Sanctuary AllStars at Norman Rothstein Theatre on Thursday, October 18

On Thursday, October 18th, the Sanctuary AllStars was privileged to perform before 250 people as part of a tribute concert to Marjorie Groberman at the Norman Rothstein Theatre at the Jewish Community Centre, 41st and Oak in Vancouver. Beginning at 7:00pm with a brief video and a few words about Marjorie, noted international pianists Robert and Ellie Silverman  worked their classical piano magic from about 7:15 'till almost 8:00pm. The Sanctuary AllStars then performed from 8:00 to about 9:15pm - apparently Margie loved big band jazz. In the words of one of the event organizers, "Your performance was magical and exceeded our expectations"! Good for us!

Jazz at the Cottage Bistro Thursday, October 11th

Now that autumn is here, it is time to get back in the groove. In that regard, BLJQ is back at the Cottage Bistro Thursday, October 11. If you haven't heard any really great mainstream jazz for a while, you need to come out and see/hear us. In fact, the Bob Liley Jazz Quintet is appearing there the second Thursday of every month for the foreseeable future. This is toe-tapping, feel-good music that will put a smile on your face. This group features some of the best jazz players in town. Joining us this week on tenor sax will be the great Aaron Hardie. Come out and give us a listen. We will be starting at about 9:00 pm. Admission is just $5.00 per person. This is Jazz for the fun of it!

The Cottage Bistro is located at 4470 Main Street at 29th Ave. in Vancouver. Tel. 604-876-6138. Very tasty food, excellent drinks, a customer-friendly wine list, and super-friendly service. Check us out!
