The Courthouse Announces Impressive Lineup

Toronto’s newest jazz club, the Courthouse, has released a list of world-class jazz performers who will grace its stage this month.

Started by Nick Di Donato, President and CEO of the Liberty Entertainment Group, and Patrick Taylor, director of the Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival, the new venue resides in the old courthouse building on Adelaide Street East in Toronto.

The Courthouse fits somewhere between a concert hall and a private club, and boasts a7 1/2 ft. Yamaha Concert Grand on its raised bandstand.

The Courthouse offers live music five nights a week, Tuesdays through Saturdays, and features regional and international jazz greats.
