The River City Big Band is one of the premier jazz organizations in Edmonton, Alberta.


Our members all share a common enthusiasm for big band jazz.  The music we perform spans from the classics of the big band era through to the modern repertoire of today.


In addition to getting together to play for the sheer exhilaration of making music, we perform in a variety of settings throughout the community including jazz festivals, featured concerts and with guest artists, private functions and school events.

The River City Big Band is a group of musicians
from the metropolitan Edmonton area, dedicated to presenting the music
that defined the big band genre and also committed to exploring the
emerging trends in contemporary big band music.
It is a privilege to stand in front of the ensemble, as its director,
and I am excited to be part of the development of the group’s potential.
