April 2015 @ the BAG

APRIL FEATURE ARTIST:
Dorte @ 65: Posters in Retrospect
Opening Sat. April 4th at 7:30

As an Art Teacher in West Vancouver back in the day, I was always being asked to produce posters and print T-shirts. Hand cut stencils made way for photo cut stencils, often student designs. A messy and smelly business. I first began making posters for the BAG by hand when I still lived in North Vancouver. I spent a lot of time trying to mimic Michael Malcolm’s hand drawn fonts - with limited success.  The hand drawn parts of the top and bottom of our newsletter are his work.  I eventually progressed to using Aldous Freehand on the computer, then Photoshop and now Illustrator. I have also made many posters for Squamish Gardeners, Sea to Sky Singers, Brackendale Fall Fair and other friends and groups. These are some of my posters, displayed just for fun, for my 65th Birthday Month. It has been a great creative challenge and an honour to do this work.

Jim Byrnes in Concert

Jim Byrnes moved to Vancouver, BC in the mid-70s after years of drifting, working odd jobs and playing music. In 1981 he put together a band that became a staple of the local music scene. His fame as an actor has grown immeasurably from his too-numerous-to mention TV roles, with highlights including television’s Wiseguy and Highlander series, and his own national variety show, The Jim Byrnes Show. Jim has proven that a serious car accident in 1972 has done anything but hinder him. Despite two swipes with death and some pretty hard knocks, Jim’s first love is the blues. His evocative, smoky vocals are found in a truth that doesn’t come overnight.

Sea T Sky Big Band with Melissa Braun and Kevin McKenzie

Under the direction of jazz trumpeter, music educator and band leader Michael Perkins, the Sea T Sky Big Band returns to the BAG with a collection of new tunes and a few new faces as well. Along with a talented group of returning players, recently added musicians including Squamish’s own ‘Piano Impresario’, Erik Musseau and Whistler native, Richard Harley ( Trumpet and Flugelhorn) will join Michael and the band for their debut performances. The evening will also feature the fabulous vocal talents of Melissa Braun and Kevin McKenzie.  Melissa Braun is the owner of the popular and rapidly growing Squamish Academy of Music. Her musical pedigree is too long to list here. Included in her song selections will be a classic favourite to both Michael and Melissa, “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square”.  Her performance of this piece is guaranteed to tug at your heart strings. Kevin McKenzie is a highly sought after session vocalist who has toured with several bands including his own, “Damn the Diva”. He will add his power-house blues-rock voice to the Blood Sweat and Tears version of “God Bless the Child”.  The program will include music from jazz masters Thelonius Monk, Dave Brubeck and Duke Ellington, iconic songwriters George and Ira Gershwin to the jazz/pop stylings of Chuck Mangione and Blood Sweat and Tears.
