The Story...

An evening of big band favorites featuring the best tunes of the era and presented by award winning talent from the island and beyond.

You may have seen one or more of the band members perform with the Jive Kings, the PEI Symphony, Symphony Nova Scotia, Maritime Brass, the Charlottetown Jazz Ensemble, Ekletikos New Music Project, and either on stage or “under” the stage as part of the Charlottetown Festival. Between them, they have garnered numerous awards and recordings, and are faculty members of a number of prestigious college and universities in the country.
