The CONSTANCE MARGARET CHRISTMAS BALL is the perfect opportunity to get into the swing of the holidays and dance to an all-star nine-piece band in one of Toronto’s original art deco dance halls, the Palais Royale.

The charity ball marks its 7th year in honour of Tory’s mother, Constance Margaret, who passed away after battling cancer. Reaching out to the community and connecting through food -- especially during the holiday season -- was a priority for Constance Margaret and something Tory shares with his friends and musicians alike.

Tory Cassis, an accomplished musician and Juno nominee, will be joined by many of Canada’s finest musicians: Tyler Yarema (keyboards), Jesse Barksdale (guitar) Mark Mariash (drums), Mike Carson (bass), William Sperandei (trumpet), William Carn (trombone), Richard Underhill (saxophone), Scott Neilson (saxophone) and special guest vocalist Janice Hagan.

There will be a FREE dance lesson hosted by Jessica Jenkins at 7pm.

All proceeds for the event will be donated to the FoodShare Good Food for Life program.

One Lucky Piano pays tribute to a Yamaha grand piano that resided at The Montreal Bistro for over twenty years. When the club closed, Jaymz Bee asked local pianists to come record one last song of their choosing. All money raised from this CD goes directly to JAZZ.FM91, who, in turn use it for bursaries and scholarships for emerging jazz artists.

This recording features seventeen of Canada's best solo jazz pianists, from world renowned Gene DiNovi and Adam Makowicz, to Canadian legends Norman Amadio and Nancy Walker. Whether it is a beautiful ballad by rising star Thompson Egbo Egbo or a mind altering romp by Michael Kaeshammer, this CD is sure to impress any piano aficionado. It also contains one of the final recordings of the late, great John Arpin.

JAZZ.FM91 presents The Jazz Safari™
