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

Her band, Sue and the Jazzmen,  consists of guitarist Peter Taschuk, bassist Ian Van Wyck and drummer Laurent Boucher. They will be joined by Jock Budelman on saxophone and flute.

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.”
