Jeff Gladstone is a pretty amazing performer and artist. He’s a fantastic improvisor, a terrific actor, a musician and he’s known for being a bit of a flirt. I’m going to his CD release this Saturday and you should too. It’s going to be the most theatrical CD release you’ve ever been to. Here’s info for ya:

Vancouver actor and musician Jeff Gladstone will collaborate with over 30 local musicians, including The Bad Ideas and the Kingsgate Chorus, to bring his debut album ‘Hell Of A Girl’ to life on April 19th at the Rio Theatre.
Described as part Cowboy Opera, part Film Noir, and part Moulin Rouge the production, inspired by the myth of Orpheus & Eurydice, is guaranteed to be the most unique CD release performance of 2014.
“They’re like shaky junkie tunes, like you might leap off the stage and attack us.”
– Al Willows, actor & drummer
The show will feature Todd Biffard on drums (Maria In The Shower), Steve Charles on guitar (Viper Central, Chelsea Hotel), Bonnie Northgraves (Jen Hodge All Stars) and special guests Bruce Horak (Assassinating Thomson), Onalea Gilbertson (One Yellow Rabbit), Kelly Haigh and The Murderbirds, and The Kingsgate Chorus.
‘Hell Of A Girl’, funded in part by a Kickstarter campaign, was written by Jeff Gladstone and produced by Terra Hazelton (Jeff Healey’s Jazz Wizards, FUBAR II). It features some of the most talented musicians in Toronto’s jazz scene including Drew Jurecka, Sophia Perlman, Richard Whiteman, Nathan Hiltz, Sly Juhas, Rachel Pomedli, Tim Hamel, Jay Danley and James Thomson.
Prior to embarking on his musical career Jeff Gladstone was nominated for Jessie Richardson awards for writing and acting and for a Canadian Comedy Award.
