The Galen Weston Band, with their electric live performance of intense jazz rock jams, which showcase Weston’s stinging guitar lines on his yellow Fender Stratocaster, has just returned with accolades from their inaugural Italian tour. We are now completing the Spring 2020 tour schedule revolving around the Bremen Jazzahead Music Festival. Galen Weston’s jazz-rock and jazz fusion compositions continue to be met with positive reviews from fans and media alike and his fan base, which has reached 37K Facebook subscribers alone and 50K of album downloads globally.
After a stunning debut album, Plugged In, Galen Weston Band embarked on extensive US and Europe tours including opening for the Gipsy Kings’ on a 20-city North American summer tour before, and a stunning performance alongside David Sanborn at the Port Dover International Jazz Festival. The new album, The Space Between produced by Steve Rodby (14 time Grammy winner), with songs alternating all the way from poignant ballads to Afro-Cuban jams, was released to a growing international following, which saw the band revisit the US, Britain, Austria, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Czech Republic, and China and included performances at the Elegance Cafe (Rome), Sunset Sunside Jazz Club (Paris), Porgy & Bess (Vienna), A Trane and Quasimodo Club (Berlin), the Reduta Jazz Club (Prague), the Harlem Jazz Club (Barcelona), JZ Clubs and JZ Jazz Festival (China), among others. Galen Weston’s band features fellow Canadian musicians Richard Underhill on alto sax, Matt Horner on piano, Lukas Kytnar on electric bass, and Michel Medrano Brindis on drums and Latin percussion.
