upcoming events

Feb 17, Sat, 2018
| 8 PM - 11 PM |
This contemplative and often thrilling quartet's explorations of modern, original repertoire is led by a fast-rising star in Toronto's jazz piano community, 25 year old NICK MACLEAN. Formed in 2016, Maclean's foursome delivers jazz between the two poles of thoughtful introspection and powerhouse conveyance, taking influences from Herbie Hancock's primordial 1960's Blue Note era recordings, while paying tribute to some of the greatest improvisers in jazz history. Repeatedly regarded as a modern take on the ferocious and hard-swinging post-bop era, the group is frequently lauded for the strength of their collective improvisatory vision and features one of Canada's most provocative improvising trumpet-playing iconoclasts Brownman Ali, standing shoulder to shoulder with Maclean & two of Toronto's top-tier rhythm section 20-somethings: Jesse Dietschi on bass and Tyler Goertzen on drums. The synergy of the 4 is always palpable in concert.

Sweet Alps
Sweet Alps is a four person outfit from Ottawa Ontario featuring Nicholas O'Gorman, whose catchy guitar hooks and lead vocals are the foundation of the band, Colleen McKeracher, bassist extraordinaire, Jamie Bogue, guitarist with the most phenomenal licks and Sean Paterson whose whose drum rhythms keep the whole band ticking. Colleen met Nick in university and formed a punk band known as Boxhands. After disbanding in 2010, Nick and Colleen began to move away from the raw and aggressive music of punk, and formed Sweet Alps. Joining forces with Jamie and Sean, whose band Bad Doctor often played Boxhands, Sweet Alps had found their sound, with influences from folk, pop, ska, punk and classic rock. This Indie Rock band will be taking over the Ottawa scene with both catchy choruses and soulful ballads.
Crooked Pines
Crooked Pine is a band that keeps the Blue Ridge mountain heritage music vibrant in the modern world. They play dances, concerts, weddings, festivals and gatherings of all kinds. You will hear fiddle tunes, songs from the Americana world, original compositions and some standards that bring back fond memories. Four musicians, four voices, and a blend only gained from years of gigs and recording. Their love of the mountains and of playing music with each other is passed to the audience with every note they play. Crooked Pine is a local favorite and made up of Frank McConnell, Marion Boatwright, Craig Bannerman, and Troy Harrison.
