This coming Saturday evening at 6pm, Diana Downtown proudly presents their annual Guelph Jazz Festival "Jazz Around Town" series Dinner Show with popular local jazz vocalist Brenda Lewis .
This past year saw this versatile singer featured in her “25 Years of Singing” Celebration in the Guelph Youth Music Centre’s Concert Series, The 2018 Uptown Waterloo Jazz Festival, and in The Registry Theatre’s Jazz Series (The Breithaupt Brothers Come Home to Kitchener).
She has recently been presented by The Jazz Room, The Old Mill’s Home Smith Bar, McMichael Gallery, The Jazz Bistro, Merrickville’s Jazz Fest, and 1000 Islands Jazz Festival, and, her latest CD, “Far & Near” has garnered rave reviews and airplay on JAZZ-FM, CBC and beyond.
“Her adept jazz sensibility is beautifully displayed; her consummate vocal skill shines throughout “ (LESLEY MITCHELL-CLARKE, THE WHOLENOTE)
“Between Lewis' always strong singing, expert choice of material, and a small group that delivers big, the thrill in this case comes entirely from the music." (MARK RHEAUME, CBC RADIO)
For her seventh jazz festival show at the Diana,
Lewis is joined by longtime music partner, gifted Toronto jazz guitarist, producer / engineer Margaret Stowe
and they are once again joined by Guelph’s own Cowboy Junkie / Tamarack-er Jeff Bird
on upright bass and harmonica.
