Spencer Evans

For over fifteen years entertainer Spencer Evans has been performing on the piano, clarinet and accordion. He has played from Bermuda to Bosnia, New Orleans to the North Pole, has recorded and toured with Sarah Harmer and Pat Temple, and has performed with Jeff Healey, Dan Aykroyd, Willie P. Bennett, Jack Mahieu and Toronto’s Swing Gang, among countless others.

Spencer has also appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBC Radio’s The Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean, MUCHmusic and CMT. A resident of Kingston for several years, he keeps busy playing with numerous local bands such as Bloom, Pico de Gallo, Ghetto Xpress, The River Cats and various jazzy combos.

In recent years, Spencer has been adding his talented piano accompaniment to screenings of movies from the 1920’s Silent Film era. At our Kingston RCCO Festival 2016, as a pre-conference event, he will accompany Harold Lloyd’s Safety Last, one of the finest films of the silent movie era. This event will take place at 8:00 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room on the second floor of the Four Points Sheraton Hotel, just off the Limestone Foyer where Festival Registration will be taking place.

Later in the week, Spencer’s Jazz combo will also entertain us during our Wednesday afternoon banquet aboard a boat cruise of the Thousand Islands.
