“A guitar player of unbridled musical ingenuity. Few musicians—especially guitarists and oud players—have a vision as broad and seemingly limitless as him.” ~World Music Report

“Gordon Grdina has managed to place a finger in every corner of the jazz/world fusion room." ~Pop Matters

Juno-winning Vancouver-based Oud/Guitarist Gordon Grdina is known for his incredible versatility and ability to bring a fresh and edgy vibe to any ensemble he joins or forms. His sound is a combination of his interests in mainstream jazz, free-form improvisation and Arabic classical music. A protégé of jazz great Gary Peacock, he is a well-respected contributor to the jazz and world music scenes and is constantly being sought out for new projects. His latest ensemble, the Gordon Grdina Quartet is inspired by the complexity of Bartok, the freedom of Ornette Coleman, the intensity of Soundgarden and the delicacy of Webern. His carefully formed quartet combines the traditions of jazz improvisation, complex and memorable compositions and a dynamic freedom to the music that ebbs and flows with each tune. With Oscar Noriega saxophone, Russ Lossing piano and Satoshi Takeishi drums.

Featuring Jeremy Quiroga and Theron Parker with host Nat Wilson.

Come and see another Epic Jam on Saturday, April 8, 2017 featuring Jeremy Quiroga and Theron Parker! They are sure to deliver a magnificent performance in ASL.

Our goal is to revitalize the Deaf cultural gathering, where the Deaf community can share poems and tell stories in American Sign Language (ASL). This is part of a long-time tradition that has passed down from Deaf Clubs and Deaf schools through several generations. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to see, support and develop a larger pool of performers and poets who celebrate ASL. The audience will be encouraged to interact and, in the process, develop an appreciation for why ASL literature is so deeply valued in the Deaf community.

Jeremy Quiroga has been involved with acting since grammar school and continues to feed off the addiction. Since 1997 when he helped propel Deaf Poets’ Society at the Blue Moon Tavern in Seattle, he has performed ASL literature professionally on a national scale. With a Masters in Fine Arts from the School for American Crafts at R.I.T. in Metal sculpture, art in all its forms has become a consuming passion for Jeremy. Inspiration comes from sharing his appreciation of nature in the great Pacific Northwest with his wife, Annette, and the many adventures they take with their dogs.

Theron Parker leads a notable career as a performer, instructor and presenter. Theron, renowned for his ABC stories, has produced four DVDs: In the Minds of Ed and Theron, Have ASL, Will Travel: Fables from Around the World, Folklore from Around the World, and Little Deaf Spies. Theron also appeared in Forget Me Not, and served as an assistant producer for ASL Films. Theron also was part of Illusion of ASL, a deaf theater group, for five years. A certified Baby Signs instructor, he teaches literacy through ASL for his non-profit organization, ABC ASL, working with children and parents. For Theron, ASL storytelling is the most beautiful music imaginable, With its natural beauty and expressiveness, he aspires to expose ASL to many generations of deaf children and hearing people as possible.

Hosting the evening with his heartwarming energy inviting audience participation is Nat Wilson. Nat is a National Theater of the Deaf Alum, storyteller, comedian, and host for festivals and events celebrating ASL and Deaf culture.

Consider Epic Jam your “open stage” opportunity to share your poems and stories! Come and join us!
