagious. Kaeshammer and his band have the crowd eating out of the palm of their hands and never do they leave with anything short of a standing ovation.
A reviewer of his performance at the Tanglewood Jazz Festival noted: “drawing on a rock solid knowledge of the early piano greats, Kaeshammer does more than play the way they did. He entertains with a capital ‘E’ the way they did… he taps into a part of music that’s almost lost, connecting deeply with the audience on a gut level, so they are no longer just spectators in the music-making.”
