Fancy a jazz night in New Orleans? Head to the Saint-Laurent Arts Center for a lively performance by Soggy Po ‘Boys. Singer / guitarist Stu Dias will kick off with a brief overview of musical conventions and the historical context of this much-loved style of jazz. Then it’s off to the races with seven musicians who love what they do and play guitar, trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, piano, double bass and drums / percussion. You will quickly hear how the sound of New Orleans influences their music in the stories they tell and the original tunes they play.

For more than three decades, the 1964 Fab Four Beatles tribute band have performed the iconic tunes of their favorite band, going to great lengths to recreate the costumes, feel and, most importantly, the sound of a live Beatles performance. Don’t let it be, get yourself a ticket and join your Beatles fan friends. Money can’t buy love, but it can definitely buy you a fun night out.
