Chris Startup Quintet feat. Campbell Ryga

November 25, 2023

Two saxophones are better than one!

Chris Startup has worked as a Vancouver-based saxophonist since 1981. He has performed in a wide variety of musical situations, including big bands, jazz ensembles and pit orchestras. He also plays frequently with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

Three time Juno award winner Campbell Ryga, along with longtime Vancouver saxophonist, Chris Startup, bring their quintet to the Vernon Jazz Club.

Mr. Ryga’s awards and accolades are numerous due to his history of touring, teaching and recording. Mr. Startup has recently moved to Vernon and the VJC has wasted little time in booking him in.

Joining these two stellar saxophonists are; the lyrical guitar player, Sean Bray, and the solid rhythm section of Doug Stephenson on bass and Dan Marcelino on drums.

Tickets are now available online for this event.

Seating: At this time there are no table reservations. All seating is first come, first served.
