Vespers swing with Bayside Big Band

The 16-piece Bayside Big Band is in the spotlight for this Sunday's (Nov. 6) Jazz Vespers performance at St. John's United Church.

replicates the instrumentation, musical style and spirit of the popular swing dance bands of the 1940s. Their repertoire features dozens of hit jazz vocals, many played from the original vintage charts.  The band also performs custom arrangements penned especially for the band by several gifted band members. A typical set will span from the ‘30s to the ‘80s combining vocal jazz standards, modern ballads, and traditional swing or Latin songs.
