The After Hours Big Band has become a vital member of the York Region music scene.

Started some twelve years ago by Newmarket Citizens Band bandsman, Jack Savage, the band was originally a collection of NCB members who wanted to play jazz and swing repertoire after their regular community band rehearsals, hence the name. While still joyously celebrating the Golden Age of 1930s and 1940s swing the band has expanded its horizons and now also draws inspiration from the best of more contemporary composers and arrangers.


More recently, and with demonstrable success, the AHBB has added a vocalist and is working with its knowledgeable music director, trombonist and noted arranger, Dr. Michael Kearns. With steady contributions from its five saxophones, four trombones, five trumpets and a pulsating rhythm section, this dance band can make any occasion swing.

This band has appeared at such highly-rated events as the Aurora Jazz+ Music Festival, the Newmarket Riverwalk Commons Music in the Park, the Unionville Big Band Festival and numerous fund-raisers in York Region to universal and enthusiastic acclaim.
