Busy Vancouver bass player Jen Hodge is a versatile musician who can be found playing with a wide variety of artists all over the world. When Jen is leading the band, she likes it hot – hard swinging grooves, boisterous New Orleans style horns, cheeky lyrics, clever arrangements, plenty of spontaneous fun, and an infectious love for making music. Jen’s expertise in traditional jazz and swing has taken her to stages across Canada, the USA, China, Spain, France, the UK, and the Caribbean. At home, Jen can be found leading a band on Wednesday nights at Guilt & Co. Connect with Jen on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
