Jazz Barb

Jazz for Barb Series


The Jazz for Barb Series is a series of monthly jazz nights held in honor of the late Barbara Fudge. A passionate and loyal fan of Jazz music, she could be seen all over the city at various jazz events talking and laughing with her friends, mingling with the musicians, and enjoying a glass of fine wine. Her personality and laughter were both contagious and although she is no longer with us her “larger than life” spirit shines bright. We are proud and happy to be able to honor Barb with our Jazz for Barb Series.

Every year since the series’ creation in 2014, and thanks to the collaboration with jazz hero Cory Weeds and Coastal Jazz and Blues Society, we have hosted countless jazz bands and performances and brought this excitement to the community to enjoy and appreciate. These groups and musicians include the likes of Cory Weeds, Jill Townsend, Bill Coon, Jennifer Scott, Steve Kaldestad as well as many more talented individuals that make up Vancouver’s thriving jazz community.

Please refer to our online calendar to reserve your tickets to the next jazz night at Frankie’s Jazz Club!

Please note that the jazz nights in June, July, and August are traditionally free for the public and the community to enjoy, and are held outdoors at Il Centro’s Piazza Caboto.
