Join us for a weekend of great music and dancing.

Marsh Street Centre, 187 Marsh St., Clarksburg
presented by Thornbury Jazzworks
Noodle Factory Jazz Project
The Noodle Factory Jazz Project began in 2007 with the aim of providing a creative outlet for some of the best jazz musicians in the Grey Bruce Area. The band plays all original arrangements and compositions written by its members. Band leader Ian Burbidge does the lion's share of the writing but the band also features the work of Don Buchanan, Wayne McGrath and Cam Porter. In both our writing and playing we strive to stretch the boundaries of what a jazz band can be without getting so esoteric as to lose our audience.

The 10-piece format gives us the option of
being sometimes a large jazz combo and
sometimes a compact big band. With
influences including Duke Ellington,
Charles Mingus, The Boss Brass, Oscar
Peterson, Blood Sweat and Tears and
Tower of Power, Noodle Factory has a
little something for everyone.

TICKETS $25.00
Beaver Valley Community Centre, 58 Alfred St, Thornbury

Georgian Sound Big Band
The Georgian Sound Big Band's mission is to provide musicians with the opportunity to share their love of music, to perform events for the benefit and enjoyment of our community, and to encourage young musicians to continue their interest in music and performance. The Georgian Sound Big Band was formed in 1988 by Bob Cringan. This enthusiastic band presents a wide variety  of danceable music including waltz, tango, and Latin rhythms using many of Bob's fine arrangements. The Band now swings to favourites from the big band era  to the present decade, much to the delight of an expanding audience.

TICKETS $25.00

One of the most exciting bands around, the Toronto All-Star Big Band revives the spirit style and sound of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s – that golden age of the big bands. Armed with brilliant programming, choreography and engaging cultural nostalgia, this vibrant cast of awesome young talent has earned its position at the top of list of presenters throughout Ontario and in the USA. Theatrical engagements are far reaching, and recent gigs have included the Glenn Miller festival in Clarinda Iowa, the Villages and the Snowbird Extravaganza in Florida, the Muskoka Lakes Music Festival, Beaches International Jazz Festival, Art Park in Lewiston N.Y. and Toronto’s famed Palais Royale, Casa Loma and the Old Mill.
At the heart of the musical matter, the TABB
provides one of the most intense and
stimulating youth music programs in Canada.
Behind their extraordinary entertainment,
they engage cream of the crop young musicians
from across the  GTA in a rigorous regime of
rehearsals, workshops and fantastic
skill-building performance experiences with
