Rebecca Hennessy’s Fog Brass Band (Ontario)
Sweet-toned Toronto trumpeter Rebecca Hennessy’s Fog is a New Orleans-inspired brass band party with the intricacies of a modern jazz group. This band features the brassy fun-times frontline of Jay Burr (tuba), Tom Richards (trombone) and Rebecca Hennessy (trumpet) with Don Scott (guitar), Tania Gill (piano), and Nico Dann (drums), playing funky blues, old country, Balkan folk tunes, and high-energy jazz-rock grooves. Hennessy formed Fog in 2014 shortly after a seven-month residency in New York. Since then, Fog has been performing and recording regularly and in 2016 was nominated for the TD Grand Prix De Jazz at the Montreal Jazz Festival and was also nominated for TD Halifax Jazz Festival Singray Rising Star Award.
