Today is the first day that Hermann’s Jazz Club and the View Street Social Club (next door) are being managed by the Arts On View Society. The change in operations was secured through a five-year, renewable lease with the estate of Hermann Nieweler.

 

Tuesday, July 16, starting at 7:30 pm, the Phatfunks offer the first live performance at Hermann’s Jazz Club, 753 View Street, under the management of Arts On View. The Phatfunks a dynamic young band of emerging musicians, are kicking off a new, bi-weekly summer funk series every other Tuesday night at Hermann’s all-ages venue. 

 

Media are welcome to attend this historic night.

 

“We are delighted to take this essential step in our journey,” said interim executive director Nichola Walkden. “Hermann’s Jazz Club is the longest continuously-operating jazz club in Canada and we are thankful that the community’s generosity has kept Hermann’s alive, vibrant and growing.” Hermann’s was voted “Best Nightclub” by Times Colonist readers earlier this year. 

 

In addition to making improvements to the two clubs, Arts On View is working to open the upstairs venues for its vision of a non-profit owned performing and visual arts centre.
