    Brenda Lewis Uptown W'loo Jazz Festival Jazz Week - Opening Concert!

    Monday, July 17 2017, 12:15pm - 1:15pm
    The 25th Uptown Waterloo Jazz Festival kicks off their Jazz Week celebrations with a concert featuring The Brenda Lewis (vocals) & John Zadro (piano) Jazz Duo, immediately following the Thanks Giving address given by Tehakanere of the Mohawk Nation, and, the Wolf Clan Family (to take place at noon). Of her critically-acclaimed recent jazz CD “Far & Near”, reviewer Lesley Mitchell-Clarke (The WholeNote) writes: “Her adept jazz sensibility (as well as her variegated alto voice) is beautifully displayed; her consummate vocal skill shines throughout.” For 25 years versatile Guelph-based vocalist Brenda Lewis has been performing professionally, predominately as a jazz vocalist – with some of Canada’s finest jazz musicians as her main music partners: guitarists Margaret Stowe and Tony Quarrington, pianist John Zadro and bassists Rosemary Galloway and Jeff Bird – and KW’s own New Vibes Jazz Quintet. A popular singer regionally, she was featured most recently in the sold-out two night run of “The Breithaupt Brothers Come Home to Kitchener” Concerts in The Registry Theatre’s jazz series, The Jazz Room’s winter series (Waterloo), Niagara Jazz Festival’s Twilight Jazz Series and over the years at the Arkell Schoolhouse along with many more series and special events. Her voice is regularly heard across Ontario on CBC Radio, Jazz-FM and in Toronto’s Jazz Bistro, The Old Mill and 120 Diner as well as at the McMichael Art Gallery, Brookside Concerts (Midland Cultural Centre) – and festivals including 1000 Islands Blues & Jazz Festival, Merrickville’s Jazz Fest, Uptown Waterloo Jazz Festival, and, Guelph Jazz Festival. FREE EVENT! Come over & join us at Uptown Waterloo's main square on your lunch hour!
