Way back in 1995 Mr. Gord Hembruff, leader of the Port Moody Community Concert Band, along with some members of that band, decided to form a traditional 18 piece big band, and so the Inlet Jazz Band was formed, with "Inlet" in the name is Burrard Inlet in Port Moody where the band is based.  The original repertoire of the band included big band favorites from pioneering bands in the 1930s and 1940s such as Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman.  Over the years, the repertoire has been expanded to include more modern jazz tunes and sophisticated popular music.  Gord led the band until 2012, when it's current leader Mr. Andrew Clark took over.  Most of the members have been in the band for many years or since its inception, enjoying great friendships and making great music together. We love playing for you as much as you love listening!  We play at various community events, pubs and other venues in the lower mainland area; you can have a listen and find out more on our website inletjazzband.com.  We are for hire for your next event where you if you want more exciting than the standard DJ fare.  Message us on our Contact Us Page or email info@inletjazzband.com.
