Recognized as one of the foremost vocal interpreters of jazz and standards on the Canadian scene, George Evans has been celebrated diversely as “a ballad’s best friend” (All-Canadian Jazz Festival) and “an agile voice and always swinging” (National Post). He has been praised for lively, polished performances in cities such as New York, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Shanghai. Since 1997 George has released a total of seven CDs as a leader, plus a ballad compilation. The current album, “LIVE at the Cellar” has been heard on jazz outlets on five continents.

Getting his start in the New York Cabaret scene of the 80s, George became a part of the Montréal club scene of the 90s. Introduced to Canadian jazz fans by Katie Malloch on CBC’s JazzBeat, George went on to perform nationally, playing nightclubs and festivals. He first appeared before Toronto jazz audiences in 1999 with the launch of his second album (I’m All Smiles) at the Top o’ the Senator. Evans appeared there with regularity through the launch of his fifth album (Movie Songs) in 2005.

George Evans will soon be wending his way to Saskatchewan where he will take up residence for the foreseeable future.  We thought it was only right that George would have his last vocal engagement as a Toronto resident at the address that has over the years  welcomed his considerable talent as part of the permanent roster.
