R&B Allstars 40th Anniversary

August 25, 27, 28, 29

The Allstars are a dynamic 10-piece rhythm and blues band, celebrating their 40th year on the Vancouver music scene in 2019.    The band was formed in 1979 and gained popularity at venues like The Town Pump, Commodore, Richards on Richards and 86th Street. After a decade of recuperation from groove fatigue, the Allstars reformed in 2013.

For 2019, the powerful vocals of Nathen Aswell have been added alongside Joani Bye, Tim Porter, Peter Juric and Billy Mendoza.  Tim Porter has not brought not only his great voice to the band, but his amazing guitar skills. A funky powerhouse r.section features Billy Mendoza (bass), Rick Hill  (drums) and the Hammond skills of Robbie Buchanan. The brass still kicks ass with Steve Hilliam (tenor sax), Peter Juric (trumpet), Colin Weinmaster (trombone) and Bill “Maseo” Abbott (alto sax).  After 40 years they still enjoy reconnecting with all the people who have missed them as well as finding new fans along the way.
