Interior Connection featuring Campbell Ryga and Bob Robers
March 23, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Great musical changes are taking place in the jazz landscape of Salmon Arm and our neighbouring cities. An exceptional example of these changes is showcased in this week’s Jazz Club performance by Interior Connection, featuring Campbell Ryga on saxophone and Bob Rogers on trombone.
Campbell and Bob first met around 1979 as youngsters in Vancouver, playing in the big band at Vancouver Community College, which was directed by the legendary Dave Robbins at that time. In the following few years, they played together occasionally in different groups throughout Vancouver. Around 1993, Bob moved on to take a teaching position in Revelstoke, and Campbell continued performing, eventually becoming the Juno award winning jazz luminary that he is today.
Last fall, Campbell moved to Kamloops, and Bob immediately saw an opportunity to collaborate once again. He proposed playing together at the Salmon Arm Jazz Club, and Campbell graciously accepted.
Bob and Campbell will be joined by three of Salmon Arm’s finest rhythm section players, consisting of Jordan Dick (guitar), Jake McIntyre-Paul (bass) and Brain Pratt-Johnson (drums). This dynamic group will be playing standard tunes that they all enjoy but jazz fans may be less familiar with. Bob says, “I’m really looking forward to sharing the evening with Campbell and local players that I have come to know well and appreciate in Jordan, Jake and Brian.”
