The Regina Jazz Orchestra (RJO) is in their fourth year of operation. Their inaugural concert was March 20th, 2013 at the Exchange. This band started by the want and need of the musicians of the city that wanted to have the opportunity to play concert jazz repertoire. The band is a standard instrumentation big band. 5 saxophones, 4 trombones, 4 trumpets, bass, piano, and drums. Featured vocalist Pat Steele. This follows in the tradition of the Bob Moyer Big Band. Bob’s band was the ‘training ground’ where many people in RJO got their start in the playing scene in Regina. Bob’s band, although it is a society big band, was primarily a dance band in the 80’s and performed regular Saturday shows at the old Landmark Inn in the night club Bernsteins. The Bob Moyer Big Band is still performing shows but directed by Brent Ghiglione, with the guidance of Bob’s wife and singer Pat Steel. The musical director of the RJO is Brent Ghiglione. Brent was a member of the Moyer band since 1979 and leads that band today. Brent started his musical career as director of the Regina Police Jr. Bands, then Campbell Collegiate Music program from 1989 to 2006. Brent is currently director of bands at the University of Regina. The band plays a wide variety of music from several different big bands, as well as some original music written from members of the band… and of course Bob Moyer
