FMO here we come!

by Deanna Knight on October 10, 2014

Super excited to be attending the FMO conference coming Oct 16-19th in Toronto. My friend Chris Ronald and I will host the Best  West Song Circle showcase on the Saturday night. It will be packed with fabulous talent and good fun and will be the first time I showcase my songwriting at this conference.  When I lived in Ontario, I would attend each year but have not been able to go for many years now. Will be great to reconnect with this active folk music community and to share my songs too!! Maybe I will see you there?2014 best west poster

H’Arts for the Homeless 2014

by Deanna Knight on September 9, 2014

In efforts to continue building community while sharpening my production skills, I celebrate my 4th year co-producing H’Arts for the Homeless in support of the Lookout Emergency Aid Society. After our sold out success last year, we return to The Imperial @ Main and Hastings on Thursday, Oct 2nd. The Hotties will play a couple acoustic sets in the lounge during cocktail hour while I wear my production hat and keep the night running smoothly.

Through circus, music, stories, dance and art, the gala will highlight the deep sense of relief and hope that a stable, safe home provides. H’Arts celebrates the joys, successes, untold strengths and stories of the residents, as well as the front-line workers who live and work at Lookout.

Experience art installations telling the story of homelessness, delicious food, fantastic performers, live visual artists, a silent auction and, of course, the live auction with comedian David C. Jones as our auctioneer. Visit our FaceBook page HERE

We are raising funds for the essential services and support necessary to bring solutions to homelessness in Greater Vancouver.

Date: Thursday, October 2, 2014
Time: Doors at 5:30pm / Event 6 – 9:30 pm
Where: The Imperial, 319 Main St., Vancouver
* Valet parking available (suggested $10 donation)

Tickets: $60 – Purchase tickets HERE

Captured at the Kino Cafe!

by Deanna Knight on September 7, 2014


2014_kino_choir

Joined by Vancouver’s City Singers Choir for several songs on their wrap up rehearsal night, before summer break. What a treat to have such fine voices support our songs. We all had a blast and it inspired talks about an official performance with a real plan. Perhaps April in Paris 2015!!!!??

This was what I thought would be my final show at The Kino Cafe in Vancouver where I held court with The Hot Club of Mars for 8 years. I left for numerous reasons though I now hear that there are new owners at the Cafe!! I may venture back now and then to join my talented Hotties who continue to make music and have fun on the 3rd Monday of each month.
