Vinyl Envy Presents : Ilhan Saferali Quartet
Double set of great jazz from a upcoming talented quartet
8:00pm - 10:00pm Doors at: 7:30pm
Ilhan is a rising young musician making a name for himself in the jazz scene. A trumpet and piano player, he has already made quite a mark playing with award-winning musicians such as Chucho Valdes and Kamasi Washington and working with the David Suzuki Foundation on their EcoMUSICology project. Ilhan also appeared in a recent interview on CBC Radio Canada.
Over his years as a musician, Ilhan has cultivated a versatile repertoire of play styles such as Jazz, Rock, Funk and Latin, taking inspiration from both classic pianists such as Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson and modern jazz players like Brad Mehldau. Currently, he is composing complex modern jazz arrangements, playing in various venues from theatres to halls, and regularly performing at gigs in the Greater Vancouver Area with fellow young musicians such as students from Capilano University's jazz program.
Ilhan prides himself on his mature sound and complex solo routines, and he hopes to be an inspiration to other budding jazz musicians and a torchbearer for jazz on both a local and global scale.

We are happy to announce that we're back to hosting live music on our stage!!
With the help of FACTOR and Creative BC from Sept 17th we'll be blessed to have some beautiful artists cross our stage again. Shows are Friday and Saturday evenings. Tickets can be purchased online in advance through the Eventbrite link on the Facebook event page. If online ticket purchases don't sell the show out there will be tickets available at the door.
It's at your discretion to wear a mask or not inside. Dancing is a thing again! It can feel cosy in here with a full house and we understand apprehensions as things open back up. We're all navigating this differently as we move back to some sort of semblance of normalcy, we'll strive to accommodate all in the enjoyment of musical performance.
Thanks for you understanding and support, we can't wait to see y'all!!
