Music by The Problem Jazz Band | 3:00 – 5:00 PM
Enjoy the enchanting sounds of the holiday season as The Problem Jazz Band serenades you with their musical talents. The soothing melodies will create a harmonious backdrop for your shopping experience.

Founded by local real estate agent, sax player, and Berklee College of Music graduate Frank Youngblood, as well as Bellingham trombonist and performer Samuel Harris, The Problem was formed as an official collaboration between some of the youngest freelance jazz musicians in Bellingham! The Problem is meant to act as an outlet for the creativity, musicianship, and spirit of our members and fans alike. We want to spread Bellingham‘s hippest notes across the Pacific Northwest, all while growing the local scene for young musicians back at home!

The Problem is Bellingham’s hippest jazz/funk/soul/pop group. Composed of some of Bellingham’s youngest professional jazz musicians ranging from 19-25 years of age, we have no issue playing our own take on hundreds of jazz tunes and originals – as well as pop, funk, and soul tunes ranging decades!
