2015 Jazzfest Regina Bushwakker Performance - The Heavyweights Brass Band from Toronto
June 18, 8:00 PM, Bushwakker
The biggest night of the year for live jazz at The Bushwakker! Brass band music is gaining street cred with six raucous musicians from Toronto. The Heavyweights Brass Band deftly mixes the diverse flavors of jazz, pop, funk, world beat and more into an irresistible, multicultural musical feast. This accomplished quintet injects every tune with an infectious sense of fun, excitement, and impeccable musicianship. An original, modern concept utilizing a classic instrumental line-up. The band performs a mash-up of originals, classic New Orleans brass band repertoire and contemporary pop hits that share a consistent thread of quality, humour, virtuosity and fantastic collective improvisation. This is one of the coolest ideas for a band that we have heard in a long time. The band has a musical and personable appeal that transcends generations and genres. They have wowed crowds that ranged from university kids to retirees with their fresh and energetic approach to the genre. There's an equal attention to musicianship and entertainment that results in their winning formula. This is take-no-prisoners funky groove music at its best with plenty to keep the ears happy while the butt shakes! Rush seating tickets are $15 and available at the Bushwakker and Bach & Beyond. 7:00 PM.
