Jazz is springing up all over
This just in - a gig with my friend Ailsa McCreary - fabulous singer and the York Jazz Ensemble at Grace Church on the Hill, 300 Lonsdale Road, Friday April 30th at 7:30. Gershwin at Grace - note the Art Deco font... it's a fundraiser and the ticket prices are $15 for adults, $10/student and senior. She will also be joined by Bev Janhke and Francesca Groves as guest vocalists.

In other news Darlene Stimson is the opening act for "Girls Night Out" this coming Wednesday at Chalkers - which gives me good reason to haul myself up there and cover the weekly event....
Also on Thursday - the Indo Jazz Festival at Lula Lounge featuring Monsoon - starting at 9:30. Monsoon contains a number of "Jazzology" and Humber grads including Todd Pentney, Justin Gray, Andrew Kay and Adam Teixeira..hmmm I think that's most of the band actually.
More to come
