The Crawford Crossley Group
      Upcoming Concert!

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2023, 7:00 PM

150 Orchard Avenue, Penticton

The Crawford/Crossley quartet is back and we're trying something new — we've always loved the acoustics at St. Savior's in Penticton and we've got the opportunity to perform in this wonderful setting. We're titling this show, "Stories, Lies, and All That Jazz ~ Volume 2" and we're featuring some brand new tunes, brought to life by Yanti. And we've added a couple of fun twists to the mix that we think you will enjoy!   

Tickets are available online by clicking the link below! Space is limited, so be sure to book early :)

Check out our second CD of original vocal jazz tunes "Right Where We Belong"

Really excited about our second CD - seven more originals from Crawford and Crossley.  

The album is available on iTunes, Google Play and all the usual streaming services.

The Crawford Crossley Group

The Crossley Crawford Group has been together since 2015, performing to sold out shows at "Jazz at Zias," Penticton's Dream Cafe, the Vernon Jazz Club, and the Ryga Arts Centre. They have recorded two CD's of original jazz and vocal jazz tunes. Their shows are a mix of familiar jazz standards with a twist, as well as originals with a traditional swing flair.

Larry Crawford's career spans decades and includes playing on the original Sesame Street, touring with Liberace, Sammy Davis Jr. and Harry Belafonte, and five years touring with the NORAD bands. In addition to playing clarinet, tenor and soprano saxes and flute, this Okanagan icon is a prolific composer and arranger.

Allan Crossley has been a mainstay at Zias since 2015, playing solo piano over three hundred times. In addition to playing keys, he is the lyricist for Larry's compositions. He is hard at work on a show called "Stories, Lies, and All That Jazz."  

Yanti's vocals are always a delight. Whether soloing with her ukulele or singing with a band, she draws audiences in with her enthusiasm and passion. She brings the Crawford/Crossley compositions to life!

Rounding out the group are Stefan Bienz, a bass player in high demand, who plays with numerous local groups and musical productions; Scott Gamble, one of the finest drummers in B.C., whose musical playing and soloing are remarkable. Joining the group recently is Stan Sabourin on saxophone, a seasoned performer who plays with many different groups.

The video was filmed in Aug, 2017 for Shaw Cable's "The Seen"


~ I play solo piano at Zias most weekends when I'm in town - usually Friday and Saturday, but not always.  The best way to find out is to call Zias at 250-494-1105 and ask! We usually set the schedule the week before. Friday and Sat are 6:00-9:00 and Sunday is 5:30-8:30.

NEW Crawford and Crossley CD!
