September 20th, 2019 - Matt Grinke's Happiest Big Band On Earth

What started out as an assignment in University grew into a full scale big band that is now called the Happiest Big Band On Earth. This full 17 piece Jazz Big Band brings a fresh sound to Disney favourites with arrangements written by Matt Grinke and played by some of the hottest Jazz musicians in Vancouver.

October 25th - Quayside Voices
Pop. A Cappella

FNL regulars will remember Quayside Voices from last season's special event where they opened for Countermeasure. The response to their performance was so strong that we just had to have them back again to perform their own show.

Quayside is THE West Coast's A Capella Pop Squad, delivering fresh remixes of top 40 hits all with only their voices. Each show brings high-energy & heart felt performances featuring stellar vocals, beat-boxing, and creative movement.

The squad is loaded with talent. On top of their vocals, each singer has been professionally educated. From piano, guitar, to choreography, Quayside taps into these skills when writing each song or arrangement. They're passionate about A Capella too, and are excited to be a top band of this genre in the Lower Mainland.

November 1st - Shawn Bullshields

Shawn Bullshields is a singer/guitarist, and has a natural charisma and professional delivery that combines a repertoire of songs from the genres of pop, blues, country and folk: the point where they intersect is through his masterful singing voice.  He commands instant attention because his voice conveys the truth, beauty and deep meaning within each song, expressed with the full weight of his personal life experience.  Shawn sings from the heart, and each song is a gift.

November 29th - Patty Verner with Miles Black

Vancouver Jazz fans are in for a real treat. Patty Verner is known as a performer who sings from the heart. A natural poet since childhood, Patty relates her poetic talents into her performances. Patty sings Jazz, Blues, Pop, Broadway and Classical songs.

Miles is well known on the Vancouver scene and is recognized as one of Canada's most accomplished jazz pianists.

Together, they are a duo that is not to be missed.
