ABOUT JAY REED:

Jay Reed’s 30-year journey as a guitarist has been influenced by a diverse range of music styles – from the classic rock sounds of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, to the technical brilliance and infectious swing of Oscar Peterson, and the more modern sounds of John Scofield and Wayne Krantz – all of these and more find their way into Reed’s list of influences.
At Mohawk College in Hamilton, Canada, Reed studied jazz theory and history, small group and big band arranging, and received ensemble and private guitar instruction with some of the best jazz musicians in the country. Upon receiving his diploma, he began performing as both a leader and sideman in and around the Toronto area. Reed has played more than a thousand gigs in his over twenty-year professional career, and has presented original music at the Brantford International Jazz Festival, the TD Niagara Jazz Festival, Willowbank Jazz Festival and In The Soil Arts Festival, among others.

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”
