During a pandemic, virtual performances are the only way to go.
UCOL (United Church of Langley) invited Miles Black and Gabriel Mark Hasselbach to perform their mutual original material for their Jazz Vespers. Sumptuously recorded by Brad Jarvis, with still photos from Garth Balint, and production coordination from Linda Szentes.
I mounted a rooftop concert gratefully sponsored by Creative BC, to share my original material and to raise money for Reach Child & Youth Development Society and your contributions so far have added up greatly, thank you for your support! I've included information and a donation link for Reach Child & Youth Development Society https://www.reachchild.org/giving/. and at the bottom of this page is a short video from Director Kristin Bibbs, telling in more detail about the Reach program and its important function in our world.
Reach is a non-profit organization in Delta that helps children with special needs reach their full potential. The organization has been providing services to children and their families since 1959, and REACH provides timely, accessible, and supportive community programs and services for the Delta, Surrey, and Langley areas (BC). They promote optimal development and well-being for all children, youth, and adults, where all individuals flourish. REACH provides special programs to help with families and children challenged by Autism, and programs to help transition young Autistic adults into society.

Gabriel has a solid Smooth Jazz audience as well as a Mainstream one but focuses on the taste of the audience in front of him without dilution or pandering. His style reaches a wide demographic and he is at home on any stage. See why Gabriel Mark Hasselbach's Jazz Trifecta show is so successful and compelling for all audiences:
