UPCOMING GIG, FALL 2022

AT THE OTTAWA SUITE

This fall*, come enjoy a 70-minute concept piece for a 12-piece big band, the Rob Frayne Dreamband. This band is made up of local and regional jazz musicians that I have handpicked for their particular sound and talent. 


The suite will pay tribute to Ottawa’s rich and storied music history through a whimsical musical retrospective of three famed venues, the Chaudière Club, the Trocadero, and Le Hibou, interspersed with fascinating anecdotes about some of the famous – and infamous – characters who passed through them.

If you have any info, photos or memories of Trocodero, Chadiere, and Le Hibou, please share!
