All I Want is You

Hello everyone,

I hope you all are enjoying great weeks thus far. Here is a thought for your day: “Courage is grace under pressure” - Ernest Hemmingway.

Today, The Lucas Sader Project released a brand new music video, which captures the group performing my arrangement of U2’s “All I Want is You” at our Apollo Album Release show back in November. The video features the incomparable Erin Propp on vocals, myself on drums, trumpeter Derrick Gardner, saxophonist Paul Balcain, pianist Will Bonness, and bassist Karl Kohut. Filmed and edited by New Eternity Productions. Click here to check our the video.

It is ALMOST TWO WEEKS until The Lucas Sader Project: 2013 TD Winnipeg Jazz Festival. Friday, June 21st, 10:30PM at Cinematheque (100 Arthur Street). Featuring the same lineup listed above. $15 in advance. Make sure to pick up your tickets before the event by clicking here.

The poster for the event hit the streets this past week. It was designed by John Funk at Underscorefunk Design. Click here to check out the poster, and follow this link to check out John's website.

For those of you who would like to check out more of the Jazz Festival, I will also be performing with the Paul De Gurse Quartet on Tuesday, June 18th, at 8:00PM at the Winnipeg Free Press News Café (237 McDermot Avenue). The group will feature Paul and myself, along with Neil Watson and Karl Kohut.

Thank you all once again for your support. Keep an eye out for a Jazz Festival preview by Chris Smith in the Winnipeg Free Press in the next week or so. Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead.

Carpe diem,

- Lucas
