SymphRONica Back for a Fourth Year at the World's Largest Arts Fest - Edinburgh Festival Fringe!

**** (4 Stars) – The Scotsman
**** (4 Stars) – The Herald

When SymphRONica first appeared on the Fringe in 2016, audiences and media alike responded to the band’s chamber music panache and jazz dive grit with enthusiasm. BBC Radio 3’s In Tune featured them on three episodes. Subsequent visits to Edinburgh in August, which have included rave receptions at Fringe by the Sea in North Berwick and the Tron Theatre in Glasgow, have seen the SymphRONica Appreciation Society’s UK division gather momentum.

With a brand-new album, SymphRONica UpfRONt leading the charge and a line-up that combines Davis’ compatriot, guitarist and musical director, Kevin Barrett with leading Scottish players including drummer and Jazzwise magazine ‘One to Watch’ Stephen Henderson and violinist and radio presenter Seonaid Aitken, SymphRONica is set to take Fringe 2019 by storm. This is the music you’ve been looking for, the jazz you want to hear.

Jaymz Bee's Caravan of Music

April 15th, 2019

A fundraising event for Unison Benevolent Fund
20 bands in 10 rooms!

Old Mill Toronto, 21 Old Mill Road
$200 Gala Dinner 6pm
$40 Caravan 8pm - 12 midnight

Every year broadcaster-producer-impresario Jaymz Bee celebrates his birthday with at least one fundraising event for charity. This year will mark his biggest yet with a series of simultaneous concerts held in ten rooms at Old Mill Toronto that will benefit Unison Benevolent Fund, an organization that provides counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community.

Jaymz Bee’s Caravan of Music is a four hour event where hundreds of people tour the various rooms at Old Mill Toronto, taking in a few songs from each band in each room. Tickets (ie. a Passport) are $40 and get you into all of the rooms. As you exit the room your passport is stamped and those with completed passports (meaning those who have been inside every room at least once) are entered in a draw for some fabulous prizes at the end of the night.

Ron is proud to be a part of this fantastic event for a great cause.

The night also features a VIP Gala Dinner from 6-8 pm with a special concert from Tom Cochrane and friends. Gala tickets can be purchased for $200 and ticket holders also have full run of the Caravan that goes from 8pm to Midnight.
