community support

by Deanna Knight on June 13, 2014

Vancouver’s UGM does amazing work  for the homeless and under privileged in Vancouver. Myself and the Hot Club always play their Table for 2000 in December. A very successful hot meal event, serving over 3000 meals in a 5 hour span… to men, women and children living in poverty.  This is their summer networking event and we are happy to offer our music as an up-lifting soundtrack….and maybe a little dancing ;)

Thanx to Scott Alpen for these photos from our 2013 appearance.

For more than two decades, the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver has been one of the North Shore’s best loved community events. This 10 day festival continues to grow with more musical performances, new artist workshops, artsy kids studio, exhibitions of visual arts with a juried group show, upscale art market with over 80 tents, dance and drum performances, new food cart area, children’s art auction, free outdoor movies.

Enjoy the natural beauty of the setting. There is something for everyone!



Lift off!

by Deanna Knight on May 24, 2014

I had the complete pleasure of sharing the stage with Andrea Menard, Robert Walsh, Shawn Soucy and Nathan Aswell at the CD release of LIFT! A musical leap of faith for this accomplished musician, actress and ground breaker. What a treat!

Andrea and I became fast friends after meeting at Brock Tully’s Kindness Concert and Book Launch this spring. I was thrilled to find out that she has coined a new phrase and given me  a genre to settle into with my own writing –  Musical Messenger.

Here is a little back stage look at the making of this wonderful CD

Tickets will be on sale soon!
