A special augmented lineup of the Jen Hodge All Stars will kick off Canada Day on Granville Island, which is also part of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, at the Ron Basford Park Stage. Come early to get a good spot on the grass! In addition to the usual lineup of yours truly on bass; Evan Arntzen on clarinet, saxophones, and vocals; Bonnie Northgraves on trumpet and vocals; and Dave Taylor on guitar, you will hear Andrew Millar on drums and Nick LaRiviere on trombone, who will be joining us from Victoria. I am SO EXCITED to make music with this amazing band on Canada Day! See you there!
