Description

On Friday, June 7th we're so excited to welcome Diana Stabel and Ryan Kaefer alongside some rising jazz stars to the Cafe Blackbird stage!

Local songbird Diana Stabel has been gracing Edmonton and area stages for over ten years. Her vocal prowess and passion for many musical styles, spanning musical theatre, jazz, pop and folk has allowed her a variety of opportunities; from playing the role of Mimi in the musical concert version of RENT, performing with Colin James as part of the Colin James & Little Big Band’s Christmas Symphony tour and sharing the stage with Adam Cohen in a concert celebrating his father, Canadian folk legend Leonard Cohen. You may have heard Diana at the La Ronde Revolving Restaurant where she sang for over five years. She has recently joined the local big bands, Gateway Big Band and Capital City Big Band.

Ryan Kaefer is a young yet experienced pianist, who’s passion for music began at a young age. While focusing mainly on jazz, he also specializes in pop, funk, latin, contemporary and rock. Along with piano, he performs on organs and keyboards. Though he does a lot of composition, he is mainly known for his skill and involvement in various jazz bands. Currently, he plays in the Combo Group (based out of the Yardbird Suite), Strathcona High Schools Jazz Ensemble (under the direction of Jerrold Dubyk), and many more small ensembles such as trios and quintets. Involvement in these bands has allowed Ryan to participate in various competitions and festivals, such as the Edmonton International Jazz Festival and Jazzworks.

Kaleb Belcourt is a young Metis guitarist based in Edmonton. His passion for music has allowed him to explore many genres including jazz, pop, electronic, and hip hop among others. Kaleb recently received the Cultural Diversity in the Arts grant from the city of Edmonton. On this project he plans to write and produce an EP combining elements of jazz, electronic, and Indigenous music. He is an active member of the Littlebirds Big Band and Combo based in the Yardbird Suite. This has allowed him to participate in festivals such as the Edmonton International Jazz Festival and Jazzworks. He is planning to use the skills he has learned to attend MacEwan University and study Jazz and Contemporary music in the fall.
