Calgary Jazz Group Performs Aboard Historic Sternwheeler

The Jazz Is Society of Alberta continues their annual tradition of jazz, cocktails and sunsets on board the S.S. Moyie, an historic sternwheeler that sails on Calgary’s Glenmore Reservoir at Heritage Park, on Saturday, July 25th.

Jazz on the Lake, a one-hour jazz cruise, features members of the Resident Artists Ensemble, Jazz Is Society (RAEJIS), with John Reid (saxophone), Allistair Elliott (trumpet), Gary Wolfe (guitar) and Kodi Hutchison (bass).

The evening’s presentation begins with funk, cool jazz and standard tunes on board the vessel while docked for cocktails and snacks, then continues through the entire cruise and afterward, on the observation deck for more music post-sailing music (weather permitting).
