The musical trio Longhand will be performing at Fraser River Heritage Park in Mission on August 19 at 7 p.m.

Jazz groups to perform on Mission’s Twilight stage

On Wednesday, August 19, also at 7 p.m., Longhand will take to the stage.

Fraser River Heritage Park will be swaying to the music of the Company B Jazz Band tonight at 7 p.m. as the Envision Financial Twilight Concert Series continues.

Company B Jazz Band is Vancouver’s foremost vintage jazz harmony group. The six-piece ensemble – featuring a female vocal trio in the style of the Andrews and Boswell Sisters – framed by clarinet, sax, guitar, and upright bass, has been entertaining diverse audiences since 2007.

The group has released three albums and performed all over B.C. and the U.S.

On Wednesday, August 19, also at 7 p.m., Longhand will take to the stage.

Longhand is a co-operative trio comprised of Syke Brooks (drums), Russell Sholberg (bass), and Tony Wilson (guitar), often accompanied by Tyson Naylor (keys).

Longhand has a varied repertoire ranging from high energy free improv to melancholy tunes with beautiful melodies. Along with original music, Longhand offers unique interpretations of jazz, blues and classic Motown tunes.

Twilight concerts take place every Wednesday and Friday evening from now until August 28.

Admission to the concerts is free, though donations to this community-based series are appreciated.
