The Aeolian presents Broadsway in "The Most Wonderful Time... Maybe"
Join Canada’s Leading Ladies of Theatre, Jazz, and Cabaret as they celebrate the Season with a fabulous evening of Holiday classics and lesser-known seasonal gems, all put together in original, arrangements with tons of musicality and humour! It’s The Most Wonderful Time … Maybe!! The show features songs from Broadsway’s recording of the same name (“ … a musical version of the best office Christmas party ever!” ~ Mark Rheaume, CBC Radio) as well as several crowd favourites. Whether performing as a trio, or alongside some of Canada’s finest Jazz and Theatre musicians, this show consistently brings audiences to their feet and is sure to be a brilliant addition to any concert series as a Seasonal highlight!
“Three talented ladies who know their way around Jazz harmonies, sing their heads off, and actually entertain the hell our of their audiences!” ~ Jim Caruso, Host, Jim Caruso’s Cast Party, Birdland, New York
“The Broads - beauty, brains, and talent - it doesn’t get much better than that - wait, yes it does! Add their wicked sense of humour … this CD is going to stay at the top of my rotation … “ ~ Sandy Graham, Cashbox Canada
Broadsway … the brilliant combination of fabulous voices, clever arrangements, excellent music, and side-splitting humour!
Heather Bambrick (National Jazz Award Vocalist of the Year), Diane Leah (Dora Mavor Moore Award nominee), and Julie Michels (international touring artist) combine their respective musical experience and influences in a show that is eclectic, funny, and very musical!
From the moment they first hit the stage together, Broadsway has been creating quite a buzz – as well as a steadily growing fan base – in every venue they’ve played, from Roy Thomson Hall and the Jazz Bistro in Toronto, to Birdland and the Metropolitan Room in New York. They’ve been featured in some of Canada’s top Jazz and Cabaret festivals, as well as various concert series and feature presentations. Their music brings together a repertoire that ranges from Jazz and Theatre, to Pop and even Classical … all delivered with passion, power, poignance, and plenty of humour!
After releasing their debut recording Old Friends to rave reviews, Broadsway is following things up with two exciting ventures. They make their orchestra debut with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra in April, 2016, AND they’re releasing their follow-up CD: The Most Wonderful Time … Maybe. This seasonal recording features some of Canada’s finest musicians, as well as Broadsway’s signature takes on both Holiday classics, and lesser known seasonal gems. Once again, the Broads deliver arrangements that are fresh, funny, exciting, and uniquely “Broadsway”!!
Whether live or on record, Broadsway should NEVER be missed!!! “Broadsway: from Gershwin to Gaga … the only thing they take seriously is the music!”
