Joel Jeschke is a professional drummer/composer based out of Edmonton, Alberta. Since graduating from MacEwan University he has become a sought after player across genres, best known for his work with alt-rock group Whale and the Wolf, The Citadel Theatre’s production of ‘Hadestown’ as well as jazz artists Stephanie Urquhart and Kate Blechinger. As a bandleader he has performed at the Yardbird Suite, Kaleido Arts Festival, the 2018 TD Edmonton International Jazz festival and was scheduled to perform at the 2020 TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival. Joel’s music is highly rhythmic and syncopated, blending intricate composed material with improvisation influenced strongly by the young Scandinavian jazz scene.
In the spirit of our incredible collective effort to flatten the curve, your Yardbird Suite, Edmonton’s premiere jazz venue since 1957, is presenting a series of live online performances for the Yardbird Suite Virtual Series.
We broadcast live from the Yardbird Suite. There are no audiences other than the performers and audio technician who are physically distant, do not share the same equipment, nor come into contact with each other. Every effort has been made to comply with AHS safety guidelines.
Curated by Edmonton musician Stephanie Urquhart, the all-Edmonton lineup features a variety of solos, duets, and instruments. Performances will run Fridays & Saturdays 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
If you missed some of broadcasts, or want to watch again, please visit our Youtube page.
The Yardbird Suite Virtual Series is made possible due to the generous support of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Edmonton Community Foundation.
