Wednesday Night Jam w/ Brooke Wylie & special guest Jay Gilday!!!
9:00 pm - no cover
I have had the ultimate pleasure of hearing Jay Gilday sing and play at Harry Greggs Jam nights in Edmonton. I know I am late to the game, but I believe so strongly that Jay is among the greatest Alberta talent I have ever heard. I am so excited that he has agreed to join us as our special guest at the jam for October!
ALSO!!! This will be Tyler Allen’s second annual birthday party with us - he will be playing guitar in the House band!!! It’s gonna be a massive party!!
“At once elemental and unearthly, Jay Gilday’s voice is a raw and gorgeous siren of the Canadian north, fusing hymnal anguish with driving rhythm and blues. And he is about to inscribe a special chapter in Canadian music history.
Whether on the main stage of a summer festival or headlining a shadowy cabaret, Jay captivates. He is equally arresting as a solo performer, crooning over acoustic guitar and piano, as the front-man of an eight-piece rock band, baiting dance floors with infectious hooks and boundless energy.
What sets Jay apart is the unfailing authenticity that accompanies his rare talents. His craft is unfettered by pageantry or put-on, and the intensity of his delivery is a product of conviction, rather than coaching.
Jay Gilday has a rare convergence of skills in the world of singer-songwriters. His neatly trimmed and powerful turns of phrase, an ability to pull the listener into a particularly vivid experience, and a warm vocal instrument coupled with an always dynamic, and at time explosive instrumental foundation, make for a formidable and complete skill set. He’s rooted in the singer-songwriter tradition but unique…Jay Gilday stands out from the pack.”
