ABOUT the IJC

Island Jazz Collective features, left to right, Dr. Bob Wagner on keyboards, Dale Stirling on bass, Don Wodjenski on tenor and soprano saxophones, Ken Bloomquist on drums and Mark Strohschein on guitar. The IJC plays all forms of jazz from swing to latin to blues. We prefer lyrical, foot tapping, finger snapping music from the great american jazz songbook.

Island Jazz Collective was formed in late 2016 from members of DBJazz with the addition of Mark Strohschein. DBJazz has been playing the Whidbey Island area for years as a quartet. With the addition of Mark on guitar, the IJC is able to offer musical engagements with a number of combo sizes; duos, trios, quartets, or quintets.
