Headlining is The Heavyweights Brass Band, hitting hard from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. with a seasoned blend of groove, energy, virtuosity, and originality. For over a decade, this Toronto-based, New Orleans-inspired brass institution has brought people to their feet with an inspiring blend of original music and unexpected covers.
