We are delighted to present a few words from Matt Zimbel, Manteca’s band leader.
Hello Markham!
So excited to be coming back to see you on our only Toronto GTA gig this year!  Oh dear, perhaps we inadvertently insulted you, throwing you wantonly into the “GTA" when everyone knows that Markham is a city-state on it’s very own, a veritable independent nation - with a seat on the United Nations security council no less!  My bad!
But here’s the thing… we are coming back to Markham for our very first live gig in front of humans since the fall of 2019 when, well, you know what happened next…
Now we’re vaxxed, saxxed and relaxed!  With a brand new show that we have never played in Markham!
As the imperial leader of Manteca, I am far from unbiased, but I will say, off the record, just between us, that this show is slammin’ and you do not want to miss it and we will not be playing in the area for the rest of the year because we're going into the studio to do our 14th recording
We, at Manteca are looking forward to playing for you especially because it is your 25th Anniversary!  Which is incredible when you think about it! 
You are twenty-five! Congrats!  We, on the other hand are 43(!), making us your elders. 
So  we hope you will support your local, brilliantly curated festival by listening to your elders (us) and buying a ticket to this show.   Below is a short video to give you a “hint” of what might happen...
See you on the 17th of August at 7:30 at the Museum for the only show in  Markham, Ontario, Canada.”
See you there and enjoy!
The TD Markham Jazz Festival is a not-for-profit organization with a mandate to enrich cultural life in the region by bringing emerging and established jazz artists to Markham for all to enjoy. Established in 1998, the festival draws more than 25,000 residents and visitors to the streets of Unionville during the third weekend in August. Local and international artists deliver over 30 open-air performances during the weekend as well as in selected “hot spots” and at a ticketed opening-night concert. During the year, the festival hosts “Hot Spot Concerts” at selected venues in Markham. TD Canada Trust became its title sponsor in 2014.
