    Called a “jazz sensation” by one writer, with another calling Heather Ferguson’s music, “lush, expertly performed, with an engaging setlist and…she will fill the room with her silky-smooth notes”. Heather’s journey to music was long and winding but the singer, based in Victoria, Canada, is becoming known for her interpretations of great 20th century songs.

    A family move took Ferguson from Toronto to a new home in Victoria, Canada, where she was one of the first to enroll in jazz vocals at the Victoria Conservatory’s newly opened Chywll Contemporary School. After that it was just layers and layers of music for years after. During that time she found like-minded musicians who wanted to start a band so she cornered the great bassist Joey Smith at a gig one night to ask him to coach.

    Knox Presents... "Holiday Horns" featuring The Festive Brass, a 12 piece Brass and Perscussion ensemble, joined by the Village Voices Choir with Artistic Director Patricia Plumley.

    Over 20 years or so ago, Butchart Gardens in beautiful Victoria B.C. wanted to add some live music for patrons as they strolled through the light displays during their holiday season. A brass group was hired to play ‘festive’ music toggling with a group of traditional carolers.

     Throughout the years, the brass became extremely popular as we combined top-notch musicianship with quirky arrangements of well-loved holiday classics, and some additional cheeky humour interacting with our audiences.

     With a library approaching two hundred arrangements, almost all of which have been written by the members of the group, we playfully boast the ability to play almost any Christmas tune upon request, and we may even tell you: "If we don't know it, we'll fake it."

     One year we just simply decided to take the show ‘on the roa
