Two jazz musicians will be served up Saturday at the second show of the Evergreen Cultural Centre's Music on the Grill series.
The double-bill concert will open with vocalist and pianist Jesse Peters, who has been on the jazz scene for 13 years and has penned songs since he was in high school.
By the age of 21, his band, the Peters Drury Trio, had released two critically acclaimed recordings. Peters also performs with his funksoul group, Paramedic. Recently, he unveiled Face Time, a return to his jazz roots.
North Vancouver native and Juno-award winner Brandi Disterheft is also a music protege, having started her career in her teens with her mom, jazz pianist Fran Jare, who will join her daughter on the Coquitlam stage.
Disterheft was a soloist with Canada's Pop Orchestra at 21 and has studied with some of the jazz greats in New York, including Ron Carter.
The barbecue dinner for Music on the Grill on July 9 starts at 7 p.m. with the show at 8 p.m.
