Upcoming IJO gig

This coming Friday night the Impressions In Jazz Orchestra offers up perhaps it's coolest program yet. We will be playing some great arrangements of the music from My Fair Lady, as arranged by Johnny Richards (best-known for his work with Stan Kenton). We'll also do the medley from West Side Story as made famous by Buddy Rich, which features your blogging drummer.

And to top it off, we'll also play a whole bunch of TV theme tunes from the 60's and 70's, mainly along the lines of spy and detective shows. So not only do I get to wail away on some great jazz, but also stuff like the theme from Hawaii Five-O, and Batman, and Perry Mason, and Star Trek...

Oh, and we'll even have Laurence Wall from CBC Radio as our "Guest MC and Quiz Master"!

For this show we are back at Dominion Chalmers Church, which has wonderful acoustics, but hard wooden pews to sit in. There are some seat pads scattered about, but you might wish to bring your own.
