Jazz Up Your Canada Day

In these days of economic hardship, everyone is all about the "staycation" rather than the vacation and what with our 1-day midweek holiday next week, even those who have cottages in Muskoka will most likely be staying close to home.

What to do in (or near) our hood on July 1st? If you're around the neighbourhood on your own staycation, then you certainly can't miss the opening act of Jazz In The Park - a new weekly jazz fest coming to the Danforth.

Organized by the Danforth Mosaic BIA (yay, BIA!), Jazz In The Park will happen every Wednesday from 5pm until 8pm at the Coxwell Parkette (the park next to the Green P lot on the south side of Danforth).

Opening the series on July 1 is the JUNO nominated group Autorickshaw, an uber-popular jazz quartet that blends jazz, funk and world music. I would say this is going to be a highlight of the season, so you shouldn't miss it. There are 9 other weeks of great musicians lined up but I won't list them all!
