Ready for some BIG SOUND? The Okanagan Valley Big Band will fill the room with their lively tunes for your enjoyment. The Okanagan Valley Big Band was originally known as the Mark Rose Big Band, but changed its name in early 2014.

The band revitalizes the classic music of the Big Band era with jazz and swing hits from the likes of Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Artie Shaw. They also bring their unique big band sound to a variety of songs and styles, including Latin, funk, blues, and rock. Live music lovers and dancers alike can find something to love in this energetic and elegant music that encompasses foxtrot, quickstep, samba, jive, and more.

The Okanagan Valley Big Band will be onstage at the Vernon Jazz Club (3000-31 Street) on Saturday, March 25th at 8 PM.
