Twilight Jazz Series 2021


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 has now shifted to an online series due to the current pandemic.  Once audiences are allowed to gather again in the Province of Ontario, the series will be presented at various partner venues with a livestreamed version of each show for audiences to enjoy from home.

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 Sherwood, James Bryan, Barbra Lica, Graham Lear, Reg Schwager, Ashley St. Pierre, Mike Murley, Jim Casson, Heilig Manoeuvre, Kevin Breit, Poco Latino, Kevin Turcotte, Rodger Niznik, Ori Dagan, John 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.
