Big Band Big Bang 2019 @ Vancouver Alpen Club
May 3 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$20
We’re excited to announce that Big Band Big Bang! is back for 2019, featuring the AROKIS Centre of Music big bands Impressions and Urbana. The event is again being held at the popular Vancouver Alpen Club.
Big Band Big Bang! is the annual AROKIS Centre of Music Society fundraiser. The event helps us fulfill our mission of promoting and preserving big band jazz in the Vancouver area. For lovers of the music, it’s a rare opportunity to hear two of Vancouver’s top community big bands. It also gives the bands a chance to experience each others’ repertoire and music skills.
The Vancouver Alpen Club offers comfortable cabaret style seating and a bar that specializes in German beer and wine. You may also want to visit the Club’s excellent German restaurant before the concert (reservations strongly recommended!). Big Band Big Bang! is more of a listening experience, but there will be space for dancing if you’re so inclined.
Tickets are $20 for general admission, $15 for seniors and students. You can purchase tickets from band members or at the door the night of the performance.
First set is at 8pm, second set at about 9:15.
This is a 19+ event as alcohol is being served.
If you’re a fan of big band jazz, you won’t want to miss this unique experience.
