The Jaybirds Live

Sunday, February 18, 2024

7:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Merville Hall , Merville, V0R 2M0

On Sunday, February 18th, from 7:30 to – 10:00 pm, JOHN REISCHMAN, the grand master of the mandolin, will be rocking the Big Yellow Merville hall with his hot band, the JAYBIRDS.

From his 1980 days in California with the original Tony Rice Unit, John has dazzled audiences across the globe with dozens of mesmerizing original compositions played with great power, taste and gorgeous tone on his rare, and mighty, 1924 “Lloyd Loar” Gibson mandolin. Many of his dozens of original instrumentals have become popular favourites for sessions and covers, such as the jam standard Saltspring, (which is also a favourite of the local super fiddle group, Fiddlejam).

Tickets for this dynamic show are $25.00 and are available at Blue Herron Books in Comox; Long and McQuade in Courtenay; The Music Plant in Campbell River and at the door. 

So, shake those rainy-day blues and transport yourself back to the bluer, grassy days of summer at the Big Yellow Merville hall on Sunday, February 18th with John Reischman & the Jaybirds.  Doors open at 7:00pm, concert 7:30.  For more information: 250-339-4249; seabankmars@shaw.ca
