Coming Soon! The 12th Annual APRIL IN PARIS: A Festival of Gypsy Jazz

At the St. James Hall, April 26th, 27th and 28th
Django Reinhardt’s Gypsy jazz has been described as “the most fun you can have sitting down with your clothes on”. We will prove this three times over when we present April in Paris! This wonderful event features Vancouver perennial favourites Van Django and the Company B Jazz Band, Seattle imports Ranger & the Re-Arrangers and Pearl Django, Hornby Island’s Marc Atkinson Trio, Michael Dunn’s latest outfit The Lawless Hot Club, and local upstarts Django’s Jewels. A fantastic time is bound to ensue. See the Concert Calendar for more details.

Coming Soon! The 2nd Annual HORNBY BLUES Concert

At the WISE Hall, May 6th
The Hornby Island Blues Workshop takes place every spring. They invite a dozen or so of the finest Canadian blues and roots musicians around to share their knowledge and inspiration with some lucky students. We thought - why not catch some of these great players, singers and all-round entertainers, and get them to do a show for us on the way to Hornby Island? One of Vancouver's own Paul Pigat, teams up with pianist David Vest, a master from Victoria and two of the best from Ontario - Samantha Martin and Rick Fines. It's a simple but foolproof formula. Last year was great - this year is going to be even better! See the Concert Calendar for more details.
