CAN $19 – CAN $27
We’re very excited to have an icon of the Canadian jazz scene back on our platform with a new group of friends. Tenor saxophonist Bob Brough will perform with Dave Field and Tom Forsyth and they’ll each perform from their homes in Toronto. During the pandemic, this trio of fabulous musicians have been jamming online regularly and they’ve developed a great rapport and a unique repertoire of some of their favourite tunes. For this show they’ll be playing a selection of eclectic jazz tunes from a variety of composers such as Bill Evans, Wayne Shorter, and Chick Corea; as well as some familiar standards from Cole Porter and Henry Mancini. There will also be moments of free improv between some of the selections.

Stuck at home and wishing you could be out together with friends? Purchase a BRING A FRIEND ticket and sit together in our virtual venue at your own table where you can chat while watching the show together. Or watch separately on YouTube. Either way, after the show, come into the virtual venue to meet the musicians in one of our many virtual bars.
