Finally!!! Lullaby Stork takes flight in the Vancouver area.
This has been a looooong labour and I’m so pleased to be able to offer this unique service to my community. Creating memorable experiences is one of my greatest joys as a performer. Especially if it revolves around a sacred moment with close friends and family.
Some of you may not know that I ran a singing telegram service in the Waterloo,Ontario region for many years throughout the 90′s. Balloon-a-toons kept food on the table, rent paid and gas in my car for 13 years. I was a one woman show and this little business kept me afloat and happily singing endless greetings dressed in a whole roster of characters. No celebration was overlooked with the most popular being Birthdays, Anniversaries, New Babies, Retirements and Get Wells.
You can now book your very own singing telegram. I will arrive as feathered minstrel Lullaby Stork delivering your message in poetry and song. Create a unique and memorable experience for new parents, grandparents, colleagues and friends. I suspect that Baby Showers will be the most popular but lets think out of the box to CELEBRATE and WELCOME a NEW BABY at the hospital or once they arrive home. SHARE an exciting or long awaited BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT in this super fun and unique way or LIVEN UP a BABY SHOWER or GENDER REVEAL party ….which I hear is all the new rage these days!!!
I have created some extra fun by putting together what I am calling “Blessing Bundles” These are available in a variety of sizes and are added to the delivery to an added cost. They include a wide variety of locally sourced, eco-crafted baby gift items. So pleased to include products from Saje Natural Wellness, the Kootenay Soap Co., Bamboobino, Cookiella and more!

Deanna Knight & the Hot Club Cabaret has become a tradition at the 3 day April in Paris Festival. Deanna carefully curates a clever cast of local talent to add pizzazz and excitement to the evening. Alongside her vintage flare she will sprinkle in the tapping toes of Tosh Sutherland & Alexandra Clancy, the elegant swing dance of Catie Fissel & Dave Henderson as well as a stunning number by burlesque darling Ariel Helvetica. Attendees will be ushered in by the lovely Sue Baines on accordion and we celebrate the return of the hilarious emcee Kat Single-Dain as Gloria. Mixing the night up with swing, bossa, tango and more, The Hot Club of Mars is Vancouver’s most eclectic gypsy swing ensemble. Bring your dancing shoes… as you just might be inspired to get out of your seat and shake it!

Super excited to announce an East Van Double Bill House Concert with the super talented Chris Ronald on Sunday April 23rd. He will bring along John Ellis and I will bring along Simon Kendall. This promises to be a wonderful night of songs and stories …I hope you can join us. House concerts help create culture and community through great music and intimate experiences. Please RSVP to save your spot.
I will have some fun helping warm up the room at this lovely monthly event. Turns out David Sinclair is also on the bill and knows some of my songs. I have asked him to join me for a couple tunes…which is always a treat. NOTE: I have 20 minutes. The night will be full of great music so please come down and enjoy! FYI – Looks like I will be added as a feature performer to this event in 2018. Come check it out and support live music in our community.
Join me at Brentwood Evensong on Wednesday, Feb 8th for a 8-9pm service. I’ve had the pleasure of performing in this lovely sanctuary a few times now. They are working hard to bring some top talent into their community. I look forward to sharing the Deanna Knight Tree-O and a nice mix sacred originals and sweet songs.

As many of you know, I have a history playing Grateful Dead tunes and I just can’t seem to “shake” it This new line-up of fine musicians has found new inspiration to jam out these tunes for you folks and I get to play the relaxed role of harmony vocals….oh ya!!!
I have also been having fun with a new graphic design program making some fun promotional tools. Loving that I can picture something in my mind and finally make it happen without hiring a graphic artist. If I had the cash…I would do that but I often don’t have anything extra, so this is a great solution and I get to have another creative outlet.
Since it is April Fool at the strike of midnight for this gig, we thought we would have some fun and ask folks to dress up in their best Merry Prankster garb!!
I enjoyed myself so much last month with The Hotties, at this lovely Bistro in Port Moody. I have booked my trio in for a rare night of my original songs. I will share the stage with the very talented Simon Kendall (Doug and the Slugs) on piano and Finn Manniche (Van Django) on cello.
Come on out for the perfect date night or a quiet evening with music loving friends.
Enjoy a set menu and our concert for only $30!!
