Florian Hoefner Group

Touring in support of their third full-length album Luminosity that was released earlier this month, the Florian Hoefner Group is in Regina to play a show at LeBistro (3850 Hillsdale) on Sunday Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. The concert is presented by the Regina Jazz Society, and includes back-up act Seamus Blake.

According to his bio, band leader Florian Hoefner began his musical studies in Bavaria, and later received a Fulbright Scholarship to complete his Masters in Music at the Manhattan School of Music in New York. Hoefner is currently based in Newfoundland, and as a jazz pianist and composer, has sat in on many recordings, toured widely throughout Europe and North America, and played top-line jazz festivals around the world. So if you’re a jazz fan this is a must-see show.
