Bio: The Beaches Jazz Festival 2014 is Toronto's signature Jazz event attracting millions of fans to the Beach Area. July 18th - July 27th 2012 Welcome to Season 26 …of big music, big crowds and big smiles! We start each year with a blank slate, a wish list, and this season, with over two hundred and fifty applications submitted, we never have enough performance spots to address the many fine musicians looking to sound off. As we review each application, we keep in mind that the BIJF is an outdoor event where bands must reach beyond the stage and connect with our diverse audience, their expectations and desires. This is why we mix it up. A lot of jazz, a bit of blues, funk, Caribbean, and other sounds that all meld and intertwine, leaving the listener with a sense that they’ve experienced a unique blend of sounds that defines this Festival.
