Some of the groups are well established with noteworthy reputations, others are now building their stellar careers, and still others are professional musicians who simply want to play with each other for the thrill of exploring new repertoire or revisiting old favourites. All the concerts are accessible, classical repertoire.

The concerts are casual, not at all stuffy and all are warmly welcomed. Thanks to the free-will donations and the support of patrons these concerts are free and always will be free.

Hogtown Brass Quintet is excited to kick off the #ClassyAF 2017 Season at The Dakota Tavern in downtown Toronto.

#ClassyAF is a new concert series bringing classical music out of the concert hall and into the bar. Because we like tacos. And drinks.

TD Toronto Jazz Festival with Dialectica Saxophone Quartet

TD Toronto Jazz Festival with Dialectica Saxophone Quartet

Hogtown Brass Quintet and Dialectica Saxophone Quartet push the boundaries of their traditional ensembles with an innovative and entertaining program in this free concert presented by TD Toronto Jazz Festival.

About Dialectica:
With equal parts jazz-trained and classically-trained saxophonists, Dialectica attempts to find an aesthetic truth through the discourse of these two musical points of view, akin to the Dialectic method of philosophy found in Plato’s Socratic Dialogues. Tackling philosophical inquiries even Socrates himself couldn’t foresee:
-Can a current Canadian identity be found where the lineages of European art music and North American art music meet?
-Can the saxophone occupy a space in the collective unconscious that lies beyond that of Careless Whisper and Baker Street?
-Can the world handle more than one female saxophonist in one place?

Hogtown Brass are so excited to get on stage at one of Toronto's most well-known jazz venues to open for two extraordinary musicians. 

Legendary sax-man Pee Wee Ellis and Canadian global-roots visionary Jason Wilson are once again teaming up for a special night at Hugh’s Room. Ellis was an essential part of James Brown’s band and later served as Van Morrison’s bandleader. Pee Wee co-wrote ‘Cold Sweat’ with Brown, as well as several other instrumental hits. Jason Wilson is a two-time Juno-Awards nominee who fuses reggae with jazz and folk. He has recorded with artists such as Dave Swarbrick, UB40, Jackie Mittoo and Ron Sexsmith. Together, Ellis and Wilson’s funky-reggae mix has charmed audiences across Canada, the UK and Jamaica.
