Jazz Festival Hi-Lites : Organic, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band

Another great day at the Toronto Jazz Festival, an amazing sunny Sunday.

Out of the slew of shows to see and hear, I only managed to see a couple later in the afternoon and evening. Started with $5 dollar pints and 1/2 price appetizers at Joe Mama’s. ‘Organic’, the regular Sunday house band were the classic jazz standards entertainment.

After this I headed just up the street a few blocks to Nathan Phillips Square for the main show of the day. Blues was on the menu tonight. First up was pedal steel maestro Robert Randolph and his Family Band.

Headliners the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band ripped up some great rock and blues. Drawing from a deep repertoire and throwing a few SRV and BB King covers in, finishing off with their classic Blue on Black followed by an amazing cover of Voodoo Child to close it off. Awesome show!
