Red Hot Jazz and Cool Blues
NEW START TIME: 6:30 p.m.
An RBG tradition continues with another stunning lineup of entertainment returning to the Hendrie Park stage. Enjoy a cold drink and BBQ and get set for some award-winning jazz and blues musicians in our lovely garden setting.
Join us this week for some blues with Andria Simone:
“Singer-songwriter Andria Simone was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Her style can be described as “soul-flavoured”, but she is a lover of many genres.”
Andria Simone’s eclectic taste in music can be partly attributed to the various places she has lived, including Manchester, England and Lviv, Ukraine. She is not a conventional 12-bar blues singer, but she can certainly excel in that format. Since 2012, Andria has performed extensively with her ace young group whom she affectionately dubs “Those Guys”. They comprise bassist Mark Wilson, guitarist Dave Kirby, saxophonist Brian Dhari, and drummer George Nikolov. Word of Andria Simone and Those Guys as a great live act has spread like wildfire on the Toronto scene, leading to regular sold-out gigs at such major live music venues as Hugh’s Room, Drake Underground, 3030 and Mod Club.
