A-Trane Calendar [Thursday June 20th 2019 – Monday July 1st 2019]


This is a highly subjective calendar of things going on around the lower mainland of Vancouver in the next week – mostly jazz but not always …
I announce the A-Trane Calendar every Friday afternoon around 4:30 on The A-Trane (2:30 – 5:30) 100.5FM or http://coopradio.org. I often feature music by many of the artists listed here on the show. The A-Trane shows are available after broadcast at the CFRO archives.

If you’d like your event included or if you would like to be added to the mailing list then message me or drop me a line at: nou.dadoun@gmail.com

And consider pledging your support for the A-Trane and CFRO non-commercial radio.


Special note: The TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival runs from June 21st to July 1st with hundreds of Free and Ticketed shows at multiple indoor and outdoor venues all over the city. I’ve listed some highlights but you can download the full program – get out and enjoy your festival!
