Prime Time Big Band Brunch with SPECIAL GUEST Campbell Ryga!

  • The Ironwood Stage and Grill 1229 9 Avenue Southeast Calgary, AB, T2G 0S9 Canada (map)

The Prime Time Big Band has been playing the Ironwood Brunch show every other Saturday for 14 years now. It's an awesome opportunity to hear a high level big band play fresh repertoire every other week. I was a member of the band back in the early 2000s before taking a sabbatical to get my Masters and have been back in since 2011. This show is always a lot of bang for your buck and a great choice for students looking to check out a professional big band.

This show we're featuring special guest Campbell Ryga on saxophone!

Campbell was born in Edmonton, raised in Summerland BC and lived and worked in Toronto, NYC and Vancouver. He was voted Alto Sax of The Year in 2000 for Canada, has 3 Juno Awards, 2 other nominations and played on  Michael Buble's recording " Crazy Love " that received a Grammy in 2010. CAMPBELL has toured internationally on 26 separate occasions to Western Europe and Latin America. He is a founding member of The Hugh Fraser Quintet and has toured across Canada on 24 separate occasions. He has performed on over 72 Jazz Recordings and has recorded with the best in the business including Renee Rosnes, Neil Swainson, P.J. Perry, Ross Taggart and Terry Clarke.

It’s going to be awesome! Hope to see you out!
