"Mansion Full Of Ghosts" (Jesse Waldman's new album) will be in the Top 10 albums of the year”— Fred Delforge, Zicazic.com
Diamond-in-the-rough guitar virtuoso, Jesse Waldman, wears many hats, from candid singer-songwriter to studio producer, respected sound designer to sought-after film and TV composer. For the last decade, he has been honing his own unique and eclectic blend of folk and blues, earning him the reputation of being an “East Van fixture” by Exclaim! Magazine, all before ever recording his first solo album. With the release of his long-awaited debut, Mansion Full of Ghosts, devoted fans from Toronto to Vancouver, can now rest easy. Four years in the making, Mansion Full of Ghosts, a true labor of love, is finally here.
“Infused with a hopeful tinge, Mansion Full of Ghosts is a wholesome, masterfully written debut that will appeal to fans both old and new”— Emma Sloan, Canadian Beats
“Warm, simple and sparse, Mansion Full Of Ghosts is like a warm hug on a cold, rainy evening”
— The Rock Doctor, gonzookanagan

The Lawless Firm is a Gypsy jazz style musical group put together by veteran musician Michael Dunn. The quartet is made up of Michael Dunn (guitar and slide guitar), Eleanore Dunn ( vocals and ukulele), Joe Bourchier on bass and vocals and our newest member, Edgar Bridwell a fabulous jazz violinist. A lot of our repertoire comes from the American songbook of the 30's and 40's with a little Blues, some Gypsy Jazz, Country, a bit of Hawaiian.
A great variety of music including some virtuoso pieces featuring Edgar on the violin playing songs from Iran to Russia to the USA. Eleanore, our chanteuse, has what is best described as an "old fashioned voice" ideally suited to the songs from the Swing era. Joe holds down the bass parts and Michael, who has spent the last 5 decades as a professional luthier, plays music heavily influenced by the Gypsy jazz tradition.
The group is only marginally amplified just enough to fill the room. No loud music from these guys. Songs are performed as they were before the invention of electric amplified loudness. Its a listener's delight.
Doors: 6:30pm, Set-menu-Dinner: 7:00pm, Music: 8:00pm

About 600 students participated - and Topaz is one of 2 finalists selected from Western Canada. Wow.!!! The winner will be announced May 30th.
The Milk Crate Bandits make music to make you dance, smile and party. It's music born on the streets. Walking down the streets of Vancouver you might see them on their stolen plastic thrones and playing the sounds of New Orleans. Yes, some may say they're crooks but the petty theft of a milk crate from a back alley is surely absolved by the love they'll give you if you come and listen. The joy of the music will make you jump, holler and shout and some even say that being party to a misdemeanour makes it all the more fun!
