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

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!
