Evan grew up in Vancouver but for several years now lives and plays in New York with many groups, including with Vince Geordano and the Nighthawks. He was also founder of the original BLACKSTICK before he left for the east.
Tom Arntzen will join on piano. Tom has been a fixture in the Vancouver music scene since he was a teenager.
Tom, with father, Lloyd, and son, Evan, established a group called THE THREE GENERATIONS OF jAZZ which played concerts in the Vancouver area and in NYC.
