Dick dale on salt spring island
This rare and wonderful event will feature Gord on bass clarinet as well as tenor and soprano sax. Olivier will be playing trumpet and flugelhorn. Joining father and son will be long time music collaborators Rob Cheramy on guitar, Dave Emery on drums and a recent arrival to Victoria, bass player Louis Rudner. Leader and trumpeter Derrick Milton says the infectious music of this enthusiastic collection of professional and amateur community musicians will make you smile, dance and clamour for more. Recently, Milton has been taking the band to schools in an effort to keep the jazz tradition alive by bringing it to young people. Reservations are recommended as the band, with five saxes, four trombones, four trumpets and rhythm section, is a big draw at the pub.
