Part of our Fall Speakeasy Sessions! JIM BYRNES lives and breathes music. For nearly fifty years he’s crooned, drawled, belted, hollered and sweet talked more songs into a microphone than most people ever get to hear in a single lifetime. His evocative, smoky vocals are found in a truth that doesn’t come overnight. The sheer joy you can hear in the music he creates is a reason to celebrate Jim Byrnes as a living musical treasure. SIMON KENDALL is a mainstay of the Vancouver music scene; from psychedelic teen hippie bands to getting the call to join the upstart Doug and The Slugs. Fifteen years as the band’s music director and keyboardist contributed to 4 Gold Albums and a number of Canadian top 40 hits. Simon recently formed the instrumental R&B group ‘Sharkskin’ with three members of the Odds, and currently divides his time between composing, producing and performing.
