Valet is a Guelph-based jazz quartet, that consists of 4 students from Centennial CVI. The group features Jakob Durst on tenor saxophone, Tristan Culbert on piano, Josh Collesso on bass, and Andrew Schoettler on drums. Valet came into formation after the group performed as part of a school function, where they quickly gathered a crowd of engaged students, teachers and parents. After the event was over, the four young musicians were ecstatic to continue playing with one another, and thus Valet was formed. Under the guidance of some of Guelph’s finest musicians, Valet hopes to create interest in the vibrant jazz music of the past Century. The group plays with an excitement that brings a refreshing energy to the music, while still paying tribute the greats. Their performance features music from a variety of genres, such as Swing, Latin, Soul, and Be-Bop.
