Originally formed in 1978 as Shox Johnson and his Jive Bombers, this high energy band has been jivin’ and swingin’ at clubs and jazz festivals in and around the Toronto area for over 45 years. Gaining a reputation for lively, toe-tapping jazz with a bluesy edge. Popular at some of Canada’s top festivals, their “Little Big Band” format gives the group an opportunity to explore the entire history of jazz and blues, with a focus on Swing, Boogie-woogie, and vintage R&B. With band leader, John Karpenko, mixed with lots of humour, this show is jam-packed with some of Canada’s top musicians and is always loads of fun for everyone!

The Jive Bombers are John Karpenko (Trombone), Alex Dean (Sax), Bob Brough (Sax), Johnny Johnson (Sax), Brigham Phillips (Trumpet), Gord Sheard (Piano), Al Henderson (Bass), Curtis Smith (Drums). Special guest vocalist Johnny Max!

Proudly presented by Meaford Hall as part of the 2024 Summer Season.
