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!!

I have been invited to the Enigma Restaurant in the new year to sing 3 sets along with Michael Dunn and Don Kellett. Not too often that we have a 3 set performance so that will ensure for lots of variety and some wonderful instrumentals by Hotties Michael and Don. Please come out and enjoy a great dining experience and support our first time at this venue.
I had the great pleasure to be part of another special celebration at the St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church today. This was the 3rd annual Olde Thyme Christmas Vesper with a talented cast of vocalists and a stellar band including Saul Berson, Jamie Croil, Peter Juric, Ingrid Mapson, Siobhan Walsh, Don Stewart, Michael Wagler, Eliot Polsky, Patricia Meilin, Dave Ivaz, and our special host Margaret Gallagher! What a treat to share a fun rendition of White Christmas…Drifters style.
So pleased to announce our return to Commercial Drive. After several years of a regular gigs at The Libra Rm (flooded / under renos / no idea when it will reopen) we were bounced over for a stint at the Roma Cafe (not a great room / lost live music license) We have now landed at the ever popular Cafe Deux Soleils. This cultural hub of The Drive is a lovely listening room with great food, good sound and friendly staff. We will charge a small cover of $6 and play two sets starting at 7pm. If all goes well this will become our monthly show on The Drive.
We always have such a blast at the Goorin’ Bros Hat Shop in Yaletown. Drop by to say hello and find yourself a lovely new chapeau. We will be there on the next two Saturdays. The staff are often serving up complimentary cocktails to enhance your shopping experience
The Nov 26th fun is part of the CandyTown celebrations!
Come on out to this intimate dinner and concert at the Gallery Bistro in Port Moody. Enjoy a special night out with a delicious set menu. So intimate that The Hotties may not even plug in. Experience Michael’s fine instruments as they were meant to be heard….fully acoustic. I will also kick off the night with a few a cappella songs…. to warm up the room. This is our first dinner / concert and we are excited to share the night with YOU! Reserve your seats early to avoid disappointment.
Two Sunday’s in a row sharing the stage with this wonderful trio, supporting my original songs. I feel quite a home in the sacred setting of these jazz vespers and look forward to my first time at Northwood United with this line-up. Hope you can join myself, Simon Kendall and Finn Manniche Sunday Oct 23rd, 4-5pm in Surrey….. everyone is welcome.
