Vancouver’s International Jazz Festival began yesterday, and for the next 10 days, there will be a ton of amazing talent, an assortment of musical genres, and plenty of free shows to check out!
Visit http://www.coastaljazz.ca/ or download the free mobile app to see who is playing near you, artist info., and the festival calendar. There are always family friendly free shows at public stages downtown, Granville Island, the Roundhouse, and David Lam Park. Remember the Scat post? Well, this year, Quincy Jones presents: Nikki Yanofsky at the Vogue on June 29th
The best way to become inspired is to get out there and watch someone else’s hands fly over the keys, expose yourself to new sounds, and figure out what you love about music! Hope to see you out there.
