We play a little Jazz, a little Country, a little Blues and a whole lot of good old fashioned Classic Rock. We have been playing music throughout BC for three decades!
Scott and John have been making music since the seventies, and formed the original TOPAZ in 1980. The band recorded one self titled albumn on the QUIET label which was released in 1981. Over the years musicians have come and gone, but TOPAZ played on. In 2003, Vikki began singing with the band the band; followed by drummer Jerry Brown and the return of guitarist Gerry Hlookoff in 2010.
The band has been involved in a few other projects in the past including the BC Talent Search from the conception of the idea through all three years. We hope to see it back again soon, bigger and better than ever!
Topaz has also been involved with Karen-Lee Batten for many years, being her Abbotsford band long before she became a household name by appearing on Canadian Idol. We have performed at many venues with Karen-Lee over the years including Vancouver’s G.M. Place & Nat Bailey Stadium and Abbotsford’s Rotary Stadium.
