Dock Side Drive is one of the West Coast’s hottest swing & show bands.  Fresh off theatre and festival performances through BC, this dynamic band entertains audiences with the music of the 1940s, 50s & 60s.  At its core, Dock Side Drive features local Victoria musicians, Joey Smith, Don Leppard, Anita Bonkowski, Heather Burns (rhythm section); Dave Flello, Paul Wainwright (horns); Chris Newstead, Fran Bitonti, and Angela Ireland (vocals).  They offer a blend of vocal and instrumental tunes that will usher you through more than three decades of song, including the music of Ray Charles, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, The Beatles and other favourites.  You won’t want to miss the chance to see and hear this ensemble performing well-known swing, blues, jazz and show tunes!  It’s guaranteed you’ll be swingin’ and singin’ along!

The band hosts a roster of seasoned and established musicians from the Victoria area, all of whom perform regularly both together and with other bands.  In addition to individual international and national touring and performing careers, many of these veteran musicians have been seen together on the Dixie, Swing and Jazz festival circuit. Their large repertoire of tunes includes Train Kept a Rollin’, Mac the Knife, Route 66, Blue Skies, What’ll I Do, Hit That Jive Jack, Hallelujah I Just Love Him So, Jump, Jive and Wail, A-Train, Come Together, Puttin on the Ritz, At Last, Sweet Georgia Brown.  http://www.heatherburns.ca/default.aspx?PageID=1026
