Jazzy B Diwali Special: The Vancouver Canucks (Ice Hockey Team) are gearing up for yet another crazy Diwali special. Last year Jazzy B rocked it that hard. He had to be invited back for round 2! This is the third year in a row, the Canucks will dedicate one night to celebrating South Asian culture.
Honouring one of the most popular festivals in the South Asian calendar, Diwali Night this Friday will be “bigger and brighter” than ever, the Canucks say. The ‘Crown Prince of Bhangra,’ Jazzy B is back for a second straight year and will perform during the first intermission.
DJ Heer is once again spinning tracks pre-game at the Party on the Plaza as well as post-game at the Rogers Arena SportsBar after party.
Dhol Drummers and 100 flash mob dancers in traditional dress will kick off the festivities at 5 pm outside of Rogers Arena on the North Plaza. Prior to the 7 pm game against the Washington Capitals, a Bollywood-style Canadian anthem will be sung.
