Heavyweights Brass Band
Young Toronto collective The Heavyweights Brass Band are emerging as one of the most exciting new acts on the Canadian jazz scene, described by JAZZFM.91s Jaymz Bee as a breath of fresh air, destined for big things any minute now. Whether receiving props from The Roots on Twitter, jamming with puppets on CBC Kids Mamma Yamma, recording with jazz legend Jane Bunnett or being championed by influential DJ and tastemaker Gilles Peterson, The Heavyweights Brass Band pack a one-two punch of crossover appeal and respect from musics elite.
The Ivory Thieves
The Ivory Thieves are brand new to the Toronto music scene, as they were formed a little over a month ago. The group of four David Schwartz, Sam Kerzner, Judah Batist and Avery Seligman offer a unique sound comprised of funky bluesy Progressive Rock .Contrary to popular belief, the Ivory Thieves do not condone the poaching of elephants for their tusks. In fact, quite the opposite is true, as a portion of our proceeds go directly to the poaching of elephant poachers.
