Guelph Jazz Festival’s affilate group Jazz Around Town as well as yours truly present a night of jazz as part of the Fest this year.
Glenn Buhr & The Button Factory Band:
Glenn Buhr’s songs and performances are an eclectic and imaginative mix of vintage blues/roots music, lyrical songs, and sound art. The Button Factory Band – the current incarnation of his active imagination – is a 4-piece roots/art-rock band, made up of some of the finest creative musicians in southwestern Ontario. The band is the vehicle for Buhr’s recent music: a collection of original songs full of vivid imagery and inventive sound painting.
All of the band members are composers, excellent singers and virtuoso instrumentalists who are dedicated to innovative music. The band’s live concerts are exciting, highly energized, and often wildly unpredictable, mixing Buhr’s precisely arranged songs with pure improvisation.
Hot Jaws Quartet:
A Guelph Jazz Quartet that’s under the direction of Brent Rowan.
