Catch Lust Life Jazz Band at the Bengal Lounge for a great evening of cool jazz,and funky stuff every Saturday night. Featured musicians in The 2015 Victoria International Jazz Festival. Lust Life is a staple of the Victoria music scene. Defying classical description their repertoire stems from the jazz song form, the great American songbook and takes inspiration from jump jazz, blues,funk and swing.

It's not just his deftness & ear as hornplayer & vocalist or his clear aplomb as frontman; on and offstage, Bryn Badel projects "bigger than life" swagger & panache. I will definitely be back to Victoria on a Saturday night to see Bryn and sidemen...More

Enjoy listening to this group play whenever I find myself in Victoria. While having a bite at the Bengal Lounge (the Empress hotel) it is great to have this local talent perform - great atmosphere and enjoyable music.
