Kevin Dixon & Laine Wyman
KEVIN DIXON and LAINE WYMAN met in the Lakeside Players’ pit band over twenty years ago and hit it off musically from the first time they played together. They formed a jazz ensemble about five years ago with other members of the pit band and became the ‘Almost Known As Jazz Quartet’. For their December 8th ZOLAS live stream concert they will be playing jazz-influenced music from the Almost Known As repertoire.
KEVIN DIXON has been playing piano his whole life. He has been very active with musical theatre in Ottawa for the last 25 years, working on many shows with the Lakeside Players. More recently, he has worked with Kanata Theatre, Suzart, and Orpheus, performing in the band for shows such as ‘Mamma Mia’ and ‘9 to 5’. Kevin plays with the ‘Almost Known As Jazz Quartet’ and enjoys jamming and experimenting with established themes. He is looking forward to his first ZOLAS live stream!
LAINE WYMAN is a sax player and multi-instrumentalist with a love of all types of music. He has participated in a wide variety of musical projects as a sideman or collaborator, and has been a core member of the Lakeside Players’ pit band for almost 25 years. Over the last few years he has played as a founding member with the ‘Almost Known As Jazz Quartet’ as well as in the pit orchestra for successful productions of both ‘Cabaret’ and 9 to 5’, which were staged at Centrepointe Theatre.
