Event Details

Piva presents: Jazz at the Anvil celebrates local, talented musicians from the Metro Vancouver area. The goal of these shows is to both elevate the appreciation of jazz, but also to engage, strengthen, and amplify arts in the community. Piva is also passionate about supporting the community: proceeds from these events go to New Westminster charities.

The R&B Allstars formed in the late 70’s as a testament to our love of Classic R B. The original band, with signature white tuxedos, first opened for Long John Baldry at Ohara’s. At this gig, the band was seen by Harry Brandolini, of No. 5 Orange, and he had an idea that the Allstars and the “5” would be a great weekend fit. Harry hired us, and the line-ups began, as did the curiosity. We were featured on local news, radio and TV shows. Many write-ups by people such as Tom Harrison only helped our popularity.

The R&B Allstars is a dynamic 10-piece rhythm and blues band, celebrating their 41st year on the Vancouver music scene. Formed in 1979, the band gained popularity playing venues such as the iconic Town Pump, the Commodore, Richards on Richards, 86th Street as well as being a regular feature at Whistler’s Buffalo Bills. The band enjoyed great radio support in the early years having recorded many singles and a live album, Live at the Five, which is where it all started. More recently the band recorded a CD/DVD set at the Hard Rock Casino.
