Rangers with Rocco Continenza

This month we have a great singer joining us, Rocco Continenza, by way of the Halton Jazz Singers. We occasionally work together backing the singers up on their shows.

 

Along with many favourite crooner songs made popular by Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme, Bobby Darin, etc., we will have a good selection of the Ranger’s instrumental pieces.

14 July, 2019 with singer D.Ruth

The Jazz Rangers are very happy to be featuring singer D.Ruth this week. She is a jazz singer born and raised in Ontario, first introduced to jazz music by her father. She studied classical music until 18 years of age and graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music, however jazz music was always her first love. D.Ruth has performed regularly with many of our well known local groups, like the Mississauga Big Band, in some of the best known GTA jazz venues.

 

Along with some new material from the jazz standards, we will be adding some soul, pop and other styles to our repertoire.

 

Rain or shine, this is a free event open to the public. The Port Credit Legion features a very reasonable priced cash bar and a BBQ on the terrace.
