2019 NMA Jazz Artist Of The YEAR! WOW!!! What a great night at the 2019 Niagara Music Awards! I'm still pinching myself to make sure it wasn't a dream. It was such an honour to have been nominated in 2 categories, with over 700 musical submissions and then to be asked to perform at the 2019 NMA Gala it was all incredible. To top it all off - Geneviève-Renée Bisson and The Jimmy Stahl Big Band won the 2019 Niagara Music Award for Jazz Artist of the Year! None of this would have been possible with out the amazing talents of all the musicians in The Jimmy Stahl Big Band, an absolute powerhouse band.
Special thanks to Jukasa Studios, Darren Magierowski and Jill Zimmermann our sound engineers, Todd Brown and Dave Grand of The Niagara Music Awards and John Law who has always been so supportive of us with articles and feature stories in the Review and Standard and to Chico Sanchez and Dylan Marz, our biggest promoters. Last but not least - Thank you to all of our friends and fans!! We love you all! Stay tuned for what's next. Exciting days ahead.
Jimmy and the band are excited to announce their nomination for a Niagara Music Award in two categories, Jazz Artist of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year for their unreleased album with Genevieve-Renee Bisson.
After 50 years of live performances and various recordings, Jimmy Stahl has taken his legendary project to another level, with new releases set to launch this fall. He turned to Chris Curry to produce a live audience studio recording at Session’s on the River in April. The successful concert made song selections easier for Jimmy as he prepared for an intense weekend at the world-class Jukasa Media Group in June. Over the course of two days, the band laid down 27 tracks with the help of JUNO-award winning sound engineers, Darren “Jeter” Magierowski, and Jill Zimmermann.
Come out and experience the Jimmy Stahl Big Band, live in-studio showcase, live-streamed and video recorded. Double-header ft. two guest vocalists, Michael Vanhevel and Genevieve-Renee Bisson. Sunday, April 28th, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Limited in-studio floor seating tickets $25. Call Jimmy to reserve your ticket 905-933-2121.
