Just Jazz Presents: Robert Young and the Big Beat Band
Friday, February 8, 2019 - 21:00 - 23:30

Robert Young is a Winnipeg raised, Calgary based Jazz crooner . 

He was inspired to pursue his musical path as a result of ownership of the 

Beat Niq Jazz Club and Bistro Piq Niq in Calgary. 

His interaction and resulting performances with many of Canada’s renowned 

Jazz players such as Juno Award winner P.J. Perry, and Calgary’s own Juno nominated 

Al Muirhead have had a great influence on his career.

The style and influence, phrasing, and aura of the late great Frank Sinatra has had a huge influence on Rob’s life and vocal development as has the elements of the Great American Songbook.

From national Jazz Festivals, public and private performances, duos to eighteen piece Big Bands, Robert has been performing music in the style of Sinatra across North America since 1998. 

On Feb. 8th, 2019, Rob will be joined by Juno nominee Al Muirhead (trumpet), pianist Derek Stoll, and drummer John DeWaal..
