Derek Hines, Marketing Director of the Sun Life Financial UpTown Waterloo Jazz Festival is pleased to announce the expanded Jazz After Jazz series of small venue shows.
“This series of gigs compliments the main stage performances at the Sun Life Financial UpTown Waterloo Jazz Festival next weekend,” said Derek. The shows will be held at Sole Restaurant & Wine Bar and The Jazz Room in the Huether Hotel. “This is an opportunity for jazz fans to see artists perform in smaller and more intimate venues as opposed to the big outdoor stage.”
“In addition, the outdoor performances cannot run past 10:30 pm. These indoor shows will go a little later into the evening,” adds Derek.
Some of the Jazz After Jazz shows have a nominal ticket charge since they are not technically part of the outdoor Jazz Festival and involve different artists who are not on the Festival program.
