The Thom's Experiment

by Hilary Prince

The Thoms' Experiment is a must for jazz buffs this summer. Ian Thoms on guitar, Chris Driscoll on drums, and Patrick Reid on upright bass played at the Lobster Trap, Shaws Hotel last month and give ongoing performances as part of the City Stages Festival on Victoria Row and Peakes Quay where you can catch Ian on Tuesdays to Sundays, 7:30 to l0:00 pm, Victoria Row, and Chris on Thursdays through Sundays, 5:00 to 7:15, Victoria Row, and Pat and Chris, Mondays 7:30 to 10:00, Victoria Row. Check the newspaper for Peakes Quay events.

A recent graduate from McGill with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, Ian put the trio together and credits former Queen Charlotte teachers Rowan Fitzgerald and Roger Jabbour for his enthusiasm and commitment, especially to jazz. "We had a lot of support from the school system," Ian, who also has math teaching aspirations explains. Chris and Pat who continue their music degree at McGill in the fall agree. "There is a lot of interest in jazz," Ian added. "We're trying to tap into the jazz scene."

This young, already extremely accomplished trio should have no trouble accomplishing their goals. They are dedicated, well-trained, and above all enthusiastic about jazz. Don't miss at least one performance; you'll want to go back for more.
