Strathcona Big Band: An Evening of Big Band Favorites
The Strathcona Big Band is taking to the stage at the River City Players Theatre for the first time! A regular favourite at the Coachman Pub and the Avalanche Bar in Courtenay,the Strathcona Big Band is Campbell River’s very own jazz, swing, big band. Primarily comprised of local musicians the 17 piece ensemble performs high energy, professionally presented selections of music ranging from Miller to Miles; In the Mood to All Blues.
In addition to fabulous solos performed by various members of the band and backed by a solid hard charging rhythm section, Amy Lelliot’s gorgeous vocals round out the performance. This will be the band’s first foray into a formal performance at theatre. Don’t let that fool you though, this fun energetic group will have your toes tapping and your heads bobbing!
