Swing dance favourites The Company B Jazz Band will be exploring the 1920s side of their repertoire for next Thursday's Music at the Museum event in Cloverdale.

Escape to the ‘Roaring `20s’

Surrey Museum brings together the Re-enactors and the Company B Jazz Band for a by-donation all-ages event

Everything will be the ‘bees knees’ and the ‘cat’s meow’ Thursday, July 23 as Music at the Museum presents a special Roaring Twenties-themed show 6-8:30 p.m. at the Surrey Museum plaza (17710 – 56A Avenue).

Visitors are invited to don flapper fringes and two-toned shoes and be prepared to dance at the all-ages, by-donation event, which brings together Surrey’s award-winning heritage theatre troupe The Re-enactors and the riffs and three-part harmonies of popular Lower Mainland swing ensemble the Company B Jazz Band.

Those less agile can pull up a lawn chair and listen to the music and also experience true Surrey stories through story and song presented by the Re-enactors.

Reeve T.J. Sullivan, farmer Zennosuke Inouye and college student Irene Christmas Bourassa will be among the real-life characters who will return to share their insights into what life was like in Surrey in the 1920s.

The Company B Jazz Band, a versatile six-piece group of vocalists/musicians with a love for vintage-style music have become firm favourites for Lindy-Hoppers at swing dance events locally and at jazz festivals across North America.

They feature Juhli Conlin (vocals, mellozoo), Shannon Scott (vocals), Bonnie Northgrave (vocals, trumpet), Jens Christiansen (saxophone, clarinet), Jennifer Hodge (bass, percussion) and Dave Taylor (guitar).

The event will be held rain or shine (moving indoors in the event of the former). For more information, visit www.surrey.ca/heritage or call 604-592-6956.
