2018 saw Bonnie touring over ten countries in North America, Europe, and Asia. As well as being a touring musician, she is regularly featured as a studio recording artist, clinician, and adjudicator. She is a driving force in the Pacific North West Hot Jazz scene and can be found regularly performing in dance halls, festivals, clubs, and music venues in British Columbia.

This May sees the release of her debut album “Between then and Now”

“An album for you, an album for me. For the social dancer who’s swing out is more fabulous than Friday night. For the kitchen sock-hopper who grooves in private while steaming broccoli. For the old souls and the young at heart. For the lovers, for the dreamers. A snap shot between then and now.”

“…blowing one hot, sweet trumpet.”
Jo Ledingham- Vancouver Courier

“…electrifying trumpet playing.”
Kathleen Oliver- Georgia Straight

“Be prepared for some super laid back hot early jazz & blues”

Rangoon 8PM

If there’s a genre called “Urban Country”, Rangoon claims it. Thumping rhythms underlie blues-based original material with country overtones and gritty street cred.
Building around Will’s original songs, the band has developed its own feel. Sometimes described as “high energy Americana”, Rangoon dips into bluegrass, west-coast and alt-country, Irish folk and roots music of all kinds. Influences from as far afield as Greece and Australia help create a story-telling narrative in which melodrama, passion and humour abound in stories of love and loss, where fantasy and reality clash, and nothing is resolved.
Rangoon is Will Hudson on guitars and vocals, Michele Haniotis on drums and vocals, Richard Harrison on bass and Howard Sarna on lead guitar and vocals.
