Momentum Developments is proud to sponsor Five Weeks for Miles, a celebration of the career of Miles Davis in support of affordable housing in Downtown Kitchener. Each Saturday in April, Brownman Music will be exploring a different era of Davis’ career at The Boathouse in Victoria Park.
This year, there are five Saturdays in April – a perfect metaphor for the five stages of Davis’ career. Acclaimed trumpeter Bowman Ali will be leading five different bands through Davis’ career, from his early work with Dizzy Gillespie through his entire career.
The five performances are:
Week 1: April 1, 2017 – “Young Miles” The Bird Years
Week 2: April 8, 2017 – “Birth of the Cool and Kind of Blue” Post-Bop Miles
Week 3: April 15, 2017 – “Plugged Nickel” The Shorter Years
Week 4: April 22, 2017 – “From Bitches Brew to Tutu” Electric Miles
Week 5: April 29, 2017 – “Doo-Bop” Had He Lived…
Tickets are $20 and can be either be purchased here or at the door, with proceeds going to support affording housing and shelters in Downtown Kitchener.
Victoria Park is a focal point for great local events year-round, not only in the summer!
