Matinée Café: Grey Jazz Big Band
Shenkman Arts Centre hosts an afternoon one-hour performance featuring the sounds of the 1930s, ‘40s, and ‘50s, expertly performed by a 16-piece big band and with coffee and treats after the show.
Formed three decades ago at the Good Companions Centre, the Grey Jazz Big Band offer an entertaining programme of music ranging from the big band era to popular modern hits.
Over the years, the band has performed at high-profile events including a Royal Visit, the opening of the Canadian War Museum and the Ottawa Jazz Festival, delighting audiences both young and young-at-heart. This late-autumn matinee features songs from swing to the sixties!
