After Hours Big Band

Formed in 2006 by members of the Newmarket Citizens Band, After Hours is dedicated to advancing and modernizing big-band swing music while celebrating its legacy. Performances, led by trombonist and educator Dr. Michael Kearns, feature stirring vocals by George Marian and Jessica Owen, as well as jazz solos by members of the trombone, trumpet, saxophone and rhythm sections.

After Hours Big Band — For the Fun Of It!

The After Hours Big Band brings musical energy to any occasion where people are looking for fun.

We play for love of modern swing music, and it shows. The band has been delighting audiences at concerts, festivals, fundraisers and private events for two decades.

After Hours’ repertoire includes everything from contemporary jazz and popular music to traditional swing favourites. Audiences appreciate our danceable melodies as well as creative solos from the saxophone, trombone, trumpet and rhythm sections.

And vocals? There’s nobody like our George Marian and Jess Owen. Hear for yourself!
