Get your dancing shoes on!
The Evergreen Club is thrilled to host an old-fashioned big band Saturday night dance that features the Comox Valley’s very own Georgia Strait Big Band.
This big band really swings with a repertoire of 300 songs, complete with conductor Greg Bush and vocalist Jacki Zbirun. You will certainly be in for a musical treat.
This 19-person big band will perform tunes made famous by The Count, Gillespie and Ellington. Their song selections will also include contemporary tunes along with swing, waltz, Latin or cha-cha – this band plays them all.
The big band Saturday night dance tradition at the Native Sons Hall dates back 70 years when big bands performed to a packed dance floor.
Don’t miss out with tickets just $15 for Evergreen Club members and $18 for non-members. This price includes complimentary dessert, tea, and coffee.
Bartenders will also be at the ready to serve up a bevy for purchase. The band starts up the music at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17 (with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.). Tickets may be available at the door, but we encourage you to grab your tickets in advance. Tickets are available at the Florence Filberg Centre’s office. FMI call 250-338-1000.
