Tiny Islands is a children's show performing at Elementary schools throughout BC by day and your favourite neighbourhood spots by night. This horn heavy New Orleans inspired four piece is fronted by Nathan Barrett on trumpet and voice, and brother Tim Sars on baritone sax and voice. Backed by long standing friends Wynston Minckler on double bass and Ben Brown on drum kit, these four smashing musicians rock the dance floor. Their funky originals and traditional jazz dance tunes are a staple in the Vancouver music scene.
One night, after one of their many shows, a music agent approached the band and said, “What you do in bars would be perfect for kids!”. While a bit surprised by this exclamation, Tim listened and created the interactive show for kids: Jazzology. While Jazzology is more educational, Tim admits it’s not all that different from performing for adults. The four piece band has booked over 150 shows around BC, with tours stretching across this beautiful province.
