Smooth Jazz is a Smooth Move in 2018

Smooth Jazz is a Smooth Move in 2018

On Monday, February 12, kick off your Valentine’s Day celebrations a bit early by bringing your date (or BFF, or mom, or fly solo!) to Brantford Downtown Jazz’s presentation of the John MacLeod Sextet. This intimate performance is in the Main Lobby of the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts (88 Dalhousie St., Brantford). Doors open at 7:15pm, so grab a drink at the bar, and settle in for the 8pm show.

John MacLeod has led a distinguished career spanning 40 years on the Canadian music scene. In 1983 he had his first major national and international exposure as a soloist with Rob McConnell and the Boss Brass. Over his career, he has worked with Toronto’s most elite musicians and organizations, and has performed on over fifty albums and CD recordings, including Grammy and Juno Award winning records!

John also composes and arranges his own music, which can be found in international repertoires. He has received funding from federal and provincial arts funding bodies, and has received numerous commissions for school groups, big bands, and symphony orchestras.

Tickets for the John MacLeod Sextet can be purchased at the Sanderson Centre Box Office, over the phone, or online by clicking here. Tickets are $30.

If you can’t make it to the February show, Brantford Downtown Jazz has two more concerts coming up this season at the Sanderson Centre: Juno Award winner Don Thompson Trio on April 16, 2018 at 8pm; and a dramatically choreographed show by Countermeasure on June 4, 2018 at 8pm.
