For 15 years this Victoria jazz band stole show after show on the "trad" jazz circuit all over North America. Triangle Jazz of Seattle called them “a hot band with a swinging rhythm section and a great front line”. The highlight for CanUS was being invited to play The Millennium Theatre at The Kennedy Centre in Washington,DC co-sponsored by the Canadian Dept. of Foreign Affairs. The fact that CanUS served an international audience and is composed of musicians from both sides of the border gave rise to the unusual spelling of their name.
Retiring from the road meant more time for local concerts and an opportunity for sharing their music here at a wonderful listening venue but also offering a dance floor, our own Hermann's Jazz Club.
