Sue Newman brings her high-energy show to the Crofton hotel Pub for a show on Sunday, Oct. 2.

The group, who all hail from Saltspring Island, will explore jazz standards, Broadway favorites and other selections.

Newman handles musical theatre, jazz, blues, rock and other genres with ease, said Pat Selman, producer for the Sunday jazz series at the Crofton Hotel Pub. “I’ve seen her perform a few times and she puts on a fantastic show,” Selman said. “Sue has an amazing voice and a great stage presence.”
