Hello everyone out there in radio land!
We have some exciting news from the Street Team – keep a look out for us throughout the summer as we will be posting about exciting concerts, festivals and events happening all over!
First up – a couple of our Street Team members will be attending the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival happening this weekend! This year marks the 10th anniversary of the annual festival, each year with the mission of promoting the appreciation of jazz and blues. The festival commences on Thursday night and runs until Sunday with an incredible line up of musicians from Canada, the US and Europe. They provide a variety of music taste from Chicago blues to big band jazz, Cuban fused beats, community bands, acoustic blues and sophisticated jazz. Featuring some Juno award winning artists, the festival is guaranteed to be a great time. Some of the artists of this years line up include:
– Juno nominated singer/song writer Wendy Lands
– Larry Kurtz & The Lawbreakers
– Little G Weevil
– “America’s Hottest Accordion” winner Dwayne Dopsie & The Zydeco Hellraisers
– Orangeville’s very own Ryan Grist
– One of the hottest guitar players in the world, David Wilcox
– And many more!
The festival includes workshops, a Blues Cruise on Friday night with over 250 classic cars, as well as vendors and a Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning. This free festival is one of a kind! Be sure to grab the family and head down to Orangeville to enjoy an amazing weekend packed full of incredible music.
