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!

Alex Bellegarde Trio and guest : Beth McKenna - saxophone

6 à 8 AVEC LE TRIO BBQ

Le Trio BBQ was co-founded in the spring of 2004 by Jean-Michel Bérubé and Mathieu Beaudet. First inspired by the late Django Reinhardt, “Bérubé-Beaudet Gypsy Guitar Duet” soon became the official BBQ Trio due to this fortunate pair-up with bassist Vincent Quirion! Le Trio BBQ launched a first album entitled Cinémanouche in 2008. On this first instrumental effort, (with the exception of two songs with vocals), the band added a little extra taste to the gypsy jazz repertoire by giving new flavours to TV themes “The Simpsons“ and classics from the screen “Harry Potter”, “Jaws”, “E.T.”)… Since 2006, the band is mainly performing as a quartet with singer Katerine Desrochers. Proclaimed “coup de coeur” at the 2006 FGMAT* festival, the band has been touring every summer ever since in France, Belgium and Québec. Le Trio BBQ onstage is all about virtuosity, velocity, charm and contagious laughter. The Trio’s live shows attract people of all ages, sexes and backgrounds. Within two years, the band made quite an impression performing in many festivals alongside international artists. The band’s talent was rewarded in 2009 by the CCL* (Conseil de la Culture des Laurentides) who honored them with the Musical Revelation of the Year award. Currently recording their second but first all-original album with Katerine, Le Trio BBQ is mustering a collection of new songs mixed with instrumental pieces such as the world famous “Guillaume Tell” overture. The release of this new record entitled Sur la route des épices is due November 12th 2013 in Montreal.  As its name says, the 11 songs CD brings you «on the spice trade silkroad» going from Klezmer to classical music, tangos to bossa novas…  Along the way, valuable special guests joined in for the ride. The likes of percussionist Véronique Boucher, accordionist Didier Dumoutier and the cymbalum virtuoso Alexandru Sura appear on a few compositions.
