Marc Atkinson Trio
at Trutch St. in Kitsilano
Celebrating more than 13 years in existence Pearl Django continues to be one of America's most respected and busiest Hot Club style groups. Their music reaches out across the divides of taste to a wide variety of audiences. Transcending simple categorization, Pearl Django packs in enthusiastic audiences at dancehalls and nightclubs, at folk music festivals and jazz festivals alike. The band features Neil Andersson on Guitar, Ryan Hoffman on Guitar, David Lange on Accordion, Michael Gray on Violin & Rick Leppanen on Bass.
The Marc Atkinson Trio is a virtuosic, acoustic guitar-driven trio from Victoria. The band features Reuben Wier on rhythm guitar, Joey Smith on bass and, you guessed it, Marc Atkinson (also of The Bills) on acoustic lead guitar. Their 2002 CD Marc Atkinson Trio II, was voted one of the year's Top 5 CDs released in North America by Acoustic Guitar Magazine - it was also nominated for best jazz album by the 2003 Western Canadian Music Awards. The tunes showcase that elegant gypsy guitar style and, in true West Coast style, infuse it with a catchy blend of influences ranging from folk to jazz to classical to world beat.
