  • The Heavyweights Brass Band Monday June 29, 2015 - Doors open at 7:00 pm, Sloan auditorium (NB Legion lower level)
    The Battlefords Jazz Society’s last show of the year is, as always, co-sponsored with the help of the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival. This year we have a fantastic show for you as The Heavyweights Brass Band rolls into town and down on into the Sloan. From their website… Whether receiving props from The Roots on Twitter, jamming with puppets on CBC Kids' Mamma Yamma, recording with the legendary Giovanni Hidalgo or being championed by influential DJ and tastemaker Gilles Peterson, The Heavyweights Brass Band pack a one-two punch of crossover appeal and respect from music's elite. Inspired by the New Orleans brass band tradition, the Heavyweights' original stance keeps one foot firmly rooted in the rich legacy of jazz, while one foot steps forward into the future. Like the music's originators, the Heavyweights are unafraid to incorporate influences from disparate areas of the musical spectrum, from pop hits of the day to original compositions, from R&B and funk throwbacks to the infectious rhythms of Latin America, all woven together with the thread of adventuresome sophistication. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Tickets available at NuFloors, Bee-J's Office, or phone 306-446-3210.
