“…a dynamic dynasty of musical progeny.”—All About Jazz
If you want to talk trad jazz in Vancouver, you need to talk about the Arntzens. Spanning three generations, this prolific musical family dazzles with melodic, swinging tunes rooted in the New Orleans tradition. Patriarch Lloyd Arntzen discovered the music of Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong as a boy, lighting a fire in him that burns brightly to this day. Blessed with a golden voice and marvelous clarinet tone, he passed the love of music onto son Tom piano/vocals, daughter-in-law Georgina vocals, and grandsons Evan clarinet/saxophone/vocals and Arnt guitar/banjo/vocals, who return from New York.
Note: Two sets included in ticket price for this performance.
