Christmas Single Release Show!

Christmas Single Release Poster_ONLINE.jpg

     We’re releasing our brand new Holiday Season single “Christmas Tune” at Toronto’s May Cafe on Sun-Dec-11, 8pm! Far from being a typical Holiday Season release, “Christmas tune” is a commentary on some of the defining characteristics of modern commercial Christmas music, much of which are written in major keys, and drenched in so much saccharin that it red-lines the “happy-happy” meter. Instead, our bandleader Nick Maclean’s composition presents an antithesis to that Holiday writing approach — an eclectic and multifaceted exploration of the full spectrum of human emotion. This performance will feature label exec and “Canada’s preeminent jazz trumpet player” (NYC Village Voice) Brownman Ali, and will include a cross-section of the entire “The Long Slog” recording for those that missed the Oct CD Release making this a night of funkified electric-jazz audiences will not want to miss!

Jazz Festival 2016 Poster.jpg

Big show coming up! On June 28th we’re playing at Mây as part of the Toronto Jazz Festival and to sweeten the deal, our longtime producer and trumpet player extraordinaire Brownman Ali will be our special guest!

SNAGGLE with special guest Brownman Ali
876 Dundas St West,
Show starts at 8:00pm
$10

On June 28th Snaggle’s brash sound will once again be joined by acclaimed trumpet player Brownman Ali. Snaggle is a 6 piece electric-jazz ensemble that takes influences from Snarky Puppy, Miles Davis and everything in between. This ensemble juxtaposes gentle melodies with hard funk and ties it all together with some creative and exciting improvisation. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Brown (his full bio’s below) — he is an incredibly accomplished trumpet player, musician & composer and when he’s not touring the world with the titans of the music industry (Jay-z, Paul Simon, Dave Matthews Band to name only a few) he’s got some killer projects on the go including our favorite – the BROWNMAN ELECTRYC TRIO. So make sure you don’t miss it, 8:00pm, $10 cover!
