Jazz Walk at Ironwood June 18

The WNBB big band has been invited to play Calgary’s Summer Jazz Festival. We are playing as part of Jazz Walk generously sponsored by TD Canada Trust and the Inglewood BIA. Popular, family-friendly, free events throughout the beautiful Inglewood/9th Avenue Strip.

Come see us at Ironwood Stage and Grill at 2PM, after the wonderful young JazzYYC lab band.

Pat Belliveau will be joining us to reprise his seminal role as our baritone sax player. Wendy Lomnes and MJ de Waal will be appearing on vocals.

Is Calgary a Big Band Haven? Check out the article from EverydayTourist. Richard White quotes our own John Towell “I don’t know if Calgary is a unique haven for big bands. It’s possible something similar happens in many cities. But it’s certainly ‘under the radar’ – people are often surprised to discover the level of activity here. And the big bands are just part of the picture. Add in concert bands, orchestras, choirs and numerous smaller groups and you realize there are a huge number of Calgarians actively involved in our music scene.”
