Music fans can revel in a holiday jazz concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 19, at Vashon Center for the Arts.

The concert will feature a double bill — Sundae + Mr. Goessl and Birch Pereira & The Gin Joints — playing seasonal favorites and vintage jazz selections.

Voted Best Jazz Act of 2017 by Seattle Weekly, Sundae + Mr. Goessl are rising stars in the Northwest jazz scene. In 2016, Earshot Jazz recognized singer Kate Voss with a “Golden Ear Award” for Northwest Vocalist of the Year. Goessl plays finger-style guitar.

Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints bills itself as a band with a sound that hearkens back to the time of speakeasies, honky-tonks and roadhouses. The band’s debut album, “Dream Man,” was released independently and received the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for “Northwest Jazz Recording of the Year” in 2016. Pereira and his players have gigged up and down the West Coast and has also played clubs as far afield as New York City and New Orleans. Their second album “Western Soul,” which features western-tinged jazz and soul originals, was released in March 2018 and has received steady airplay on a diverse array of stations in the Northwest, including KEXP.

The concert will be preceded by a “Jazz Appetizer” in VCA’s Koch Gallery, featuring live music, appetizers, and art.

Advance tickets, on sale at vashoncenterforthearts, are $5 for students, $16 for members, $18 for seniors, and $20 general. All tickets at the door cost $24.
