Fanny Bay concert series turns to jazz

Final concert of fall series Nov. 11

The final concert in the Fanny Bay Hall Fall concert series goes Friday, Nov. 11 and will feature the band Deja Blue, presenting an exciting program of tunes from some of the great musicals of out time. Hear what jazz has done to some of the greatest songs from popular musicals.

Lots of variety, some of the greatest swing tunes and ballads in jazz come from musicals. Well known composers like Gershwin, Berlin, Kern and Rogers have given the jazz world fodder to chew on for decades. Others, like Bacharach, have added a new style, and even musicals like The Sound of Music have added one of the most famous jazz waltzes, by way of My Favourite Things.

The evening will feature some of the Comox Valley’s finest musicians: Bill Street on drums, Mike Eddy on keyboard, Carrie Fowler on tenor saxophone, Paul Nuez on trombone, Dale Graham on vocals and Grahame Edwards on bass.

Come on out for a swinging evening of tunes you’ll remember, given a new twist.

Tickets: $15, ($17 at the door) at Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay, Weinberg’s Good Foods in Buckley Bay and Salish Sea Market in Bowser .
