Presented By: Georgia Straight Jazz Society

Presented by the Georgia Straight Jazz Society, celebrated Vancouver Island jazz singer Edie Daponte is bringing her new show “What the World Needs Now...” to Courtenay for a special show at the Sid Williams Theatre.

The format of the show has the audience transported around the world to celebrate some of the most beloved love songs in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and German. Edie pays homage to classic love songs with her soaring and stirring vocal renditions and is joined by her longtime collaborator Joey Smith on bass, Aaron Watson on guitar/accordion/saw, Damian Graham on drums, and Tony Genge on piano...a veritable who's who of Victoria jazz musicians. Through carefully chosen songs and dazzling costume changes, the audience can expect a captivating evening of music, love and storytelling.
