2018 – it’s been A BANNER YEAR for Halton JAZZ Singers TRIO! NO COMPLAINTS & LOADS OF GRATITUDE…
To Our Corporate Sponsors:
A HUGE Thank you to our sponsors for 2017-18:
Unquestionable fact: The projects that HJSTRIO took on in 2018: i) pro bono community shows in Oakville e.g., at Bronte Legion as the Opening Act for Paulie & the Goodfellas!
ii) HJS commissioned GARY MARTIN COMPOSING & ARRANGING – Thanks to corporate sponsorship funding, HJS had the funds to hire Gary to arrange 8 songs for vocal jazz trio & 9 piece little big band – WHOA! Now that’s a whack of dollars!
iii) Joint rehearsals & 2 ninety minute shows, “Harlem Hits & Southern Swing!” (Bronte Legion on July 8th & Burlington Central Park, July 18th) with the AMAZING SWINGLINE little big band & in particular the co-operation from manager Urmas Soomet!
iv) HJS now has access to 2 affordable, committed & competent sound technicians who know & care about getting OUR SOUND RIGHT! Ryan & Eric, two sound experts – these fellas deserve mentioning here – a) Ryan Miller (son of tenor, Jason Miller) has the qualifications, gear, & expert keen ear & familial ties too! Ryan has consistently delivered quality sound for HJS in some tight & challenging situations – Thank-you Ryan!
Eric Bower Audio Services… It’s so heartwarming to hear from an independent audio expert, “I really like your sound!” That’s what Eric tells us! Then is able to demonstrate it by his mastering of our sound output: Finally, we have found an independent community minded sound technician who thinks quality output ahead of ‘fees’ – ERIC WANTS & IS ABLE to match HJS in his own audio expertise delivery! Thank YOU Eric!
HJS’s Instrumental Combo IS IN DEMAND!
Need an instrumental combo – well, HJS HAS it’s own trio or quartet depending on YOUR budget – Brent (bass), Heiki or Rob (keyboard), Gary (sax/clarinet), Vince or James (drums) – these guys have gelled like jello! They are out & about on demand for cocktail hour & mix & mingle pre-dinner events…keep them in mind!
