- THE BAND -
Busy Vancouver bass player 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, clever arrangements, plenty of spontaneous fun, and an evident, infectious love for making music. Jen's particular expertise in the arena of traditional jazz and swing music has taken her to stages all over Canada, the USA, China, Spain, France, the UK, and the Caribbean, with such folks as Bria Skonberg, Tamar Korn, the Brothers Arntzen, Jon-Erik Kellso, Greg Ruby, Gordon Webster, Company B Jazz Band, and her own project, the Jen Hodge All Stars. On home turf, Jen can be found leading a band on Wednesday nights at Guilt & Co, a bar in Vancouver's historic Gastown district, where she has held a regular gig since January 2011.
