THE MAD AFFAIR

French Jazz

 
 

The art of the piano duo

Tilden Webb is one of the most in-demand musicians in Canada. He has been featured on more than 20 CDs alongside such musicians as Ray Brown, Ed Thigpen, John Clayton, Jeff Hamilton, David Murray, Guido Basso and Dave Young.
Originally from Regina, Saskatchewan, Tilden began studying classical piano at the age of 8. His subsequent interest in jazz led him to Montreal in 1988 to study at McGill University. He was a member of the award winning McGill Jazz Ensemble at the age of 17 where he had the opportunity to play with Dave Liebman and Rob McConnell. After receiving his B. Mus., Tilden worked as a freelance musician and then returned to McGill in 1994 where he obtained his M. Mus. in Jazz Piano Performance.

ALANNAH LORI

The Celebration of Romantic Love

Alannah Lori is a singer/songwriter from Paris whose passion for music was born from listening to her father, a classical guitar player who loved bossa nova.
Classically trained pianist and singer, her love for English language and music led her early in life to perform pop rock covers (Alanis Morissette, Annie Lennox, Amanda Marshall…) but in Jazz, inspired by Nina Simone, Ella Fitzerald, Diana Krall and Barbra Streisand, she found her voice, one that’s versatile and transports emotion.
From her French roots and love for the standards was born "The Mad Affair", a unique blend of Jazz and French music; a repertoire that is sexy and vibrant, with a smooth and smoky sound.

Great experience and great voice

Such a joy to work with. Flexible, friendly, and professional. Best possible experience.

They were prompt, and very talented. The music filled the gallery space and created the atmosphere that we wanted. I would book them again without hesitation.

"Alannah Lori and Andrew Stack are an amazing duo.
Alannah has been singing in Vancouver for
several years. She is a rare talented jazz and
pop vocalist. Andrew is a genius guitarist.
They are perfectonists and create an evening
of romance, an ambiance, and take you away to
another exotic place. I highly recommend their
performance to any one who is looking for
musicians."

crooning French ballads and

other songs

with great sensuous appeal. 

A lovely presence in her red dress

and sparkling eyes,

Alannah charms us all."
