Ralph Beechum (b, v), Steve Sykes (g), RT Bolden (ts), Carl Carwell (v, perc), Clarence Cage (d, v), Al Campbell (p), and yours truly took over from Rod Wolber (tpt) while still a young pup (tpt). Visit us on facebook

Gabriel and Band at Jazz Vespers for Christmas Show

Dec 3, 2017: St Andrews Wesley Church in Vancouver continued with the ongoing Sunday Jazz Vespers, this day featuring Gabriel Mark Hasselbach. The talented band members are: Glenn Riley (b), Bruno Hubert (p), Doug Quiring (d), Andrew Stack (g), and Gabriel  (tpt, flt, flg). The music was interspersed with an uplifting and erudite sermon delivered by Rev Dan Chambers, booked and produced by Jamie Croil (a fine trumpeter in his own right), and audio was recorded by Tom Rose. 

Gabriel performs in Costa Rica

Hello Vancouver,

I am performing in Costa Rica right now, and won’t be hosting the Blue Martini Sunday Jam (1516 Yew St) this Sunday at 7pm, that show will be in the capable hands of the fantastic Lisa Dunn. 

She has her own stellar delivery of jazz and blues, and has some special guests up her sleeve. The ‘Swizzle Sticks’ (Blue Martini- get it?) will be on board as usual: Bruno Hubert (pno), Glenn Riley (bs), Doug Quiring (dms), Andy Stack (gtr). The food is awesome, too!

Nov 26 I will be back for my CD release party for my new 27 track compilation ‘Sweet and Sexy’ which will be available onsite as double discs or downloads. 

There will be food and drink specials including the ‘Hasselblast!’, a blue martini with my own spin, version 2.0!

This cd project features Amanda Wood, Nancy Ruth, Miles Black, Chuck Loeb, Marc Antoine, Paul Brown, Jeff Lorber, and many more. Gonna have a good time!
