Dr. B and The Biscuit – About the Artists

Jerry Boey and Wendy Biscuit ‘Dr. B and The Biscuit’ are both veteran, Vancouver BC performers who lately have been spending their time touring across the continent playing their uniquely styled, original swing music combined with jazz and blues classics. Biscuit, a prolific songwriter deeply rooted in her Ozark Mountain family tree, has licensing contracts in place with Warner Bros. Television for her original compositions as well as co-writing credits attached to her peers and mentors. With her parlour guitar and carefully crafted lyrics, she weaves in and out of Latin grooves, foot stumping train beats and gypsy swing while Dr. B, hailing from a history of Saskatchewan big bands while penning swing- era arrangements throughout University, leads the melody and improvisation with his 1948 Martin Committee Trumpet. Since joining forces in 2016, their combined talent has been shared with audiences in Nashville, Boston, Los Angeles, London England, Denver, New York and across Canada. They have been involved with multiple local projects, sharing the stage and recording with many of Canada’s finest jazz and blues musicians. There is no slowing down for these two artists, and they always look forward to bringing the best of what they love to every stage, connecting with those who share their passion for live music.

Manning Park 10km & 21km Trail Race – from Fraser Valley Trail Races
Jul 27 all-day

This is a new 10km & 21km trail race through Manning Park, presented by Fraser Valley Trail Races.

See all the info and register at: http://fvtr.ca/manningpark/#races

“Manning Park is an absolute treasure in the heart of the Cascade Mountains! It has rewarding elevation gains, viewpoints that will leave you breathless, and mile after mile of gorgeous single track cutting through valleys, around lakes and over rivers. Racing in Manning Park is a great opportunity to make a fun get away with family and/or friends. Besides the trails, there’s a beautiful campground and resort with cabins where you can stay the weekend, a gorgeous lake to canoe and swim in, and plenty of trails to bring your bike to enjoy a ride!

We are excited to share this beautiful part of BC with you, and whether you run the 10 km trails around Lightning Lake, or challenge the 21 km route, you will finish your race with a new appreciation for being “a world away”, even if just for a couple hours! But of course, we hope you’ll stay a bit longer to enjoy even more of Manning on your own.

All of our races are sanctioned through BC Athletics.

Thank you for considering Fraser Valley Trail Races and we hope to see you at any of our events in 2019.

Questions? Please email either of the FVTR race directors Jenny ([email protected]) and Katrina ([email protected]). We hope to hear from you and see you on course!”
