Big Band Dance Music from Victoria BC

The Commodores Big Band has been playing shows and dance events in Victoria since 1975 when it was called the Coppertones. The Commodores Big Band name was chosen in 1984 to reflect Victoria’s nautical history. The band with over 1000 tunes in there library, plays a hugely varied repertoire of music suitable for dances and stage shows. The band is well known to ballroom dancers with gigs at the Butchart Gardens, Empress Hotel, Crystal Garden, Leonardo Da Vinci Centre, Langford Legion, and Edelweiss Club; performs regularly on stage at the Saanich Strawberry Festival and for weddings, anniversaries and conventions at clubs, halls and private residences all over the Greater Victoria region. The band has a reputation for its committed and talented personnel, and consistently fine performances. They embrace a spirit of enthusiasm, drive and professionalism that has determined its success, longevity and popularity with fans of all ages.

The band’s talented vocalist Kim Greenwood is a native Victorian, a successful cross-over artist and loves singing with a big band or a classical ensemble. She has performed with many groups and theatre companies from coast to coast and is on the Voice Faculty at The Canadian College of Performing Arts.

Band leader Mark Fraser is a former school band teacher, now an assistant superintendent in SD 63. The band has benefited from his inspiring leadership since 2005.
