Steven Taetz Ensemble at Lacombe Memorial Centre
Steven Taetz swings into spring with Western Canadian Tour
Steven Taetz creates and performs swing, jazz, and traditional pop music surrounded by an ensemble of talented musicians in the tradition of Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, and Chet Baker. The Toronto-based, former Calgarian’s new album Drink You In debuted at #3 on iTunes jazz charts and has been heard on radio stations worldwide. The album features leading Canadian jazz musicians, including JUNO-winning artists such as Sonia Johnson, Adrean Farrugia, Kevin Turcotte, John Macleod and Ernesto Cervini.
Top international publications, including JazzTimes, have called the album “a heady cocktail of standards and originals,” “a sheer delight,” and “irresistible.”

“For fans of crooners like Michael Bublé and Harry Connick, Jr. who also still listen to Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, there is now Steven Taetz. The right warm voice bends, a vintage musical accompaniment, that exotic aroma and the perfect dress code, everything is there. The man also writes lyrics with an ironic sensual undertone that fit perfectly in this context. Irresistible!”
