The 16-piece Arrowsmith Jazz Band has been wowing crowds for more than three decades with its drive, power and precision. The band returns for another encore performance at Pat’s House of Jazz at the Osborne Bay Pub in Crofton on Sunday, April 15 at 2 p.m.
From big band ballads to driving swing, Arrowsmith’s eclectic repertoire includes a wide variety of compositions and arrangements by Rick Hirsh, Greg Bush and many other great composers and arrangers.
Based in Oceanside, the band is an impressive mix of professional musicians, school and university instructors and some of the area’s best student musicians from the mid-Island.
It includes five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones and piano, bass and drums, under the leadership of Dave Stewart.
This show is one of a Sunday afternoon jazz series presented by Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society.
It runs every Sunday from 2 p.m. at Pat’s House of Jazz in the Osborne Bay Pub, 1534 Joan Ave. in Crofton. Admission is $20.
