The Details

This Monday, Dec. 13th, Jaymz Bee will be hosting the Big Band Benefit for the Daily Bread Food Bank at the Elgin & Winter Garden Theatre (here in Toronto, across from the Eaton Centre). Guests include Moxy Fruvous, John Southworth, Damnhait Doyle, The Beehive Singers, and Big Rude Jake. Tickets are $25, with all (or, most?) proceeds going to the Food Bank; they're available through Ticketmaster at 870-8000.

This will certainly be the most exciting multi-artist concert i'll have seen all year... I don't think I've seen Damnhait since she opened for BNL three years ago, and both John Southworth & Big Rude Jake emigrated to NYC quite some time ago, I believe...

The (unfortunately-named) Beehive Singers are a fabulous local 2-girls/2-guys vocal-quartet who've been singing backup to Jaymz Bee for a few years, and finally released their self-titled debut on Leisure Lab records; a great mix of original ditties & covers of some old jazz/tin-pan-alley style standards. Highly recommended.
