A magical night of classic New Orleans jazz, with renowned New Orleans jazz musicians Gregg Stafford (trumpet) and Detroit Brooks (guitar)


An important annual jazz event for Toronto fans, this evening will pay tribute to the unique musical and cultural heritage that is New Orleans, and bring a little New Orleans sizzle to Toronto in a cold month.


Gregg Stafford is a trumpet player who rose up through the ranks of New Orleans traditional brass bands to front his own band, The Jazz Hounds. A New Orleans school teacher by day, Gregg has been a regular in the Preservation Hall house band, and continues to be featured annually at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and other New Orleans jazz landmarks.


Detroit Brooks, famed session and touring guitarist of the New Orleans music scene, has the most recognizable face in that city. Music critics, aficiodados, and novices attest to his smooth yet infectious stroke based in solid fundamentals. Often admired by guitarists world-wide, Brooks’ laid-back demeanor masks one of the most heralded and sought-after performers, songwriters, and session men of our time.
