Many thanks to the 200+ people who attended our event at the historic Dorchester Hotel in Nanaimo, BC - and to the musicians who have given so much of their time to help me fulfil my vision of a new jazz experience in this wonderful town -
The first set was a formal concert celebrating milestones in traditional jazz. During the intermission, we rolled-up the carpet to expose the dance floor. The 2nd set began with a a traditional parade piece and as the band "sashayed" to the stage, we were followed by a 2nd line contingent - complete with decorative umbrellas/parasols - all lead by our Grand Marshall, Brian Whitty, OCV. From there we played a set of more modern New Orleans idioms and the dance floor was packed -
