On a few very special occasions, Yanti has the opportunity to sing with the South Okanagan Big Band. Formed as a not-for-profit group in 2011 by Richard de Jonge and a small group of fellow music enthusiasts, the South Okanagan Big Band (SOBB) is still a fairly young band. What brings them together each week is the joy of playing those old swinging tunes of the 1930’s and 40’s made popular during the Big Band Era, plus some choice diverse tunes that have come along since! The band currently makes their home at the Martin Street Art & Music Gallery in Penticton BC, practicing there weekly and playing for events on a fairly regular basis.
