Crowd favourites Redline Trio, comprised of drummer Jeffrey Sulima, bassist Stephen Shepard, and saxophonist Mark DeJong, return to artsPlace with Juno-nominated vocalist & pianist Joanna Borromeo and Calgary trumpet player & guitarist David Lavoie.

Formed in the distant reaches of a secret hideaway, Redline Trio brings to life an attitude of a bygone era with a modern perspective.

Drummer Jeff Sulima honed his skills in the legendary Vancouver music scene, taking his musicianship across the ocean, holding down residencies in Europe and Asia. A consummate accompanist, Jeff can deftly shape the turn of a phrase with his nuanced percussive palate, and just as easily light the room on fire with his thundering mallets and driving kick drum.

Bassist Steve Shepard has a singular vision for rhythmic interaction, tonal variety and stretching harmonic boundaries. His stage presence draws in listeners and fellow musicians alike, while his creativity on and off the bandstand gives Redline Trio a foundation of epic yet elastic proportions.

Saxophonist Mark DeJong reflects a compelling juxtaposition of tradition with modernity. His musical explorations have literally taken him around the globe and those experiences inform a healthy respect for tradition while balancing the adventurousness of a trailblazer. His saxophone wails, roars and cajoles the sweetest of sonorities.
