Chafafa: Eugene Nep

‘Chafafa’ coming to Sooke Hilltop House concert

Those looking for some local jazzy entertainment towards the end of September, well, you're in luck.

If you’d hear the name Chafafa, you’d think it’s some kind of exotic meal, or a type of radiator-sealant.

But, you’d be wrong, because they are in fact a talented quartet who just happen to have a unique talent of combining lounge, Latin and funky rhythms laced with jazzy overtones.

A fine recipe indeed, and one that we’ll be sure to see on Sept. 26 at the Hilltop House Concerts located on Mountainview Road (just off Otter Point).

Doors are at 7:30 p.m., with the show beginning at 8 p.m. Light refreshments served. Children are welcome.

Entrance is by donation ($0 to $20) kids under 12 free.  A portion of donations will go to a local charity.

The band has played at the Royal B.C. Museum and recorded its first CD “Live at Merlin’s Sun” in Oak Bay in March 2014 and performed at the Herman’s Jazz Club in Victoria.

To reserve seats for the event, call 250-642-0949 in advance.
