The Beautiful Maladies have been bringing the music of Tom Waits to live audiences since 2015. With continual sold-out shows at Hermann’s Jazz Club, the band is now touring Vancouver Island, with eyes on the mainland.
The band is comprised of Kelly Fawcett, Aaron Watson, Brooke Maxwell, Peter Dowse and Matt Pease, who each bring their own individual loves and interpretations of Waits’ music to each show. This is not simply a band impersonating an amazing Tom Waits’ performance, but a group of seasoned pro musicians, who each showcase their own talents through this iconic music.
The Arts on View Society was incorporated in December 2016 for the purpose of preserving Hermann’s Jazz Club and continuing to enhance the public’s appreciation of jazz, blues and world music through all-ages live performance. As the longest continuous running jazz club in Canada, Hermann’s has been at the forefront of providing the opportunity for local and visiting musicians to showcase their talents and hone their skills for the past 40 years.
The Arts on View Society operates Hermann’s Jazz Club, Hermann’s Upstairs, and the View Street Social.
