A hot band with smooth harmony - that is what has put local jazz band, CanUS, on the map both here and in the U.S.A. Jim Armstrong comes back to guest with CanUS for this special show.

A reviewer for "Mississippi Rag" wrote: "CanUS is a one-of-a-kind group.....with a sound unlike any other on the scene today, which is a tremendous accomplishment".

It is not unusual to see several generations of one family as older ones try to pass on the tradition of swing and New Orleans jazz.
