What Is Groundwerk?

Groundwerk Vancouver is a group of electronic music enthusiasts passionate about showcasing local arts and nurturing community. Our goal is to host events that serve as a hub for our community to grow by encouraging creativity, sharing knowledge, creating mentorships and fostering new connections between both newcomers and veterans in Vancouver's music scene.

What is a Listening Party?

Our listening party series is a monthly gathering where we come together in a casual setting to listen to music which has been submitted by local artists leading up to the event. Each event we gain knowledge from a keynote speaker on a range of topics relevant to pushing the music scene forward in Vancouver. These events are informal affairs, not simply for producers, but anyone who enjoys and appreciates local music.

The evening will start with a dance practica. During the practica we circle up and share our names, some stretches, and any dance intentions we have for the evening. Then the floor will open for dancers of all levels to mingle, practice, and share moves and concepts that they’re working on.

During the practica, Bex will take aside a small group of the first-time fusion dancers and introduce you to the basics!

Extra money we bring in will be used to hire more inspiring musicians for future events, and to help pay the various musicians, DJs and organizers.

LiveWire is a monthly event that aims to bring in live music acts as often as possible. The better attendance we get on our DJ nights, the more money we can save up to hire a band for next time!

NYE w/ Geoff Berner, Carolyn Mark and Her New Best Friends and Hank & Lily!

anzanye.jpg

The ANZA Club is thrilled to present our New Years Eve Party with host Geoff Berner, Carolyn Mark and Her New Best Friends and Hank & Lily. Tickets $30 in advance and include complimentary champagne and pizza! Join us for a night of fantastic music and fun.

Geoff Berner has travelled the world many times around and has captivated audiences big and small at every step. Berner is mainly known as a practitioner of the klezmer-punk style, which combines the traditional folk music of Eastern European Jews with punks aggressive energy and disdain for slick perfection. Clever and literate, Berners songs can make you want to weep, laugh, grind your teeth, or kick out a window-often all at the same time. 

Carolyn Mark is a legend of the Canadian music touring scene. Formidable, hilarious and ridiculously talented, Carolyn evokes a singing style reminiscent of the great Loretta Lynn. Marks talent is consistently reflected in the company she keeps, one of her first acts was the Corn Sisters, a duo with fellow crooner Neko Case.  Once you have seen Mark play, you are a fan for life. Her love of music, laughter and red wine is purely infectious. 

Hank & Lily are Hank Pine and Lily Fawn, two very special and innovative creatures who've used music and comics to create a hilarious soundtrack to modern life. Hank and Lily are both multi-instrumental songwriters who have been creating and recording music and touring the world together for over ten years. The band has musical roots in punk rock and an eclectic style that covers well... just about everything.

The Guitar Cabaret

The ANZA Club presents: The Guitar Cabaret with host Paul Pigat and special guest Shawn Verrault, Thursday, October 8th

The ANZA Club is thrilled to present the launch of The Guitar Cabraret series with host, the internationally-reknowned singer songwriter and guitaist Paul Pigat. The Guitar Cabaret pairs local guitar virtuoso and host Paul Pigat with a wide range of guitar-slinging guests. For the launch concert, we are tickled to have the sensational Shawn Verrault (Wide Mouth Mason) join Pigat on stage. This series will continue on a semi-regular basis with the next edition being in December .

Tickets Available:

http://www.brownpapertickets.com

Paul Pigat has a robust and diverse career. Best known as the frontman and blistering guitarist for the rockabilly band Cousin Harley, Pigat also has a wide breadth of projects from jazz to roots to blues, most notably The Paul Pigat Trio and Boxcar Campfire. Paul’s solo guitar performances showcase the entire range of his work and never ceases to amaze and dazzle audiences and fans around the world. However impressive the list of credits he's compiled over the last few years has been — earned by supporting artists such as Neko Case, Jim Byrnes, Michael Kaeshammer and Carolyn Mark and opening for such acts as the Blind Boys of Alabama and The Stray Cats — it's when you get to hear Paul on his own that his star really shines.
