Local BC paper reviews charitable eclectic Big Band

“The damp weather couldn’t keep jivers from dancing the evening away at the Brackendale Art Gallery (BAG) on Saturday, October 20 for another “Village Music at the BAG” series. With doors opened wide, patrons of all ages corralled into Thor Froslev’s cozy fireplace lit gallery to behold the talents of the regionally named Sea ‘T’ Sky Big Band,” Anne Bright writes for The Squamish Reporter. The article continues, “There were visitors from as far away as Chilliwack and the Okanagan, all to tune into the fairly new band. Sea ‘T’ Sky Big Band has 16 local players, and one vocalist, ranging in age from 18 to 81. The youngest member, Naiomi Lu, plays the trumpet and the oldest, retiree Dick Grooms, plays the saxophone. They deliver a fun mixture of tunes ranging from the 1930’s to the songs of today. At the BAG, band members seem to enjoy themselves as much as the audience.” Read the full article here. | Raymond Matt, CFP, CLU, TEP, CHS
