REMI-JEAN LEBLANC TRIO + ERIK HOVE

Since his arrival in Montreal at the age of 18, Rémi-Jean LeBlanc has gone a long way on the Montreal music scene. His first collaborations happened while he was still doing his undergraduate degree at l'Université de Montréal, where he took lessons with Michel Donato for 3 years. As he was finishing his degree, he started playing and working with some of the fixtures of the local scene, which allowed him to pursue his musical development and make a name for himself all over Quebec. He is presently in demand for highly artistic projects by musicians such as Yannick Rieu, Steve Amirault, Chet Doxas, and Joel Miller, as well as being sought out for commercial music, including people like Ginette Reno. For the last few years, he has also had the chance to accompany international artists passing through Montreal, notably David Binney, Seamus Blake, and Greg Osby.

JAM SESSION ANIMé PAR ALEX BELLEGARDE

Alex Bellegarde’s dynamic Tuesday jam session has become one of Montreal’s hippest weekly jazz events. The first set fires up with Bellegarde and his trio, playing host to a range of well known talents from the Montreal scene as well as musicians from out of town. The jam opens in the second set, to any jazz musician with the confidence to step up and play…there’s an unspoken rule though: “If you can’t keep up, you shouldn’t be on stage”. A great place to play and chill…. the jam continues on into the early hours!
