Lust Life Jazz Band

Jazz from Victoria BC


Lust Life Jazz Band

since circa 1994
Featured musicians in The Victoria International JazzFest and many other events, Lust Life has been a staple of the Victoria & Island music scene for many years. Frequently guest soloists join the band to offer their opinions in the language of jazz.

The repertoire stems from the love of the jazz song form, the great American songbook and takes inspiration from jump jazz, blues, bebop, soul, funk and swing. The stylings of Lust Life defy classical description.
