Parlour Jazz Series featuring Steve Smith (bass) and Dan Reynolds (piano)
Roedde House Museum’s Jazz Series has gone online for the first time! Our monthly jazz concerts, always hosted in our historic 1893 parlour, have been on hold since COVID, but thanks to a Community Arts Grant from the City of Vancouver and donations from our jazz fans, we are able to get the series going again with online concerts. To help support our local artists and keep the series going, you can donate here: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/roedde-house-preservation-society/
This concert was filmed at the end of February 2021 and features original compositions by Steve Smith, performed by Steve Smith (bass) and Dan Reynolds (piano). Sit back and enjoy this recording from our Victorian parlour!Read more: May 2021 Jazz Concert
