Fresh off of his triumphant sold-out concert at Massey Hall in Toronto, JUNO Award winning Michael Kaeshammer brings his own signature style of music that’s “more infectious than the flu” to Calgary for a one-night only engagement. Canadian-German pianist, vocalist, composer, arranger, and producer, he can’t wait to play for you in the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
Michael Kaeshammer grew up learning classical piano and not necessarily being inspired by the content. But at age 13, he discovered boogie-woogie and jazz and dove in headfirst. Now, with two JUNO Awards, he is following his passion, and inviting us to tap our toes along with him.
A night with Michael and his band isn’t the kind of show where you just sit, watch, and applaud politely now and then. A true showman, his live performances are a wild ride with no fixed destination. Representing Canada as one of our country’s leading jazz musicians, join Michael Kaeshammer in celebrating Canada’s 150th and enjoy this brilliant stage performance!
“This is music more infectious than the flu.” – C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz

Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the future replacement of all of its seats to be completed by fall 2017.
