Company B Jazz Band-August 4th at Medici’s
An incredible night of entertainment on Friday, August 4th at Medici’s. The Ladies of Company B bring their hugely popular and entertaining act to Medici’s.
Company B Jazz Band is Vancouver’s foremost vintage jazz harmony group. A 4 piece ensemble featuring a female vocal trio (à la the Andrews and Boswell Sisters) framed by clarinet/sax, guitar, and upright bass, “the Company” has been entertaining the masses since 2007 with their tight blend, driving rhythms, creative arrangements, sharp image, and charming wit. To date, the group has released 3 albums and performed all over their native British Columbia as well as the USA and China.
The members of Company B Jazz Band met in the Jazz Studies Program at Capilano University, where they all gained a firm foundational training in modern jazz.
After more than 7 years performing together, Company B Jazz Band has become a very popular act in Greater Vancouver’s thriving swing dance community, notably in Vancouver’s Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival (2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015), and the Sacramento Jazz Festival in California. The group enjoys frequent airplay on CBC Radio 1 and 2, having been featured on Hot Air, Canada Live, Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café, and in live broadcasts on The Early Edition for British Columbia Food Bank Day in 2012, 2013, and 2014
Company B Jazz Band has released 3 full-length albums – Company B Jazz Band (2009), Rock & Roll (2011 – named for a 1930s ditty about being out in a boat), and A Company B Christmas (2013).
