Delfeayo Marsalis is one of the top trombonists, composers and producers in jazz today. Known for his “technical excellence, inventive mind and frequent touches of humor” (Los Angeles Times), he is “one of the best, most imaginative and musical of the trombonists of his generation” (San Francisco Examiner). 
In 2011, Delfeayo and the Marsalis family (father Ellis and brothers Branford, Wynton and Jason) earned the nation’s highest jazz honour, a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award.

Delfeayo has produced over seventy-five major label recordings, several of which have received Grammy awards and nominations, including works by Harry Connick, jr., Marcus Roberts, Spike Lee, Ellis, Branford and Wynton Marsalis.

THE HOLD STEADY

Formed in 2000 from the Minneapolis band Lifter Puller, the Hold Steady released Almost Killed Me in 2004. In addition to Craig Finn, the band’s current lineup is guitarist Tad Kubler (also ex-Lifter Puller), bassist Galen Polivka and drummer Bobby Drake. 

Longtime Minnesota Twins fans, they recorded a lilting rock version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” for use during Twins games and covered Bob Dylan’s “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?” for the 2007 Dylan biopic I’m Not There.
Their most recent album, Heaven Is Whenever, came out 2010.

Janelle Monáe

She’s been called “a true visionary… one of the most important signings of my career” by Sean “Diddy” Combs. For singer, songwriter, and high funkstress Janelle Monáe, the impetus remains the same as it’s been since before her two Grammy-nominated releases Metropolis, Suite I: The Chase and The ArchAndroid; her focus remains on stirring your soul, moving your feet and creating good music.

Monáe’s live shows are a soaring orchestral trip enlivened with blockbuster vocals, mysterious imagery and notes of Sixties pop and jazz. She’s strongly influenced by Michael Jackson, Prince and David Bowie and you’re going to love the dance moves.

THE ANTLERS
with guests HAUNTER
Saturday, June 23, 10:00 pm
Pyramid Cabaret, 176 Fort St.

Advance tickets are only $18 and are available online, by phone at 989-4656 
or in person at the Jazz Winnipeg office.

Presented by REFRESH, 101.5 UMFM, and CKUW 95.9FM

For Brooklyn-based The Antlers, what started out as a solo lo-fi folk project of 
Peter Silberman evolved into a colossal-sounding chamber pop group.

Haunter’s line-up consists of: Matt Williams (lead vocals/guitar), Jory Hasselmann (guitar), Marie-France Hollier (bass), Ryan Coates (drums) and Cole Woods (guitar). They have shared the stage with artists such as Attack In Black, Julie Doiron, Oxford Collapse, Women, Hey Rosetta! and the Handsome Furs. Haunter is finishing up their debut 
full-length album, due out this summer.

After self-recording a handful of albums, Silberman set forth to record his opus, Hospice, in 2007. The band followed that up with the more electronic-minded Burst Apart, in 2011. They’ve toured the world, blending the ambient with the anthemic in their live shows.
