Kelowna Actors Studio opens its theatre doors for the month of Aug. to Hot Jazz.  Host Anna Jacyszyn, in collaboration with Nathan Flavel and Randy Leslie, have created a modern day speakeasy for like-minded jazz, funk and soul lovers. From Aug. 13 until Aug. 29 every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Jazz at the KAZ is set to ignite Kelowna.

Coming out of a year-long sabbatical, the Jazz Café Band is pumped and ready to perform on stage almost every night expelling infectious energy and crazy jazz chops for all young-at-heart-club-goers who crave music and an atmosphere that is sophisticated yet totally relaxed.

A date to remember is the final night, Saturday Aug. 29, when the Jazz Café Band will be featuring the songs of 007 BOND in anticipation of the upcoming release of Spectre.  Book early for this one then dress in your most glamorous attire and celebrate the success of a great month.

A fully licensed Moonshine and Martini Bar along with the best of local beers, wines and spirits are on the menu to assist with the schmoozing, flirting, chat or chill to the exceptional performances happening on stage.  Doors open at 6 p.m. into an air-conditioned room for dinner and drinks to begin.  At 6.30 p.m. each night, members and guests can listen to smooth jazz by recently formed Sharply Detached.  Each night for an hour, Stevie T and Michael Arthur will give you a cool dose of original and infamous tunes to create the perfect digestive for visiting members and guests.
