It’s still summer, and the After Hours Big Band is still swingin’ in the sunshine. We have two events in August that promise to be highlights of the year.
On Sunday the 13th, we will return to the Grey Goat Pub and Grill for our third Big Band Brunch of 2017. The first two brunches were great parties, and this one could be the best yet. We have planned a program of modern, catchy songs, with the spotlight on the vocal talents of George and Jess. Entertainers extraordinaire!
We’ll play for two hours beginning at 12:30 p.m. The Grey Goat, at 74 Main Street South in Newmarket, offers very good food in their big shady patio. Phone for reservations at 905-898-0418.
The summer will end on a high note at the Newmarket Music Festival. Going back to the festival’s origins in Aurora eight years ago, the After Hours Big Band has performed every year at this storied event – designated one of the top 100 community festivals in Ontario!
Newmarket Riverwalk Commons is the site of the festival, newmarketmusicfestival.com, August 25-27. Our set will begin at 4:00 on the Sunday afternoon. You’ll hear some songs you haven’t heard us play before, and some that no other big band can deliver. Come to the festival and say hello to your friends in the After Hours band!
