Luckily we have Simon Stribling as leader who will be on trumpet. He had a world-travelling jazz band from Australia called “The Fireworks Jazz Band” but has relocated to Victoria and is now an exciting addition to the CanUS lineup as of July 2021 .
Former CanUS member Doug Rhodes - vocalist, baritone bass sax and soprano sax player, will be there who you can hear on 5 of the 8 CanUS CD’s available on youtube and who toured to the many jazz festivals with CanUS, including the concert at The Kennedy Center, Wash. D.C.
And breaking her rule to ‘never send in a sub who is better than you’, your vocalist & pianist will be Brooke Maxwell, internationally known for the thrilling musical, “Ride The Cyclone” that he and Jacob Richmond created plus a teaching and performing schedule locally that is astonishing.
The Arts on View Society was incorporated in December 2016 for the purpose of preserving Hermann’s Jazz Club and continuing to enhance the public’s appreciation of jazz, blues and world music through all-ages live performance. As the longest continuous running jazz club in Canada, Hermann’s has been at the forefront of providing the opportunity for local and visiting musicians to showcase their talents and hone their skills for the past 40 years.
The Arts on View Society operates Hermann’s Jazz Club, Hermann’s Upstairs, and the View Street Social.
