Maiko Watson, Rhythm Express, and The Heavyweights Brass Band on a Christmas song, whoa!!! We'll all be performing this live on CBC radio 'Here and Now' at about 5pm and CBC Toronto News at 6pm in support of local food banks. You can even come in person. Admission is free but cash and food donations are welcome. Last year, CBC Toronto raised more than $600,000 and collected 40,000 pounds of food with over 10,000 people attending throughout the day. The event features LIVE radio and television broadcasts, performances by our city's best local musicians, meet and greets with CBC local and network stars, a one-of-a-kind silent auction and more.
What a week it's been! All week rehearsing and performing the Soul Pepper production The Big Easy. It's been an amazing experience! Everyone in this show is so talented and the material is just beautiful.
A little shot of the Heavyweights horns + Tom Allen in rehearsal.
Then it was The Ken McDonald Quartet's CD release at the Rex on Sunday night!
But it doesn't end there. Tuesday, and every Tuesday in April, it's back at the Rex with The Carissa Neufeld Quartet from 6:30 - 8:30pm, another Soul Pepper The Big Easy show on Wednesday then off to Kitchener to play the Boathouse with Big Rude Jake Friday night! When it rains it pours and who doesn't love the rain!
