September - Jazz - Simcoe Jazz Society

Dinny And The Allstars opened the season in Barrie at Sticky Fingers. That is where the Simcoe Jazz Society holds their jazz once a month. They invite bands from all over Toronto and the surrounding area. It is a lot of fun and you meet many of the same people and it becomes a great house party. There is lots of dancing at this event. The members love to dance up there. Ted Fry is the president and runs this wonderful event . It runs from September to June. I highly recomend attending.

Helpful Ladybugs

Just wanted to let you know. Ladybug Harbor, one of our favorite stores in Port Credit will have their website up and running soon. They have opened their doors for arts and crafts exhibitions and events several times and are very supportive of the local jazz scene.

Anyway, enough of me, here's their url so you can bookmark it for later or better yet call in. They stock unique metalwork, wood carvings, clothing, lamps, artwork and craft work items. Gifts are available in all price ranges so your sure to find something for friends, the home or a special treat for yourself.

The South Side Shuffle

The South Side Shuffle is always a great event. Dinny's band is always asked to play on the street for the shuffle. It is a lot of fun as there are many other bands and the street is closed off for 4 hours while the bands play.

He looks forward to this every year and it really draws a lot of people to Port Credit. There is a lot of hard work put into this event by Chuck Jackson of The Downchilds Band and hundreds of volunteers. There are stages at the park and many big name performers such as The Downchilds Blues Band and Ronnie Hawkins. It runs from a Wednesday after Labour Day to the following Sunday. It truly is worth going to.
