Big band brings ode to Frank Sinatra with Christmas concert in Chilliwack

Bruce James Orchestra and Steve Maddock are coming to Chilliwack Cultural Centre

Experience the dynamic energy of a 17-piece powerhouse big band and an award-winning jazz vocalist coming soon to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

Playing through a vibrant mix of traditional jazz standards, treasured ballads and classic holiday favourites, the Bruce James Orchestra and Steve Maddock come to town on Dec. 5 for a bold and brassy concert full of sultry vocals.

An Evening with Sinatra: Big Band Classics and Holiday Magic is a captivating ode to Frank Sinatra himself.

With a legacy born from the onset of Sinatra-mania in 1942 to his death in 1998, Sinatra was not only a superstar but also an archetypal jazz singer. He turned Christmas jazz concerts into something truly special, and An Evening with Sinatra celebrates the magic he created when he stepped onto the stage.

The Bruce James Orchestra has been providing Big Band music in the Vancouver area since 1999, captivating audiences with not only their exceptional music but with their showmanship. They’ll be joined by award-winning jazz vocalist and crooner Steve Maddock. Their partnership will transport the audience back to the heyday of the Sinatra concert circuit with songs like “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” to “The Little Drummer Boy” and everything in between.

An Evening with Sinatra: Big Band Classics and Holiday Magic is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults, $32 for seniors and $30 for youth, and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
