The Midnight Blue Jazz Band, based in Calgary, is a “traditional” big band with 17 musicians plus 1 director. Their repertoire spans a wide variety of styles — swing, jazz, blues, latin, funk, classic rock — whatever fits the occasion. Midnight Blue Jazz Band strives to provide a learning and teaching process, top quality music education to maintain a standard of excellence, peer encouragement in a supportive environment and the opportunity to perform in public. They play at business/community parties and public events.
The Razzama Jazz Big Band from Calgary under the direction of Craig Johnson has been together for close to twenty years. Their repertoire includes many of the big band classics as well as more contemporary music related to the Latin, Jazz and Funk music genres. Their singer adds an extra element to their performances bringing a sophisticated sound and level of excitement for the entire audience to enjoy. A few of their members also provide arrangements for the band to perform on a regular basis.
Cochrane’s very own Riverside Jazz directed by Adam Mailman enjoys exploring a variety of styles from classic Basie tunes to Uptown Funk. We are very excited that two of our newest members are adding their smooth vocals to our sound.
Cochrane Music Society is always growing, and if you’re interested in being a part of our jazz band, concert band or choir, contact us through the Contact page and come sit in on a rehearsal or two.
