Night one at the hallowed hall known as The Rex. What a band! Bassist Pat Collins, pianist Mark Eisenmann and drummer Joel Haynes. A guy could not ask for a better trio of musicians. Absolutely smoking! The Rex was pretty full but being at one of the busiest intersections in Canada its not wonder its always busy. It was a bit noisy but it didn’t bother me too much. I was flattered, not to mention scared shitless that a bunch of musicians showed up! Guitartist Nathan Hiltz, saxophonists Chris Gale, Kelly Jefferson and Jeff King, trombonist William Carn, vocalists Maureen Kennedy and Fern Lindzon and a few others. WOW! I mean Gale, King and Jefferson are three of Toronto’s if not Canada’s finest saxophonists. That’s gotta make a guy a bit nervous! The support was appreciated and it was great to have friends and family present. I will post some pictures tomorrow night after the show!
