Jazz festing

Mike Essoudry's Mash Potato Mashers 
The Montreal Jazz Festival is in full swing (pun intended) for the next week. Taking in some of the free acts, I did a little sketching on the very sunny steps of Place des arts and listened to Mike Essoudry's Mash Potato Mashers. They are a nine-piece band from Ontario. They were a lot of fun.

Swing Tonique Jazz Band
After about an hour, it was time to seek a little shade. Fortunately, I found a spot in front of the Swing Tonique Jazz Band. A more traditional ensemble, but they put on a good show, nonetheless.

The Montreal Jazz Festival continues for another full week, and the weather is looking good.

  1. I saw this band too (I recognize the outfits and instruments! They were great.) Wish I'd have seen you sketching so I could watch you drawing. Cheers!
