Jazz Out West

light jazz & favourite standards

This is a group never-to-be-missed! Iris’ smooth jazz stylings will relax you, and the gents are oh-so-cool! Jazz Out West is a truly professional group, having earned their band touring stripes on many a cruise ship.  Let their music take you away on a mental cruise of your own. Here’s hoping they’ll have some CDs for sale….

Music in the Park: A Photo Flashback

Music in the Park is a popular program featuring performers every Thursday night in July and August on the riverside behind the  CPR Station in Oliver, BC.  Rock, country, jazz, classical, choral, gospel, folk and world music — there’s a sound for everyone!  Here are some photos of the July entertainers:
