You loved her with Company B Jazz Band and you’ll love her with her All Stars!
Busy Vancouver bass player, bandleader, and arranger Jen Hodge is a versatile musician who can be found playing with a wide variety of artists all over the world. When Jen is leading the band, she likes it hot – hard swinging grooves, boisterous New Orleans style horns, cheeky lyrics, intriguing arrangements, plenty of spontaneous fun, and an evident, infectious love for making music. Jen’s particular expertise in the arena of traditional jazz, swing, and Prohibition-era music has taken her to stages all over Canada, the USA, China, Spain, France, the UK, and the Caribbean. On home turf, Jen can be found leading a band on Wednesday nights at Guilt & Co, a bar in Vancouver’s historic Gastown district and a major hub for the city’s creative musical minds, where she has held a regular Wednesday night gig since January 2011.
“Hot lyricism with beautiful melodic statements and just the right blend of rocking collective improvisation.” – Michael Steinman, JAZZ LIVES, New York, NY, December 2016
“Jen is a mainstay of the traditional jazz scene in Vancouver; nay, not just a mainstay, but maybe even the nucleus.” – Solomon Douglas, pianist & bandleader, Seattle, WA, September 2016
