Celebrating its 30th anniversary this summer, the TD Toronto Jazz Festival announces its lineup as it runs from June 24 – July 3, 2016 featuring a diverse range of musicians including heavyweights, rising stars and established artists such as:
Gregory Porter • Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings • Oliver Jones Trio • Joe Jackson
Robert Glasper Experiment • Avishai Cohen Trio • Grace Potter • Allen Stone
Michael Franti • Lee Fields • Eagle Rock Gospel Singers • Bill Charlap Trio
Fanfare Ciocarlia • The Hot Sardines • Robi Botos • David Braid
Broadsway • Heather Bambrick • Laili Biali • Hilario Duran
Lemon Bucket Orkestra • Alex Pangman • Phil Dwyer
Melissa Stylianou • John Alcorn
and many more!
Straight-up, foot-stomping jazz steeped in the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Fats Waller used to make, The Hot Sardines can only be described as born in the 1920s but raised in the ‘00s, reflecting a philosophy that hot jazz, Dixieland and Tin Pan Alley tunes are all just pop music.
Catch them Saturday July 2, 2016 at the Horseshoe Tavern at 10 p.m.
