Jazz Dance night with Rob Young and the Big Beat Band
Saturday, March 15, 2014, Doors: 7:15 pm (possibly earlier); music: 8 pm, Cover: $15 for everyone; cash only at the Door
Last year’s event was a full house, and we expect a repeat of that this year. For this event we have created an online reservation system. If you want to make an advanced reservation for this evening, then copy and paste the following:
These reservations must be presented by 7:45 pm so we can allow others in before the performance. Around 20 non-reserved tickets are available at the door but please come early. We had to turn people away last time.
If you are a fan of Frank Sinatra, then an evening with Rob is a must attend. The timbre of his baritone voice not only makes him a great interpreter, it actually makes him sound like Frank. Complemented by his Big Beat Band, he brings back to life many of the more traditional tunes in the American Song book. Whether you like to dance or just come for a good time, an evening with Rob and the Big Beat makes you glad you came.
March 15 will be an occasion to dance and swing to the music of the Great American Songbook. As a former Jazz club owner, Rob had the opportunity to further fuel his desire to pursue his own musical dreams, and back in 1998 formed the first incarnation of “The Big Beat Band”. He has performed throughout western Canada in configurations ranging from trios up to 18-piece big bands. This dance event will feature the renowned seven piece “Big Beat Band”
The Big Beat Band will be: Robert Young: vox, Derek Stoll: piano, John DeWaal: drums, Kai Poscente: bass, Al Muirhead: trumpet, Richard Harding: saxophone(s), Brian Walley: trombone
As you know parking opportunities are limited in the neighbourhood. Up to now the only possibility was to park along the park on the west side of Cliff Street. A new arrangement is now available as well. CBM visitors can park behind the Cliff Bungalow-Mission Arts Centre which is located approximately 100 meters north of the Community Centre on the north side of the park. Entrance is off Royal Avenue SW.
