This event happens on Aug 2, 2012.
Based on the idea of supporting local resources, the Twenty Kilometer Jazz Diet consists of musicians who all reside in the Guelph area. On any given Thursday at manhattans pizza bistro.music clubin Guelph, ON, you could catch any combination of musicians. You never know who will drop in to jam!
All the members of the group are professional musicians who make their living playing and teaching jazz music. Many of them have toured the world playing various music festivals in England, Australia, across the US and Canada. All have attended, graduated or taught at jazz programs in York University, McGill, Humber, Mohawk and University of Toronto.
“Everyone is local somewhere.” Mulgrew Miller.
