Big excitement as we welcome the latest jazz musician lured to Canada by a lovely Canadian woman - Simon Stribling who just relocated to Victoria! Simon has toured the world on numerous occasions and played with many jazz greats. He’s on reeds for this show with CanUS, altho’ he is also known as a multi-talented trumpet player. He was leader of the world renowned 'FIREWORKS JAZZ BAND' (formerly Hotter than Six) and played at the Vanuatu Jazz Festival, Kobe Street Jazz Party (Japan), TerrifVic Jazz Party (1998, 1999), Chilliwack Jazz Festival (1998, 1999), Las Vegas and at the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee in California in 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998 and 1999*.

CanUS & Friends is a group of Victoria’s most revered traditional jazz musicians and love sharing that wonderful genre of New Orleans Jazz,& Blues with you. Al & Matt Pease on leave today, and on the trumpet, vocals is Alfons Fear, well known to fans. Giving the rhythm back-up are the music veterans Joey Smith on bass, vocals, Avram McCagherty on banjo & vocals, leader Toni Blodgett also singing and of course, tickling the ivories.
