A Company B Christmas & Ugly Christmas Sweater Party at The Dream Cafe!
Doors 6pm Show 8pm
UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER PARTY! The ugly Christmas sweater would still be nothing more than a long-forgotten piece of bad taste without the ugly Christmas sweater party. These parties have not only given new life to old pieces of holiday monstrosity, they have made them quite trendy and exceptionally fun as well.
Special guest during the break!
Company B Jazz Band has been sharing their joy of Christmas since their first year as a band, in 2007. From Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters to inspired original arrangements, the group has amassed an extensive seasonal repertoire, packed with all the harmony, bells and whistles (literally!) a lover of carols could ask for.
For the past five years, the group has been featured on the annual CBC Open House and Food Drive, an event that is broadcast live and aims to raise funds and food for those most in need. As part of the programming, they have the pleasure of colaberating with much-loved Canadian radio personality Margret Gallagher. In 2015, The Ladies of Company B toured with the internationally acclaimed Canadian Tenors founding member Ken Lavigne in his production “The Christmas Road Show Special”. Each year that the busy band’s schedule allows, they join the lineup of musical entertainment for popular Vancouver festivities such as the Vancouver Christmas Market and the Robson ice rink’s 12 Day of Christmas.
This December sees the Ladies of Company B touring BC to bring the band’s Christmas cheer to the BC Interior and Whistler. It’s no secret that the group loves all the music they bring to their listeners, and they get particular joy in creating and transcribing new arrangements every year. Donning red and white dresses for full Christmas flair, they’ve been called Mrs. Claus more than once!
The Ladies are excited to bring Christmas cheer to the Dream Cafe, and look forward to sharing the music of the season!
