In memory of...
We are saddened, as are many in the Edmonton area, to hear of the passing of music legend Bobby Cairns in November 2020. He provided our band with his wisdom and good nature; it was always a treat when he directed us to become better musicians. We will miss him.
The C-Jam Big Band honours the memory of Dean Perkins who passed away in July 2011 at much too young an age. Dean was a fine trumpet player and an all-around great guy who always brought his joy in life to the work he did with us.
