The RoofTop Jazz Band evolved out of a group of passionate Jazz lovers dedicated to honing their skill in an ensemble setting. The newly minted “RoofTop” jazz band is the Orangeville Jazz Society’s no-so-little ‘Big Band’, and draws material from the great American songbook of Jazz standards, as well as original works commissioned from up-and-coming arrangers. Under the artistic direction of Orangeville’s resident sax man, Ryan Grist, the ensemble provides a natural progression for local students to continue their playing, as well as others coming back to their instruments as an adult. From professionals, to aspiring students and all levels in between, the RoofTop Jazz Band’s focus is keeping things swinging, and is becoming known for their engaging and relaxed performance style. If you love the sound and power of a big band, the RoofTop Jazz Band is your ticket to some serious fun!
