The Ted Quinlan Opening Band Series

December 8, 2013 @ 5:30 am – December 29, 2013 @ 10:45 am
Jazz Room

We were very fortunate to have had Mike Downes curate our November opening band series, and we (and you!) lucked out again for December: we are very pleased to present the Ted Quinlan Opening Band Series, featuring up-and-coming artists from Toronto to accompany your dinner hour, at no additional cost to the main show.  If our November series is anything to go by, these folks are opening bands in name only, and will no doubt be headlining their own shows very soon.  Come early on these days and have a listen to the next generation of performers!

A special thank-you to Ted Quinlan for curating this series, and to Mike Downes for our fantastic November series!  Click below for more info on each group, as well as the headliner for that evening.

Dec 7th: Emily Steinwall Trio: Emily Steinwall on tenor sax, Ewen Farncombe on piano and Hayden Farrar on bass.  Opening for Eliana Cuevas.

Dec 14th: Sam Dickinson Trio: Sam Dickinson on guitar, Julian Anderson-Bowes on bass and Derek Gray on drums.  Opening for Ted Quinlan.

Dec 28th: John Kennelly Duo: John Kennelly on guitar and Hayden Farrar on bass.  Opening for Conor Gains.

Come out and discover the future of Canadian jazz!
