Born and raised in New Orleans, Gregg Stafford is widely considered to be one of the finest trumpet players today in the traditional New Orleans style of jazz. Mentored from a young age by the late, great Danny Barker, Gregg rose up through the ranks of New Orleans traditional brass bands to front his own band, the Jazz Hounds, and to become an annual favourite at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. He has been a regular in the Preservation Hall house band, and continues to be featured at other New Orleans jazz landmarks. A grade-school school teacher by day, Gregg’s music is known to fans around the world.

For one night only, Gregg is backed by 6 wonderful musicians pulled from some of best of Toronto traditional jazz bands, including the Silverleaf Band, the Happy Pals, Freeway Dixieland, and the New Orleans All Stars.

Two full sets will be topped off with a Second Line parade in the best New Orleans style.

    I want to welcome the Toronto Music Lovers. This is going to be a very fun evening - great music, great people, maybe some dancing, definitely some parading. As they say "Laissez les bontemps roulez!"
