Lensmen play Zocalos

THE LENSMEN perform this Friday at the Zocalo Café.

The Lensmen collectively bring a lot of years of experience to recreate music that has been around a long time.

The group’s repertoire reaches back to just about the turn of the century, 1900 that is, and through the ’40s. They have also been known to play a little jazz beyond the big band era with Len Wilkie crooning a la Frank Sinatra and are not ashamed to say even a little country.

Some of the oldies but goodies that will be on the program are I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, Harlem Nocturne, Walkin’ My Baby Back Home and Satin Doll.

The Lensmen are Noel Thomas – cornet, Mike Eddy – piano, Len Wilkie – drums, and Greg Sumner – bass.

Greg is the founder of the Cure All Jazz Band and is an encyclopedia of performance knowledge about the traditional style of jazz starting from the 1920s.

The Lensmen perform this Friday at the Zocalo Café in downtown Courtenay.
