Friday Night Jazz with Hasselbach

Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, a multi-instrumental jazz musician, performed at the latest of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery’s Music at the Cannery series last Friday August 1st.

As one might expect, the very talented JUNO award winning artist drew quite a large crowd and by 6:15, 15 minutes prior to the show’s start, all 150 seats on the Cannery’s tank deck were full!

Thanks to the lovely acoustics on the tank deck, however, the music could still be enjoyed perfectly in Fishermen’s Park just in front of the Cannery. Many came prepared with their own lawn chairs or simply picnicked right on the grass, enjoying the bright sun and music. Even random passersby, out for a walk with their (furry) friends, would often stop to catch a song or two. By 7 pm, the Cannery was a festive, cheerful hive of activity where children and adults alike relaxed and danced, enjoying the slow ease of a Friday night well spent.

This Friday August 8, the Irish Wakers are slated to amuse the crowd with their jigs, reels, and shanties. For anyone who likes a spot of fun, this is a must-see!

To ensure a seat, we advise visitors to arrive by 6pm. As always, the cash bar and concession will also be available.
