In 2001, blues singer John Hammond released Wicked Grin, a collection of songs written by his friend, the musical icon Tom Waits, with Waits at the helm as producer. Now, in an exclusive-to-Vancouver, two-nights-only special performance, Hammond – with musical direction by celebrated producer Steve Dawson – brings the album to the stage, joined by musical luminaries, including JUNO-winning bluesman Jim Byrnes, jazz songstress Jill Barber, guitar master Dawson and the legendary Los Lobos frontman David Hidalgo, with house band Chris Gestrin (keys), Jeremy Holmes (bass) and Geoff Hicks.
