Highlighting local music talent, the Boomerang concert series returns to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for an evening of music.
On Feb. 26, Sarah Wills will head a lineup of musicians that will fill the Rotary Hall Studio Theatre with jazz and even some rock-and-roll.
“The concert should be a wonderfully relaxing night filled with jazz of all sorts and some acoustic rock. We have three sets that showcase acoustic rock, gypsy jazz, and then classic jazz combos of swings and sorts,” Wills said.
“Gypsy is special because it doesn’t have drums; it has guitar and bass acting as a steady rhythm section to allow the violinist to shine and showcases everyone in varying gypsy jazz styles from slow ballads to fast swing.”
Local rising rock band Tayos will play an acoustic set.
It’ll be a variety of music that ranges from classic swing jazz to the toe-tapping rhythms of gypsy jazz, featuring some jazz violin, and some acoustic rock sprinkled in the middle.
“All the musicians in it are people I’ve played with or have been fellow music acquaintances with, and I’m happy I get to play with some of them again.”
