Bio: The Beaches International Jazz Festival is celebrating it's 28th year, and we want you to come and celebrate with us! Be part of Toronto’s biggest jazz music celebration and street party of the year July 2 -24, 2016 …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.
