The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Hosts Nightly Jazz Jams for Whistler Jazz Festival

"Watch this message by Russ Freeman from The Rippingtons who is very much looking forward to playing Whistler Olympic Plaza Sept 3rd @ 6pm."
This Labour Day weekend, the end-of-summer blues sing a happy tune as Canada’s newest jazz festival hits town;Jazz On The Mountain At Whistler.  Nestled in the spectacular mountains of Whistler, this celebration of jazz, culture and entertainment promises to captivate spectators of all ages.  Escape the city commotion for the long weekend and listen to jazz icons such as Stanley Jordan, Kevin Eubanks and The New Gary Burton Quartet.  With over thirty free and ticketed shows from top international and Canadian artists, daily concerts and street entertainment throughout Whistler village, both jazz aficionados and music fans alike will delight in this three-day event. 

"We look forward to Spyro Gyra's performance @ Whistler Olympic Plaza Sunday, Sept 4th. Check out this behind the scenes video of the recording of the band's new CD "A Foreign Affair".

After the events at Whistler Olympic Plaza wrap up each night, sensational jazz continues from 10pm to 1am with The Mallard Lounge Jazz Jams atThe Fairmont Chateau Whistler.  This ultra swank after-party will serve up smoking hot improv jazz each night of the festival.  The world-class Jazz On The Mountain At Whistler House Band will perform nightly joined by some of the Festival's top musicians and headliners.  Sit back and experience once-in-a-lifetime, up-close performances in the Mallard Lounge’s intimate setting.  Be sure to get there early as these free performances are guaranteed to fill up fast.

"What is Stanley Jordan known for? Yes, that's right! His amazing "touch" or "tap" technique on the guitar. Check out this video from one of his part performances on The Late Show with David Letterman. An oldie but a goodie."

As the festival’s leading accommodation partner, The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is thrilled to offer a special jazz festival package over September 2-4, 2011, including two nights of luxury Whistler resort accommodations and three-day Jazz On The Mountain passes for two.
