About Brent Setterington (EP, Keyboard, Bass, Backing Vocals)
Brent Setterington has played the local Niagara scene extensively debuting with the Jazz Combo he co-created with Peter Shea in their high school days. He has been gigging professionally ever since. As one of original keyboardists in Niagara’s beloved LMT CONNECTION, Brent cut his teeth on old jazz and funk soul records from the Motown era.
As co-writer, arranger, keyboardist, and musical director of the funk-soul outfit Jacksoul, Brent and Haydain Neale created a unique sound that landed them a major recording contract with BMG in 1995. Their sophomore album “Sleepless” garnered the band a Juno nomination. His journey as a uniquely talented producer also started with Jacksoul. In 1997 he signed a publishing deal with Polygram Canada and then with the Universal Publishing Group in 2001. At the same time, he was also working as an in-house producer at Sony Music Canada.
Brent has written, recorded and produced for such Canadian treasures as Tom Wilson (Junkhouse) and Edwin (I Mother Earth). In 2002 he met writer/producer Robbie Patterson. The two quickly forged a solid easy-going musical bond and co-produced 3 of the 4 songs featured on Canada’s premiere reggae pop artist Snow’s EMI release “Two Hands Clapping”.
Over the years Brent’s collaborations have resulted in several gold records. He is quietly proud of both his accomplishments and the incredible journey that music continues to take him on. He is immensely grateful for the talent and inspiration that surrounds him daily.

About Marcus Gazzellone (Drums)
Marcus describes his style as modern-funk-fusion, which brings an exciting feel to the music he performs. He is a highly versatile player, appearing on drums with several acts. He is also a prolific writer, local recording producer and an in-demand live-sound engineer and lighting technician. When asked about his philosophy of performance, Marcus channelled James Brown and declared “GIVE THE DRUMMER SUMM!!”

Marcus is always looking to future projects such as HAUS TRIO allowing him to experiment in a jazz improv setting.
ABOUT THE “LIVEStream.LOVE.JAZZ.Series”
“We love organically grown events and this series is a prime example of that. In January of 2019, we started a series called “IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD” when local jazz pianist Doug Mundy asked us if we could store his Steinway grand piano at our Shady Acres Studio. We knew how our jazz fans LOVE the intimate concerts so we thought why not do one ‘In our own back yard’.
The first 4-part piano series was a huge success so we then decided to add another 4 shows and then another 2! 10 shows in total for 2019 and when the piano was removed we decided to continue with a guitar series. Part 4 of the guitar series came during the COVID-19 pandemic so we decided to adapt to the times. Our NEW live-streamed events are now in YOUR own backyard. ‘From our back yard to yours’
To align with our tag line: LIVE LOVE JAZZ and the current situation, we have re-branded our series to be called the “LIVEStream.LOVE.JAZZ.Series”.
We do look forward to having our guests gather in our backyard again soon (when it is safe to do so) but until then we are thrilled to be able to live-stream our events and to keep the music alive in Niagara and beyond”
