TD Niagara Jazz Festival

 

The TD Niagara Jazz Festival is a new and exciting jazz festival dedicated to celebrating the art form of jazz in the Niagara Region. The festival inspires, educates and develops future jazz audiences for generations to come while combining live jazz with a Niagara experience – food, wine, culture and natural wonders. The not-for-profit three day festival takes place throughout the Niagara Region and 'kicks off' at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre on Friday, July 27th, 2018...with guess-who?  The SwingShift Big Band!

Our good friend Oliver Vadas has developed a brilliant concert series at the Bronte Harbour Banquet Centre - Compass Restaurant in Oakville, Ontario. We opened the 2018 series on March 17th - with our "Blue Eyes meets Basie" show featuring Cal Dodd.  We hope you enjoyed it!  If you missed it, watch for more West End Shows coming up.
