We're excited to be bringing out some of our favorite bands to Big Sky 2017! Keep an eye on this page for more info as to who all will be swinging your socks off this year!
Falty & the Defects like to play, good old fashioned, hard swinging jazz and blues. They play everything, from sultry and slow to energetic and silly. The Defects have a way of getting people to start to tap their foot or to shake uncontrollably. DANCING! They've got an infectious energy that spreads from the stage to the audience from the first downbeat. Falty & the Defects are first and foremost a dance band, but listening audiences will be drawn in by our instrumentation, dynamics, and musicality.
The Jen Hodge All Stars are Vancouver’s most authentic and most in-demand early jazz band. Comprising some of the city’s best young jazz musicians, the group is remarkably well-versed in the music of the 1910s, ’20s, and ’30s, taking their cues from past greats such as early Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, and Jelly Roll Morton. The group’s extensive repertoire, versatility, boundless energy, and deep love for musical spontaneity makes each All Stars performance different from the next and keeps listeners, dancers, and fellow musicians all coming back for more.
