Surprise! The WJA is happy to partner with St. Agnes to put on an awesome shindig on the Northshore! Featuring the fantastic Teresa Riley who will teach us the basics of Swing Dance, and the magnificent Bonnie Northgraves who will host our jam, this night has something for everyone! Admission is $10, however, students/seniors are admissions by donation! There will be a house kit, bass, keyboard and PA there!
I held the first jazzy jam meetup on April 16th 2015 and International Jazz Day is April 30th so it feels like I should host a little celebration... So I'm hosting an open house in the afternoon for everyone that's supported VJJ over these years and let's play too! Please bring your own drinks and small contribution to nibbles would be appreciated. We can't use the suite anymore as a green room so the social will have to be on the main floor of the house while the jam is downstairs. If the weather is nice, the back deck is a great spot to hangout too.
Come join us at 3:00pm for lottery sign up. 8 slots, 2 jam times and a feature performer. Music starts at 3:30pm and runs till 7pm. If we are not full you can just show up to play. There are no resident musicians as of yet at this event. We provide a PA system with a full drumkit (Sabian B8's) and Keyboard (I will check the model). Each musician who plays a slot will also receive a $20 gift card to the brewery! Each week we will showcase a feature performer. Come show some love for your local Vancouver talent or show us what you got!...
High caliber and popular public jam with Cory Weeds. Good to go listen or sign up with a song and play with the pro's. Get there early. https://www.burnaby.ca/Things-To-Do/Arts-and-Heritage/Shadbolt-Centre-for-the-Arts/Arts-Programs/Arts-Programs-Events/Jazz-Jam.html
