Bob DeAngelis and his band help mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day

It was a very special evening last month as Juno Award winner Bob DeAngelis and his band played an outstanding concert on a day that marked the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Internationally recognized for his woodwind-playing prowess, DeAngelis has entertained for heads of state, including prime ministers, presidents and the British royal family. He brought his band out to play a 90-minute Live to Air concert of traditional Dixieland tunes here at the Long & McQuade Performance Hall on Thursday, June 6.

Along with an audience of JAZZ.FM91 donors, the band was joined by seven Canadian veterans from Sunnybrook Hospital’s Veterans Centre. Some in the crowd were also there with their dads to share a wonderful experience together ahead of Father’s Day.

The lineup for the show:

  • Bob DeAngelis – clarinet and tenor sax
  • John MacLeod – cornet
  • Al Kay – trombone
  • Phil Disera – guitar
  • Ron Johnston – bass
  • Don Vickery – drums
