PINKtunes is a celebration, a cabaret show that highlights the songs that marked key moments of Arturo's journey out and all the way to the Don't Tell Mama stage.

PINKtunes showcases these proud songs, and some that feel gay even if they were not written as "gay" songs to start with. Ultimately it is all simply beautiful music, poetry, joy, humor and emotion.

He is joined by Gary Williamson - piano, Terry Clarke - drums, Kevin Turcotte - trumpet and Perry White - saxophone. Young is, without a doubt, one of Canada's most valuable and beloved musical exports. Whether he's performing as part of a classical symphony, or as an integral member of an iconic jazz trio (with the likes of the late Oscar Peterson), or leading any of his dynamic ensembles, Dave remains a total musician, with artistic soul in abundance. He first began studying the guitar and violin at age ten, but a turn of events at his first gig (a University dance band) compelled him to pick up the bass. Equally comfortable in the worlds of orchestral classical music and jazz, Dave is a multiple threat. As a classical musician, he has been a member of The Edmonton Symphony, The Winnipeg Symphony and The Hamilton Philharmonic. As a jazz artist, he is a chameleon-like bassist, who often shines brightest in collaborative efforts with other musicians. Because of his technical skill, few bassists (jazz or otherwise) are able to dig in, swing hard and still render a lyrical arco solo as Dave can.

BOSTON: JOE LOUIS WALKER AT THE REGATTABAR

Joe Louis Walker will perform at THE REGATTABAR at the Charles Hotel (1 Bennett Street, Cambridge, MA - 617-395-7757) on Friday, January 17th at 7:30 pm. San Francisco's Fillmore District of the 1960s is known worldwide as the birthplace of psychedelic rock. But it was also a hotbed of modern electric blues, and it was the place where one of the genre's top musical trailblazers, Joe Louis Walker, was born, raised and schooled. The award-winning guitar slinger, deeply soulful vocalist and gifted songwriter has been releasing groundbreaking music since 1986, but his career goes all the way back to the mid-1960s. As a 16-year-old, he was the house guitarist at San Francisco's famed musical playground, The Matrix, where he played with or opened shows for everyone from Lightnin' Hopkins (who once threw him off the stage) to Jimi Hendrix to Thelonious Monk. These ear-opening surroundings explain the ease with which Walker blends blues, rock, gospel, jazz and country, making it seem as if the walls between the styles never existed in the first place. There is a $20 cover.

BOSTON: GREGORY PORTER AT SCULLERS

Gregory Porter will perform at SCULLERS JAZZ CLUB (400 Soldiers Field Road, Allston, MA - 617-562-4111) on Friday, January 17th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. In 2010, Gregory Porter's album, "Water," created strong buzz about the jazz-soul fusion singer-songwriter and earned the rare feat for a debut CD of a Grammy nod. His follow-up, "Be Good," turned that murmur into a roar (and won a second nom from the Academy), and his fans anxiously anticipated his third LP, "Liquid Spirit." Porter was raised in California and began singing in local jazz clubs while attending San Diego State. Opting to pursue music full time, he moved to Brooklyn and was tapped for the original Broadway cast of the Tony-nominated hit It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues, in a performance that set the stage for his recording career and international stardom. Dinner/Show: $65 Show only: $25.


TORONTO: DAVE YOUNG QUINTET: TRIBUTE TO HORACE SILVER

Toronto-based and Winnipeg-born multiple award-winning bassist and composer Dave Young will perform at THE JAZZ BISTRO (251 Victoria Street, Toronto, ONT, CA - 416-363-5299) on Thursday, Friday & Saturday, January 16th, 17th & 18th at 9:00 pm. He is joined by Gary Williamson - piano, Terry Clarke - drums, Kevin Turcotte - trumpet and Perry White - saxophone. Young is, without a doubt, one of Canada's most valuable and beloved musical exports. Whether he's performing as part of a classical symphony, or as an integral member of an iconic jazz trio (with the likes of the late Oscar Peterson), or leading any of his dynamic ensembles, Dave remains a total musician, with artistic soul in abundance. He first began studying the guitar and violin at age ten, but a turn of events at his first gig (a University dance band) compelled him to pick up the bass. Equally comfortable in the worlds of orchestral classical music and jazz, Dave is a multiple threat. As a classical musician, he has been a member of The Edmonton Symphony, The Winnipeg Symphony and The Hamilton Philharmonic. As a jazz artist, he is a chameleon-like bassist, who often shines brightest in collaborative efforts with other musicians. Because of his technical skill, few bassists (jazz or otherwise) are able to dig in, swing hard and still render a lyrical arco solo as Dave can.

Joan Edgar will serve as Musical Director. The California native is a favorite with cabaret and concert audiences and is known for her sardonic comedic style, wry comments on the ways of the world and an eclectic mix of song selections.

TORONTO: DAVE YOUNG QUINTET: TRIBUTE TO HORACE SILVER

Toronto-based and Winnipeg-born multiple award-winning bassist and composer Dave Young will perform at THE JAZZ BISTRO (251 Victoria Street, Toronto, ONT, CA - 416-363-5299) on Thursday, Friday & Saturday, January 16th, 17th & 18th at 9:00 pm. He is joined by Gary Williamson - piano, Terry Clarke - drums, Kevin Turcotte - trumpet and Perry White - saxophone. Young is, without a doubt, one of Canada's most valuable and beloved musical exports. Whether he's performing as part of a classical symphony, or as an integral member of an iconic jazz trio (with the likes of the late Oscar Peterson), or leading any of his dynamic ensembles, Dave remains a total musician, with artistic soul in abundance. He first began studying the guitar and violin at age ten, but a turn of events at his first gig (a University dance band) compelled him to pick up the bass. Equally comfortable in the worlds of orchestral classical music and jazz, Dave is a multiple threat. As a classical musician, he has been a member of The Edmonton Symphony, The Winnipeg Symphony and The Hamilton Philharmonic. As a jazz artist, he is a chameleon-like bassist, who often shines brightest in collaborative efforts with other musicians. Because of his technical skill, few bassists (jazz or otherwise) are able to dig in, swing hard and still render a lyrical arco solo as Dave can.

D.C.: THE KEVIN PETER JONES ALL STAR BAND

Kevin has worked hard to hone his craft to become one of the premier drummers in the world.

Driven by an explosive mix of jazz, rock, classical , jam band influences and Afro Cuban and world rhythms, "Downbeat" - the first studio album by TIZER, a multi-cultural band led by keyboardist/composer Lao Tizer- throws down a high powered collection of fresh instrumental music from one of today's rising stars of the world-fusion genre. Establishing themselves in the contemporary jazz world over the past few years, TIZER has spurred comparisons of a modern twist to the 70s and early 80s heyday of jazz fusion, when trailblazing ensembles like Return To Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra and Weather Report set the aesthetic standard. Truly embodying the title and spirit of his 2007 solo album "Diversify," Lao assembled a group of veteran world-class musicians to create a dynamic rich with new melodic, harmonic and improvisational possibilities. Co-produced by Lao and guitarist Jeff Kollman, the eclectic set includes five original compositions by Lao and numerous collaborations with his cohorts, including the first single "World In Rhythm," co-written with Emmy winner and Grammy nominated guitarist Chieli Minucci, best known as founder and leader of Special EFX. There is a $20 cover.
