Wed-Sat, Sept 8-11

Beat Niq Jazz & Social Club Hosts Membership Gala

Owners Connie and Rob Young are known as a dynamic, hard-working and forward thinking couple who are dedicated to fine dining and jazz. Building Calgary’s premier jazz club many moons ago, the pair’s efforts have provided citizens and tourists alike a first-class jazz experience in the heart of the city.

Beat Niq and its owners discovered how very much they’re appreciated last year when the jazz community rallied to help them keep the doors open during tough economic times in the city. The bid was successful and the club keeps on, presenting some of the finest in local, regional and international jazz by way of selling memberships to jazz fans.

The 2010 Beat Niq Jazz Gala is an opportunity for those who’ve invested to renew their support while enjoying three nights of top-notch jazz. The special program includes Calgary’s most recognized artists over three days, providing something for fans of every style and genre.
