What are you doing this long weekend? I’m singing a jazz show with my Alleycats quintet at Burning Kiln Winery near Norfolk County/Turkey Point in Ontario & you’re all invited! Sunday May 22nd at Noon!
Here are some “didja’ know” factoids to pique your interest….
*Our Cornetist John Macleod is a JUNO winner and member of Boss Brass!
*Alleycats bassist Chris Banks once traveled to Dubai to play jazz (Burning Kiln is much easier to get to!)
*Jazz and Wine have a long history! There are dozens of wine and jazz festivals, but if the Sonoma Valley sounds a bit too far of a commute…. try Burning Kiln!
*Musicians have a long history with alcohol. Bing Crosby was notorious for missing gigs in his early career due to a predilection for the sauce.
*It’s going to be 22 degrees on Sunday!!!
*Copies of Alex’s JUNO nominated album “New” will be available for signings after the show.
*Alex is one of the only living artists to be published on 78rpm, 45rpm, 33rpm & digitally. She may even bring her vinyl to the show to sell!
* Alex may love depression era music, but she loves modern science more: She is a double lung transplant recipient. Did you know one donor can save up to 8 lives? Be a donor & hero, sign up to save lives www.beadonor.ca
*A very special guest vocalist joins the Alleycats for a warble during our first set on Sunday May 22…. who will it be?! you have to BE THERE TO FIND OUT!!!!!
*Address: Burning Kiln Winery, 1709 Front Rd, Saint Williams, ON N0E 1P0
