Players from Buffalo?
Sure.
From Ottawa?
Often.
Rochester NY?
Not a problem.

In addition to the local talent that Brian Dinsdale recruits for his ever-changing band, Dinny & the All Stars, it is not uncommon to enjoy the likes of Peter Turner/trombone/Ottawa or Dan McCue/banjo/Buffalo or Lynn Eberhardt/bass/Rochester, as was the case on Sunday April 07, making for an early evening of top-notch jazz. Great hear Lynn's tuba. 
The writer is a big fan of Dinny's All Stars - one of Toronto's finest Dixieland jazz bands - and their alternate Sundays residency at the Queen Victoria pub is a great way to round off a weekend of jazz.

Who: Dinny & the All Stars  A six-piece Dixieland band, with frequent quests and sit-ins, in a party atmosphere.
Where: Queen Victoria pub, 2240 Midland Avenue, Scarborough (just s. of the 401).
When: Alternate Sundays (approx.), 5 to 8 pm. Next gig: April 28.
Info: Dorine Dinsdale at [email protected]

Missing the Excelsior Jazz Band on Sundays? Think Dinny's All Stars.
