Congratulations to my brother Oliver Gannon for Order of Canada appointment - 01/04/18 03:19 PM

Congratulations to my brother Oliver Gannon for his appointment to the Order of Canada on Dec. 29, 2017.

As many of you know, Oliver Gannon is my brother and a great jazz guitarist. He has also worked with PG Music programs over the years on programs such as Band-in-a-Box. Although he has made many great contributions to our programs, his main work is his own musical career.

Oliver was recently appointed to the Order Of Canada in recognition for "his achievements as a musician."

The Order of Canada is one of our country's highest civilian honours, and recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. 125 New Appointments to the Order of Canada were announced on December 29th, and on the list is Oliver Gannon for his achievements as a musician and for his contributions to Vancouver’s jazz scene - CONGRATULATIONS!


If you're interested, the complete list of the 125 newest appointments to the Order of Canada list here https://www.gg.ca/document.aspx?id=17061&lan=eng
There's also a bio of Oliver here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_Gannon

To be clear and avoid any confusion.... there are two brothers... Peter Gannon is the "Band-in-a-Box"/PG Music guy, and Oliver Gannon is the jazz guitarist who just won the Order of Canada.

Congrats big brother!

This is very cool! A nice way to be honored for your life's work.

The list itself is an interesting read. The variety of work and professions is "refreshing". Honoring so many from such a wide range - Nice to see something positive these days.

I did not know that William Shatner was Canadian!

Congratulations, Oliver!

Just to be clear.

PG Music won the Order of Canada and Oliver Gannon is now in charge of PG Music??

No seriously that is awesome. Congrats to the whole family and the the whole country!!!!!

Please extend my congratulations to Oliver on this accomplishment. As a BC "boy" I have heard Oliver "live" a few times at the cellar, and with Pacific Salt. A well deserved recognition. Brought back a few old memories as few of the players he is associated also sat in with our swing band a few times. DennisD
