Nick Mintenko Quartet

After a rich education in jazz music, Nick Mintenko takes his first step as a bandleader in jazz. He has had the privilege of joining many friends in playing the restaurant circuit in Victoria, and playing main stages at British Columbia’s jazz festivals, all as a sideman, bassist, guitarist, and singer. Now he is so thrilled to present music by his favourite composers, Django Reinhardt, Duke Ellington, Gershwin, Nat King Cole, and more. Nick is joined by two of his great friends in music, Mitchell Green on guitar, and Quin Etheridge-Pedden on Violin. Anchoring the group on bass is Victoria stalwart Joey Smith, who was also Nick’s teacher and mentor from the Victoria Conservatory of music.
