The "Island Big Band" consists of six trumpets, five saxes, four trombones, tuba, vocalists, piano, drums, bass, and guitar. This 30-year old Victoria based non-profit aggregation focuses on the music styles from the 1930's to the present. The band has played for dances throughout Southern Vancouver Island, and  has performed regularly in many venues around Victoria BC. The band's library has progressed to contemporary concert Jazz works intended primarily for the enjoyment of the players and their audiences. The players, by invitation, are professionals and semi-professionals with many years of experience often featuring excellent soloists.

When an elder statesman of the music turns 95,  it is important to take notice and pay tribute to a lifetime of music tradition that is passed on to us.

On Monday April 1st 2018 Jerry Bryant turns 95.  To the joy of the members of the Island Big Band,  Jerry agreed to join the band by request over a decade ago and has since added his musical depth of knowledge, humor, and steeped tradition on the piano and vocals to the bands sound.  On the occasion of his 95th birthday The Island Big Band presents a special concert featuring Jerry and a few special guests. The concert  features Jerry on Vocals and Piano, backed up by the 20 piece Island Big Band.  There is also some surprise guest soloists from a lifetime of music joining the band.

In his 95th year Jerry is sending out some musical treasures for all to hear. Don't miss your chance to hear him this April 2nd 2018 at Hermanns Jazz Club!
