Fratters Speakeasy

Fratters is THE NEW MUSIC VENUE to play in Red Deer and it is a beautiful club. Cheryl Fisher Quintet will be the kickoff concert of the JATL 2015 Concert Series. Cheryl has not performed in Central Alberta for over 2 1/2 years, since she has been the Festival’s producer and she will be using her A-list Calgary guys playing standards and her originals, so it should be a great night.

EVENT: Concert: Cheryl Fisher Quintet
TIME: Saturday, April 4,
VENUE: Fratters in Red Deer
ADMISSION: $20.00

This concert will feature drummer Dan Brubeck with his trio playing symphony charts of his famous father Dave Brubeck’s compositions and at Dan’s request, possibly a couple of surprise guest artists. Back in 2007 (the 5th annual JATL festival) Dan received a standing ovation after the 2nd or 3rd tune on the FIRST half of the concert--we had never seen anything like this before. This will be a wonderful night.Tickets sold at RDSO office.
