Free.Wednesday October 07— 8:00: Kitchener-Waterloo ChamberMusic Society. Moshe Hammer, violin;Robert Kortgaard, piano. Mendelssohn: ViolinConcerto; Jewish music tba. KWCMS MusicRoom, 57 Young St. W., Waterloo. 519-886-1673. ; (sr); (st).Steve WardCurrently enrolled in the Jazz Performance Masters program atthe University of Toronto, Ward maintains a busy schedule as a performer,composer and teacher. I emailed Ward some questions aboutbooking the room.How did the music policy at the Tequila Bookworm come to be?I started booking jazz here last July, and originally I was booking oneact a week. Eventually the owner and I agreed to expand the policyto three nights a week, and now four. The rent is extremely high onQueen St W so therefore it was hard to get any money out of Tequilafor the bands, etc which is why we have pay-what-you-can shows.What are musical characteristics you look for when booking?Enthusiasm, sincerity, creativity. Artists looking to evolve creativelyin a live setting, that aren’t looking for a brainless jobber.What are the greatest strengths of the room itself?Since I have no financial quota to fill I’m able to be adventurous withmy programming. I’m interested in an environment where ideas areshared and challenged. Culture! The arts! It’s time.What are some of the challenges of the room?One of the biggest challenges is communicating with the audience.Since we’re playing for the tip jar it is important to be able to communicatewith our audience and give them context of why we’re makingthe music that we are. Most times its types of music they havelittle knowledge of, so it’s time to educate!Three acts you would recommend to readers for this month and why?Tuesday September 8th: Lee Mason (from Amsterdam). Its alwayscool when a group from another part of the world wants to put ona show at a venue you book. Very interesting sounds. Shouldn’t bemissed. September 12: Chris Cawthray Trio. Its going to be a CDrelease, & I’m proud that Chris decided to have it at Tequila. Theygroove hard. www.chriscawthray.comFriday September 25: MiMo. These guys are great!!!
