Jazz at The Paintbox Bistro ft. Jackie Richardson

The Archie Alleyne Trio, featuring trumpeter Alexander Brown Cabrera and special guest, Jackie Richardson!

Paint box Lounge is proud to host a celebration of drummer Archie Alleyne’s 80th Birthday.

Alleyne is a true legend of the Toronto jazz scene, having spent over 10 years in the house band at the fabled Town Tavern, as well as being the drummer of choice for many visiting band leaders.

Alleyne was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 2011, in honour of both his musical longevity and his support of young musicians through his foundation, the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund.

Joining Archie on stage will be his long-time trio, Stacie McGregor on piano and Artie Roth on bass. 

They will be joined by young trumpet star Alex Brown Cabrera and Canada’s soulful jazz vocalist, Jackie Richardson.
