Jazz….swing…alternative country…folk. Whatever your cup of tea, The Polyjesters will deliver it with a heaping spoonful of sugar at the Empress Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.
Describing themselves as “a fun, genre confused group of musicians that love to perform”, The Polyjesters are a musically-eclectic, highly energetic, unfailingly entertaining quartet. Now located in Carstairs, AB, founding brothers Jason and Sheldon Valleau honed their musical talents during their upbringing in northern Alberta before heading to Europe to busk on the streets and play for the Prince of Monaco.
It’s been a bumpy, twisting road since then, filled with adventures, great stories and music whose influences range from Billie Holiday to The Beatles, and many points in between. The Polyjesters have a unique sound that is appealing to a wide range of musical tastes.
Band members Jason Valleau, Sheldon Valleau, Aaron Young and Jon May play an assortment of instruments, including the upright bass, baritone ukulele and potentially any combination of fiddle, percussion and guitar.
Their songs mix styles alongside harmonies, and their funny, original lyrics, delivered with the band’s trademark vibrancy, will leave you laughing and humming their catchy choruses long after the concert is finished. Join us for a night of comedy song at the Empress, the fourth concert of our 2017 – 2018 Centre Stage series.
