OUTDOOR CONCERT: Lenny Graf & His Platinum Orchestra (Mel Lastman Square $2)

Enjoy a big band concert under the stars! Join us for a performance of Lenny Graf and His Platinum Orchestra at Mel Lastman Square in North York.

Big band is one of Belinda's favourite types of music. The summer big band concerts at Mel Lastman Square are usually excellent. You can dance to the music with or without a partner!

 

THE CONCERT

This 10-piece big band features upbeat 1920s, 1930s and 1940s dixieland, easy jazz and big band. Enjoy the music of heroes such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Benny Goodman. Band leader Lenny Graf studied jazz saxophone and classical flute at York University and is winner of the much coveted Grennick Award, among others. More information.

    A big thank you to Jeffrey for doing a great job hosting this event. I had a wonderful time. It was so much fun dancing with Don, Evelyne, Jeffrey, Jennifer, Mirella, Roz and Vlad. I think we've created a whole new style of social dancing by dancing altogether as a group!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
