Dave and Stefan will be putting their own spin to some old jazz standards that are well known but not often played at the Yardbird jams. Feel free to sing along if you know the words, following proper social distancing of course.
Dave Herrick moved to Edmonton when he was 19 to study trumpet at MacEwan then on to St. FXU in Nova Scotia, he’s been in the Edmonton music scene in a variety of roles and musical styles for going on 30 years. For the last 8 months where he’s been in covid-19 seclusion fighting off Netflix binging, video game addiction by diving into the practice woodshed to work on the finer points of trumpet playing. Dave’s influences include Freddiie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Clifford Brown, Tom Harrell, Marquis HIll and too many others to list.
Stefan Shewchuk is an Edmonton based Jazz guitarist drawing from influences like Jim Hall, Wes Montgomery, and John Scofield. As a working guitarist in many genres, Stefan brings his own unique voice to his compositions and favourite standards.
