Boise’s Own Home Grown Jazz!

2019 Boise Music Week’s Home-grown Jazz Night will set the week swinging.

The musical feast begins with The Van Paepeghem Quintet: Shirley Van Paepeghem on vocals, Mike Rosenthal on piano, Mike Seifrit on bass, Patrick Kurdy on drums and Quinn Van Paepeghem on guitar. From their Boise roots, they have played from Disneyland to Sandpoint, Idaho and everything in between.  Audiences will love their classic jazz vibe.  They will also be the instrumental behind two up and coming student jazz singers:  David Le and Robyn O’Donahue.  Boise will want to keep these student performers on their jazz radar.

The DC3, a jazz combo led by Dan Costello on guitar and vocals, featuring Troy Ferguson on upright bass and Grant Green on percussion, will serve up a yummy jive for the next course. Costello is a full-flavored singer-songwriter and performer in the Boise music scene, and always brings something unique to the table.

No musical feast is complete without dessert.  Emily Braden Quartet, our home-grown, Manhattan-based jazz artist, starts out her bio:  The big, bad beauty from Boise. [Gotta love it!] Her bio includes:  Winner of New York City’s ‘Best of the Best’ Jazzmobile Vocal Competition and says she’s: . . . on her path to global recognition as a great jazz vocalist.  Her quartet includes, Tom Jensen on bass, Justin Nielsen on Piano and Will Friend on drums. Boise audiences are in for a “gourmet dessert” for the soul.

These home-grown professionals are laying out this jazz feast, with Jim Duthie of KTVB as MC, on Saturday, May 4th at 7:00 PM in Borah High School auditorium.

Borah High School Auditorium
6001 W Cassia St, Boise, ID 83709


Saturday – May 4th, 2019


The Auditorium is on the far west of the high school (South of the tennis courts). You may park in any of the lots but the west lot will provide you the least walking distance. Passengers can be dropped off near the entrance but can create congestion if the driver tries to turn around instead of driving all the way around the high school.
