Sue McKenzie

Sue has a unique place in The Moonliters history, since she was the first woman to play with the band. She was very young back in the late 70s when she first played trombone with the band.

On August 31, 1986 The Moonliters performed for a wedding at the Cecil Green Park House on the grounds of U.B.C. It wasn't just any wedding however, it was Sue's wedding that took place on that perfect, sunny day in August. Sue was really proud to have The Moonliters highlighted at her wedding--so proud in fact, that half way through the program she changed out of her wedding dress and did a solo introduction to the tune You Will Never Know How Much I love You, by Harry Warren.

As so often happens in life, life gets busy, and things change. Sue moved on from The Moonliters for a number of years. Then in 2017 she reached out to the band and let us know that she was available to play if needed. Since that time she has been a regular with our trombone section whenever we are short a player.

Welcome back to The Moonliters family. It is good to have you back!
