Marienda, Will Bonness, Winnipeg JazzFest, and a few of "My Favourite Things"...

Summer is upon us and good things are coming!

Listeners were treated to a live interview and on-air performance last Friday with Jocelyn Gould and Joanna Majoko, and their new musical project Marienda. We had lots of fun gabbin' about music and such. Jocelyn and Joanna will also be part of the opening act - Vox Populi - for the upcoming Winnipeg Jazz Festival concert on May 18 with Canadian soul singer Tanika Charles. Definitely worth checking out! If you missed the party, download the first hour of our show for the week of May 6, 2016 on

(See them live at Ripe Bistro this Thursday, May 12 - good food and great music.)

And of course, the 2016 Wininpeg International Jazz Festival is just around the corner from June 16 to June 26. Lots of great local and international Check Ça- friendly acts.  Over the next month or so, we'll have some special guests and live performances from acts appearing in the festival. Stay tuned!

And finally... check out local musician and professor (at the Desautels Faculty of Music Jazz Studies with the  University of Manitoba), Will Bonness'  release party for his 2nd CD on tomorrow night May 11 at the West End Cultural Centre. Will Bonness appears on many of the albums for local musicians we play on Check Ça - jazz fans would certainly have hear him on CKUW's long-standing jazz programme Voyage on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
