Jam at Cafe Kali in Verdun

Last night was our 2nd edition of the Jam and it was a truly good time. The musicians work very well together, the people love the casual environment and it all comes together nicely.  Wally Dae is one of the greatest unknown singer songwriters of our time so it is a particular pleasure to have him as our Special Guest for the month of November. The Jam is every Friday at 6 pm at Cafe Kali – 5200 Verdun (corner Desmarchais) Metro Verdun. Did I mention that it is free?

I belong to the local artist’s association, Empreintes d’artistes, and the Jam is our first weekly event. In the coming days we will will be setting up an art boutique at Cafe Kali and the general public is invited to come in and check out a very eclectic range of art, hand made items, and more. The Grand Opening of the boutique is on November 27 at 5, and there will be a Jam that night as well. Hope to see you there!

It’s an intimate space with surprisingly good acoustics.

These people know a dance floor when they see one.


Some artists were bringing in their work for the boutique so we had the jam in a room filled with creativity, very inspiring!

Sound quality is not so good with this camera but it’s really nice live.

And the Jam is a moveable feast.

Jam apres Jam.

With Valerie Lamirande. Val is a stained glass artist and, as President, the driving force behind Empreintes d’artistes. Without her none of this cool stuff happens. Thanks, Val!!
