Press Release - "Ralph Barrat and The Sharp Seven"

"Ralph Barrat and The Sharp Seven" are thrilled to take the stage with a tribute performance to the songs of Sinatra and Ellington.

The "Sharp Seven"  is a very lively 7 piece combo  featuring some of Vancouver Island’s finest musicians. The 3 piece horn section alone, includes Jack Reynolds on Sax & Flute, Jake Masri on Trumpet, and Jeff Agopsowicz on Trombone. Piling on to the talent is  Michael Eddy on keyboard, holder of a the very distinguished, "Associate in Piano Performance". Grahame Edwards is on Bass and brings over 30 years of exceptional musicianship, that includes both writing and directing. Rounding out the rhythm section on drums, is Rob Peterson.

Tying the entire performance together on vocals, is  Ralph Barrat, whose voice is very reminiscent of Sinatra, Torme, and Bobby Darin. With his distinct vocal style, Ralph will be belting out favourite standards, taking the audience back in time to a Golden Era of Jazz with tunes such as "Mack the Knife", "Take the A Train" and "New York, New York" , to name a few.

Fun, entertaining and nostalgic are a few words that describe this talented combo, which represent a fine example of the enormous pool of Jazz talent within our region.
