Artist, producer, impresario and CBC broadcaster Andrew Craig (creator of the acclaimed Gospel Christmas Project, as well as the Sistahs Project, featured in TD’s Then And Now 2010) brings 14 of Toronto’s Black keyboard players (all of Canadian, Caribbean-Canadian and African-American origin) together on one stage, for The Brothas Concert - one extraordinary night of music!
Billy Alexander, Wade O. Brown, Eddie Bullen, Quincy Bullen, Joel Chambers, Andrew Craig, Joel Joseph, Maxwell Langford, Christopher Rouse, Michael Shand, Bruce Skerritt, Richard Wilson and Anthony Wright represent the cream of the keyboard crop in the Greater Toronto Area. Several members of this elite group have worked with a staggering array of Juno-winning artists, in a variety of genres. Many have also won multiple awards for their own artistic output. Specializing in styles ranging from traditional jazz and blues to Gospel, from vintage funk to contemporary R & B, from classical to pop, and everything in between, The Brothas represent three generations of virtuosi from Toronto’s Black community.
In this special once-in-a-lifetime concert, The Brothas will play solo, duets and trios, right up to full ensemble pieces. Various vocal talents will be on display as well. The Brothas will also pay special tribute to two members of their ranks who have recently passed: local keyboard legends David Williams and Washington Savage, each of whom left indelible marks on the Toronto music scene.
This event is a must-see for lovers of keyboard and synthesized music, and music aficionados in general.
