As you can see from list mate Bonnie Otto's post, below, she was pianist
for the Monarchs when they were last in Victoria in April.
Jack Percival seems to have held that position from the inception of the
Monarchs in and about 94/95 until 2001. I don't know of his whereabouts now.
I remember him as top notch jazz piano player who was very professional.
This post will definitely bring me out of "lurk mode"
I had the opportunity to work with Lance and Stephanie in April at the
revived Victoria Festival. What a blast that was! I got to know Steph
over the weekend and she is just a doll to work with. She has a very
unique voice and incredible control. Lance's group is outstanding and I
felt very fortunate to be working with them. The Carol Channing /
Liberace act is one of the funniest bits I've ever seen. I was not made
privy to what was going to happen so when it can about, I laughed so
hard I couldn't play. I hope to work with them again.
A Lance original " Bedtime for Bix" is a "must hear". Truly beautiful.
Though it's not OKOM, do try to take a listen to Stephanie's work. In
the bevy of vocalists that is out there, she truly stands out. You
don't hear a voice like this very often. And, what a pro!
