ALEX PANGMAN’s BIO:
Although Alex Pangman grew up a couple of generations late to have sung with Teddy Wilson, the vibrant young vocalist is proud to be known as Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing. With pipes aplenty, Juno nominee Pangman possesses the requisite taste, talent and the historical knowledge of an avid record collector to breathe new life into the sturdy standards of the classic jazz era.
A superb song stylist with growing compositional chops, the gifted Toronto scene maker has built a loyal fanbase amongst jazz listeners and dancers alike through her critically acclaimed work with her stacked Alleycats in the studio, nightclubs and concert halls across Canada including three stellar showcases at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. (Her Alleycats band includes Peter Hill on piano, Glenn Anderson on drums, Chris Banks on bass, and John Macleod & Brigham Phillips on cornet/trumpet, Ross Wooldridge on clarinet & sax, and/or Drew Jurecka on violin and reeds, with Jesse Barksdale on guitar.)
For this special fundraiser Alex has kindly agreed to perform with the Jimmy Stahl Big Band! We’re sure you will enjoy the show!
The JIMMY STAHL BIG BAND BIO:
Founded in 1977, The Jimmy Stahl Big Band has headlined tours while performing extensively throughout Ontario, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Beginning as a gospel big band with “Swingin’ in the Pews”, the band has recently added two more showcases-“American Songbook” and “Sounds of Sinatra”.
The JSB have had the honour of collaborating with a variety of Grammy Award and Dove Award-winning artists such as Ralph Carmichael, Dave Boyer, Phil Driscoll, Ron Kenoly, and Kathy Troccoli. Some of these collaborations were in-studio recordings, while others were live tapings of television specials that aired on NBC, TNN, Global and CTS television networks. Individually as sidemen, band members have worked with legends Doc Severinsen, Tom Jones, Debbie Boone, Pat Boone, Vic Damone, The Yellow Jackets, and Ray Charles to name just a few.
Audiences everywhere have fallen in love with the Jimmy Stahl Big Band, and we trust you will as well!
