Final Simms Park summer concert on Sunday

Catch Ralph Barrat this Sunday at Simms Park.

This Sunday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m., Simms Park will feature a free performance of Ralph Barrat and the Sharp Seven with a special tribute to the songs of both Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington.

This concert was originally planned for Aug.  30, but was rescheduled due to weather. This will be the last performance of a successful Simms Summer Concert 2015 season.

“We were really looking forward to giving this performance at the end of August, but Mother Nature had other plans,” says Ralph Barrat. “We hope jazz fans in the will come out on Sept. 13 and enjoy the show.”

Take a seat as the band transports you to the golden era of jazz as they  recognize and honour the amazing songs and career of Frank Sinatra. Enjoy songs such as “Lady is a Tramp”, “Take the A-Train” and “Fly Me to the Moon,” just to name a few.

This dynamic seven-piece combo includes  Barrat on vocals with a three-piece horn section including Jake Masri (trumpet), Jeff Agopsowicz (trombone), and Rachel Fuller (alto). The band also includes Grahame Edwards (bass), Michael Eddy (keyboard) and Neil Clark (drums).
