Dixieland & Swing: CanUS Jazz Band: Special Guest Bob Cadwallader
Sun. March 4th 2018 3 pm - 6 pm doors at 2 pm (All Ages)
A Victoria jazz icon over the past 50 years, Al Pease brings his trademark swing to all genres and groups he performs with. Steeped in the music of Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Lester Young, and Coleman Hawkins, he draws on the essential roots of jazz to bring his swinging style to the stage. Never overpowering, his performances are a unique blend of nostalgia and the highest quality jazz, that cause listeners to crane their necks for a closer listen. Adding to the mix today is Bob Cadwallader, well-known local trombone player to join Mike and Al on the front line! Recently in the Donnie Clark All Stars band that wowed sell-out crowds, Bob is a long time member of Dixieland Express Jazz Band.
Some of the best musicians in Victoria form this band and its unique presentation of dixieland and swing favourites at everyone's first choice jazz listening and dancing venue. A long running tradition in Victoria although CanUS has also performed in jazz festivals across North America. Come. Enjoy!
