The Vancouver-based Ne Plus Ultra Jass Orchestra has teamed up with the Historic Trust to bring hot jazz of the 1920s and sweet dance music of the 1930s to music lovers and dancers as part of the Vancouver’s Downtown Association’s First Friday Art Walk.

Under the leadership of master showman Sammuel Murry-Hawkins, the ensemble transports audiences to the golden age of Hot Jazz and Sweet Dance Music, specializing in the tunes of Cab Calloway, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, and George Gershwin.

The all-ages recurring event kicks off Friday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m., and will feature a number of tunes to celebrate the Halloween season. Though not available for purchase at the ballroom, outside food and (non-alcoholic) beverages are permitted. Tickets are $10 at the door, or available for advanced purchase here.
