Jen Hodge All Stars are Vancouver’s most authentic and most in-demand early jazz band.  Comprising some of the city’s best young jazz musicians, the group is remarkably versed in the music of the 1910s, ’20s, and ’30s, taking their cues from past greats such as early Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, and Jelly Roll Morton. 

The group’s extensive repertoire, versatility, boundless energy, and deep love for musical spontaneity makes each All Stars performance different from the next and keeps listeners, dancers, and fellow musicians all coming back for more.

Jen Hodge is a versatile bass player and one Vancouver’s most sought-after musicians, working as both a bandleader (Jen Hodge All Stars, Company B Jazz Band, etc) and a sideman (Diane Lines’ JUMP!, Universal Gospel Choir, Bria Skonberg, etc). Comfortable – and typically excited! – in a huge variety of musical settings, Jen has performed all over Canada, the USA, France, Spain, China, and in the Caribbean, and appears on more than a dozen albums. She has directed and played with groups for CBC Radio and CTV productions, is a regular at major swing dance events all over the Pacific Northwest, and frequently does top-call corporate work as well. First and foremost, Jen has a profound love for making music with other people and for performing, which is evident to everyone who hears her play.
