Big Band Extravaganza Sunday

The Evergreen Club once again will host the third annual Big Band Extravaganza this Sunday at the Florence Filberg Centre from 1 to 4 p.m.

The afternoon will feature two full 17-piece big bands, namely our local Georgia Strait Big Band and Parksville's Arrowsmith Big Band.

Both feature traditional tunes from the Great American Songbook as well as contemporary big band arrangements.

Big band music has had a presence in the Comox Valley for 70 years.

The Georgia Strait Big Band is professionally conducted by Prof. Gregor Bush of Vancouver Island University. Band personnel are local amateur players who work hard at delivering precise interpretations of that big band sound.

The Arrowsmith Big Band personnel are packed with professional and semi-pro players who precisely delver sophisticated charts with ease.

Advance tickets are at Bop City and Long & McQuade.

For information, call Courtenay Recreation at the Filberg Centre office at 250-338-1000 or visit the club’s website at www.evergreenseniorsclub.org.
