Sassabrass Specialty Talent Overview


I thought I would send over some info so we can get up to speed, I would love to be your talent supplier!

As a player, I still do lots of corporate events and also perform locally and internationally:

..... and you can see my current and longstanding corporate references at

My music career is thriving, but I find it works best with each brand as its own entity, so I have divided it promotionally between:
1) Gabriel the recording artist, with six Billboard Top 20s, and who does international jazz festivals and concerts worldwide). See more:

2) Sassabrass Specialty Talent, where my own name is not prominent, geared for more transparent corporate events. Sometimes the twain shall meet, but Gabriel the Artist is usually presented as a talent option provided by Sassabrass, not as the driving force. Since we worked together last, I have created an even wider-reaching and diverse talent resource, including my Agent Friendly site where talent can be viewed by you and your clients without fear of circumvention or price comparisons.

Gabriel as Solo Flight- versatile, entertaining & cost effective

Gabriel Mark Hasselbach has been in demand on the Vancouver scene for many years and has fine-tuned the art of entertaining with a band, and as a solo act for restaurant, corporate and public audiences in intimate venues, as well as larger lounges, ie: The Hard Rock Casino, which was a solo gig.

He has a compelling, full sound when performing as a solo act on trumpet, flute, flugelhorn, and vocals, using backing tracks from his many award-winning albums (JUNO, Album of the Year, Instrumentalist of the Year, etc), and classic favourites for the well-heeled crowd.

Gabriel will design a custom performance playlist for your restaurant/lounge or your gala event. He has created a wide demographic solo show that has served him well with regular solo gigs at Hard Rock Casino Lounge (3 yrs), Bin 101 (1 yr), Ten Ten Tapas (4 yrs), Pinnacle Hotel Lounge (3 yrs), Sylvia Hotel (3 yrs occasional) Monk McQueens (5 yrs at 6 nights a week), Dockside Granville Island (3 yrs), Hotel Vancouver (1 yr 6 nights a week), REACH Gala at Tsawwassen Springs and Tsawwassen Mills (4 yrs), etc. 

He is very engaging with any audience and will alternate between a foreground performance and a background ambience that suits your venue at any given time throughout the night (sometimes the crowd wants to talk and sometimes they want to be entertained).  

  1. internationally recognized: and more
  2. versatile- can start classic jazz and morph into smooth or funky jazz-pop (samples below)
  3. small footprint, and can relocate from foyer to main room if needed, sound provided
  4. see extensive Corporate references and Client testimonials, and unsolicited Letters of Appreciation: 12.  and why Gabriel?
Gabriel has been doing corporate events with panache and have a long list of repeat clients, let's team up!
