WJO Presents: Bourbon Street Parade w/ trombonists Chris Butcher + Al Kay at WAG

  • WAG 300 Memorial Boulevard Winnipeg Canada (map)

2 SHOWS: 2:00pm & 7:30pm

Within the confines of Congo Square, on the outskirts of the French
Quarter, jazz was born. A celebration of music, and a melting pot of
cultural influence, jazz soon spread throughout Crescent City. Percussive counter-melodies, raucous glissandi, and joyous growls from a tailgate-trombone were often the harbinger of an incoming parade. And in the bayou, parades are plentiful! Trombonist and Winnipeg expatriate Chris Butcher and trombonist Al Kay from Humber College in Toronto join the WJO for our season opener. Ticket info here.
