Wild Blue Herons

November 19, 2022

This Vancouver based quartet will entertain with groove-oriented jazz that is a little bit hip, a bit cool, a bit smoky, a bit bluesy, but very much accesible. Formed in 2018 by Bill Sample and Darlene Cooper, they perform original songs and select standards, ranging from funk to blues to R and B but with a jazz twist. It’s jazz music for lovers of pop, or the other way around – depending on your viewpoint.

Collectively, the band members have played with Ray Charles, Diana Krall, kd lang, Van Morrison, and Michael Buble – to name a few.

Bill and Darlene will be joined by Rene Worst on bass, and Buff Allen on drums. Recently, David Foster had this to say:

“I had the great pleasure of getting to hear my dear friend and colleague, Bill Sample, and the band It was a treat from beginning to end. Great vocals from Darlene.”
