CB Johnson Big Band (previously WTW Big Band)

2020 update: The WTW Big Band was renamed the CB Johnson Big Band in 2019 in honour of the late CB “Cool” Johnson who was the Music Director for many years and an integral member of the music community. CB was a kind and generous musician and facilitator that generated a safe and nurturing environment for new and existing musicians alike and will be greatly missed. RIP CB.

Black Sheikhs

The Black Sheikhs musicians and dancers photo, 2016

In 2016 I joined dancer/choreographer Jessica Murray and dancer Matt Coghill in a new live music and dance show. With music played by the pop and rock vintage jazz style band, The Black Sheikhs, there’s tap dance, Lindy Hop and comedy. For the show I’m excited to have dusted of my shiny silver, LaDuca Roxie tap shoes to pay homage to Ann Miller’s Too Darn Hot tap routine complete with a hot pink costume with tassels, a pair of long pink gloves and a fan!
