SHPIK

SHPIK LIVE .png

Opening the second edition of the Tofino Jazz Festival, this band from Montreal, winner of the TD Jazz Grand Prize at the 2018 Montreal International Jazz Festival will offer you one memorable concert. Comprised of pianist and composer Arnaud Spick-Saucier, contrabassist Étienne Dextraze and drummer Philippe Lussier-Baillargeon, SHPIK’s music evokes the great outdoors, self-discovery, and navigating between the immensity and the infinitely small parts of the universe. Their first album presents a puzzling trip full of theatricality. With their inspired effects pedals, SHPIK brings an aerial touch to the music.

Born in Quebec of French parents, Arnaud studied jazz piano at the Cégep de Sherbrooke and at UQAM. He was then accompanied by Étienne and Philippe, and they were ready to hit the stage as SHPIK. SHPIK creates bold and fluid music, full of soft twists and turns. Bringing a breath of fresh air to the music with their effects and inspired poetry, their sound is both blues-inspired and soothing, smooth and spirited. They put forth an accessible jazz without being cutesy, but one that is cinematic and experimental.

Doors at 8:00pm, Concert at 8:30pm.
