The Stone Frigate Big Band brings the big band sound to a playlist that features the greatest hits of the swing era and the American Songbook, alongside R&B and pop music favourites and well-known Latin and jazz charts.

The Stone Frigate Big Band was formed in October 1995 at HMCS UNICORN, Saskatoon’s Naval Reserve Division, one of the Royal Canadian Navy’s “stone frigates”. Over the years we have played at public and private functions at locations around Saskatchewan that include Club Jazz at the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, The Bassment, TCU Place, a number of hotel ballrooms and the Dekker Theatre in North Battleford. We have been regulars at Danceland, the famed swing-era dance hall at Manitou Beach, for over a decade.

We believe in the importance of encouraging young musicians to continue playing after high school and, over the years, have provided support and funding to a number of high school band programs and a scholarship for members of audition bands at the University of Saskatchewan.

This show is part of The Neighbourhood Pop-Up Series at various locations throughout Saskatoon, made possible by partnerships with the Broadway Business Improvement District, the Riversdale Business Improvement District, Downtown Saskatoon, the community of Brighton, and The Prairie Lily.
