The Twilight Jazz SEries is turning 6 and we are having a party!
Come and join us for an opening jazz set with the Shea D Duo and then get funky with LMT CONNECTION.
LMT CONNECTION are true masters of their craft. They've been together for 27 years, recorded six albums, played over 6000 shows including 12 tours of Europe and five tours of China. When at home in Canada they've remarkably held an 19 year residency at the legendary Orbit Room in Toronto on Wednesday nights.
Their repertoire is both familiar and refreshing. Like an arrow pointing in two directions, LMT Connection evoke the Motown era while breaking new ground in contemporary music. And nowhere is this more evident than in their live performance....
Leroy Emmanuel, who recently celebrated his 71st birthday, moves like a man half his age. As a rhythm section, Mark Rogers and John Irvine attack their instruments with such ferocity, it’s hard to believe you’re listening to a three-piece band. Orchestra is more like it.
Even the stuffiest wallflowers can’t resist the groove. Together they travel beyond mere nostalgia or entertainment into a dimension that transcends age, time or location. But words are only words. There is no substitute for the real experience; an experience that robs words of their meaning. To speak about LMT CONNECTION in the third person is nothing like being there in person. So we’ll let you decide!
Tickets: $10 in advance / $15 at the door
