These Vancouver jazz pros are not to be missed. Vocalist Darlene Ketchum sings Jazz, Soul, Funk, and R&B. As a composer, the vocal freedom of jazz, combined with the rich chords and funky laid-back groove, inspire her songs.
Darlene will be performing mostly originals – some of her own and some co-written with Bill Sample. The music is a bit bluesy, a bit funky with some smoky ballads and addresses the life and times we live in. Her band will be: Bill Sample (piano); Rene Worst (bass); Buff Allen (drums); Bill Runge (sax).
Darlene Ketchum Quintet will be onstage at the Vernon Jazz Club (3000-31 Street) on Saturday, October 7th at 8 PM. Doors open at 7:15 PM. CASH ONLY BAR ON SITE.
