$28 ($24 members)
Tickets at: The Rogue Folk Club, Rufus Guitar Shop, Highlife Records, Tapestry Music (ex-Prussin Music)
Presented by: The Rogue Folk Club
Marc Atkinson's compositions are punchy, driving and rhythmically inventive. They take the guitar beyond the usual repertoire and sound. The tunes have a fiery but elegant style, infused with a catchy blend of influences. All the while maintaining the laid-back humour and casual "good time feel" of Canada's West Coast. His picking has been described as flawless, surprise-filled, sizzling and supremely melodic. His music is original, complex and challenging in its conception and delivery but remains accessible and absorbing. With Brett Marten on rhythm and Joey Smith on bass, the music of this fine trio welcomes all listeners aboard for an intriguing, exhilarating and unforgettable ride.

Daphne Roubini playfully named ”First Lady of Uke” sings and plays the Ukulele in her band Black Gardenia (featuring Daphne Roubini and Andy Smith with Paul Pigat and co.), the Vancouver-based five-piece whose ‘London Jazz meets Americana’ sound has delighted festival and club audiences on two continents. With their unique, darkly-relaxed blend of vintage jazz, country, folk and blues from the 20′s, 30′s and 40′s, Black Gardenia takes listeners on a journey to an age where cool meant classy and noir was the norm.

“A relaxed approach to old school jazz with tinges of blues, country, and western swing, with some of the hippest Ukulele that you can hope to hear.” - Ken Pickering, Artistic Director and Co-Founder, Vancouver Jazz Festival
