Event Archive - TD Victoria International JazzFest: Bria Skonberg

Sun. June 28th 2015 The Jazz Room (All Ages)
8:30 PM
Presented by: Victoria Jazz Society
Bria Skonberg made the jump from Chilliwack to New York City shortly after her appearance at TD JazzFest in 2010 where guitarist John Pizzarelli sat in on one of her gigs.

Evan Arntzen clarinet/saxophone, Sean Cronin bass, Darrian Douglas drums, Dalton Ridenhour piano

“Bria Skonberg plays trumpet like a red hot devil and sings like a dream.” – Wall Street Journal
