RECAPS

 

DAPP THEORY FEATURING ANDY MILNE

"My music is an expression of my experiences as a man, transformed into sound", says Andy Milne of his unique jazz style.  While I’m not a die-hard jazz officiando, I do recognize talent when I hear it.  I originally went to hear these guys as our Rich Brown had talked so much about this project.  I ended up leaving with a new respect for the genre of jazz.  The band consisted of Andy Milne, Rich Brown, Sean Rickman and Gregoire Maret.  Some of you may have met Sean Rickman when he was in Toronto while touring with Me’shell N’degeocello.

 

 

MOLLY JOHNSON

Well, this smoky songtress does it again.  And the band was absolutely kickin’!  The band featured Andrew Craig, Mike Downes, Colleen Allen and Mark McLean.  Standing ovation from the people who faired the weather at Harbourfront on Saturday.  If you don’t know, Molly has a new CD out entitled “Another Day”, available in stores now!  Definitely worth adding to your collection!

Roze Jardine took the ACT OUT initiative a step further and wrote the urban musical, Da Real Deal and cast the youths whose lives the play mirrors.  Da Real Deal will entertain and enlighten people from all communities about such topics as the increasing severity of HIV/ AIDS, homosexuality, teen pregnancy, healthy sexuality, relationships, suicide and violence.
