For a long time it has been a dream of ours to organize a Jazz Series in which we can bring forth the many talented musicians of the Niagara Region.

We started the Twilight Jazz Series in October of 2011 and we are happy and proud to announce that it is still going strong. We now bring in a different band monthly and enjoy sharing our love and passion for jazz with the other “Twilighters” that support the series.

We have recently completed our 7th season at Mahtay Café and Lounge and have brought over 120 jazz ensembles and over 200 jazz musicians to the Twilight stage.  Some past performers include:  John Sherwood, Graham Lear, Randy Stirtzinger, John Neudorf, Kevin Turcotte, Mark Lalama, Mike Murley, Kevin Breit, Jim Casson, Barbra Lica, Reg Schwager, Alistair Robertson, the Heavyweights Brass Band, Rodger Niznik, Bill McBirnie, Ashley St. Pierre and many more. 

Our 7th TJS season takes place on the first Sunday of every month from 6pm - 9pm (October - July) at Mahtay Cafe.    Tickets and seasons Passes are available HERE.  Reservations/advance tickets highly recommended as we have a full house every time!

And as for another dream of ours we are now working on our 6th annual TD Niagara Jazz Festival taking place next July 19 - 21 and July 26 - 28, 2019.  Our three-day annual jazz festival has expanded now to TWO WEEKENDS in July, with the first weekend component taking place in Port Dalhousie in St. Catharines from July 19 - 21 and the 2nd weekend in historic Niagara-on-the-Lake from July 26 - 28. As always, we are dedicated to celebrating the art form of jazz by showcasing the finest Canadian and internationally renowned jazz musicians. With a multi-venue series of live jazz concerts, educational initiatives and free events, this festival in Niagara-on-the Lake, St. Catharines, and select venues throughout the Niagara Region is not to be missed!  For more info on our TD Niagara Jazz Festival please visit the website HERE or call 1-844-LIV-JAZZ (1-844-548-5299).
