2022 Twilight Jazz Series: St. Catharines Edition

Join us the second Sunday of every month from January to May 2022 for our monthly presentations of the Twilight Jazz Series: St. Catharines Edition!

The Shea D Duo (Peter Shea + Juliet Dunn – co-creators of the TD Niagara Jazz Festival) introduced the Twilight Jazz Series to the Niagara Scene in October of 2011. The series features a different jazz ensemble the first Sunday of every month from November to June. The series traditionally took place at Mahtay Café and Lounge, but in 2020 COVID-19 forced the Festival to take its shows online. Our 2022 Series celebrates our return to in-person shows with the return to Mahtay!

Each show takes place from 6pm – 9pm and focuses on Niagara musicians as well as featured musicians from Hamilton and Toronto.

Some of the past Twilight Jazz performers include: John SherwoodJames BryanBarbra LicaGraham LearReg SchwagerAshley St. Pierre, Mike Murley, Jim Casson, Heilig Manoeuvre, Kevin Breit, Poco Latino, Kevin Turcotte, Rodger Niznik, Ori DaganJohn Neudorf and many more.

With the TD Niagara Jazz Festival and the ongoing Twilight Jazz Series Juliet Dunn and Peter Shea are thrilled to be able to bring live jazz to the Niagara music scene year-round.
