The Brandon Jazz Festival is a showcase of young up-and-coming jazz musicians.
Every year, talented musicians come to the Brandon Jazz Festival to perform and receive education from veteran jazz musicians from all over the world. Performing alongside some of the world’s best-known jazz acts, you won’t want to miss the city’s coolest music festival.
Made up of nine performers who represent a cross-section of the Winnipeg music and theatre community, Those Guys have built a reputation for dynamic, feel-good performances since 2009. Their repertoire, which ranges from The Nylons to Justin Timberlake (and everything in between), features complex (often original) musical arrangements performed without a single instrument. In 2012, Those Guys released their first studio recording, That Album. Their follow-up EP, LIVE!, was released in December 2014, followed by a holiday album, This Christmas, in 2015.
“The guys take on one of my all time favourite artists here. Great job! …they really got it goin’ on and I’m so proud of you all!” – Jerry Lawson (of The Persuasions and Jerry Lawson & the Talk of the Town)
“To see ‘Those Guys’ live is to love them. They’re brilliant. I had no idea I was into a cappella until they came along… [Those Guys] make people happy.” – Ace Burpee, host of 103.1
