The Octokats
This west coast jazz octet, enjoys entertaining fans who like Cool Jazz. Their style echoes the beat that was vibrant in the Los Angeles and San Francisco club scene during the 50's which featured musicians such as Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and Henry Mancini. Their debut CD "Cool West Coast Jazz Comes to Toronto" was very popular and a 2nd CD is due soon. Back at "On The Verandah" for their fifth year, thy invite you to settle back for a very special evening of Cool Jazz
