What we're about

THE DEFINITION OF JAZZ " Man, if you gotta ask you'll never know" - Louis Armstrong

When two or more people play musical instruments together, with or without a vocal accompaniment and are perfectly on-beat, never missing a note or going off tempo in any way. The Expression "in the pocket" most commonly refers to the musical genres of jazz, blues, bluegrass and flamenco.

Vancouver is home to an amazing live music scene, with an assortment of venues that provide an intimate & affordable way to experience jazz, blues, & other genres as they are meant to be: spontaneous, inventive & alive.

So join us and use this Meetup group to connect with other music fans. We are mainly about listening to live jazz, but we also post blues, world music, & cross genre.

Please only RSVP if you're sure you can attend an event and if you find you can't make it for some reason, please change your RSVP to No. It makes the Event Host's life a lot easier not having to look out for members, and we sometimes have to reserve seats at events. Our reputation as a group or a host can be damaged if we don't fill the seats we have reserved.
