About This Event

ONE SHOW: 6:00pm

Legendary saxophonist Cory Weeds will be holding a Masterclass at The Nash on Monday, February 13th for all interested parties. Cory is more than just an outstanding musician, he is also an accomplished businessman. Bring your questions and be prepared to learn about a wide variety of jazz-related topics.

Cory Weeds may be best known as the founder and owner of Cory Weeds’ Cellar Jazz Club in Vancouver, which he successfully ran for more than 14 years. Weeds built the Cellar to become one of North America’s best Jazz clubs, where masters such as George Coleman, Jeff Hamilton, Louis Hayes, David “Fathead” Newman, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and the finest Jazz musicians from Vancouver and across Canada and the U.S. performed before it closed in February 2014.

But he wasn’t just the club owner. As a saxophonist who studied at the University of North Texas and Capilano University, Weeds spent many nights on the Cellar bandstand as a leader and sideman. He held his own when performing with icons like Joey DeFrancesco and Christian McBride. Weeds has also recorded nineteen albums as a leader.
