LIVE HOT JAZZ & SWING SMOOTH FLOOR FOR DANCING!  LUSCIOUS LIBATIONS & EATS! & MORE


Hailing from Chilliwack, BC, and now living in New York City, award winning trumpeter/vocalist/ composer BRIA SKONBERG is "poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation."- Wall Street Journal.

In 2013 she earned a Jazz Journalists’ Association nomination for “Up and Coming Jazz Artist of The Year” and is included in DOWNBEAT Magazine’s Rising Star Critics‘ Poll . She has recently been honored with a New York Bistro Award for “Outstanding Jazz Artist”. Her first professional gig was as a big band singer at age sixteen doubling on trumpet and she has since performed as a bandleader and guest artist at over 50 jazz festivals in North America, Europe, China and Japan. Since moving to New York in 2010 she has headlined at Symphony Space, Birdland, The Iridium, Dizzy's and Cafe Carlyle.

She has been featured on Wycliffe Gordon’s projects, recording on the Louis Armstrong tribute “Hello Pops”, performing a Tribute to Dizzy Gillespie at Dizzy’s Jazz Club in New York and as a member of his big band. Bria focuses on innovating while honoring tradition: She has studied with Warren Vache, experimented with fuzz pedals and presented a gig fusing jazz and stand up comedy.

Best known for her knowledge of classic jazz and pursuit of worldwide adventure, she is now creating a style rooted in hot jazz, world percussion, soul, and electronic effects. Her debut US release SO IS THE DAY, peaked at #7 on the US National jazz charts; it features mostly original material and an all-star ensemble including John Pizzarelli, Victor Goines and Wycliffe Gordon. Released on Random Act Records, 10% of all proceeds go to support the Jazz Foundation of America. 

She currently tours the world, headlining major clubs and festivals as well as programming music education workshops for all ages. She is an active volunteer at the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona, Queens and co-producer of the New York Hot Jazz Festival.

DURING BAND BREAKS:
 
DJ Va Va Voon WILL SPIN A HOT-TROTTIN' MIX OF NEW ORLEANS HOT JAZZ, 30/40S SWING TUNES AND NITTY GRITTY BLUES TO KEEP YOU DANCING ALL EVENING.
DJ Va Va Voon was voted one of New York's favorite swing DJs last year in a Yehoodi poll and had the pleasure of DJ-ing with DJ Ryan Swift at Lincoln Center on Valentine's Day (the Jazz At Lincoln Center event featured the sensational Hot Sardines Band).
He was also excited to DJ at both the 1st and 2nd Annual NEW YORK HOT JAZZ FESTIVAL.
Besides New Orleans-style hot jazz, his repertoire includes swing standards, big band, old-timey/obscure tracks and gypsy jazz. 
His DJ gigs include Yehoodi's Frim Fram Jam, The Salon/Prohibition Productions events (Mardi Gras, a l'Empire, New Year's Eve Eve), Dances of Vice events, Swingeasy, Gypsy Jam Weekend, NY Swing Dance Society & Yale Swing & Blues' Elm City Exchange. 
He is also excited to debut as one of the DJs at the Jammin on the James lindy exchange from October 17-19, 2014 at Richmond, VA.
