Merging jazz improvisation with contemporary urban music in a way you've never quite heard by a live band before, re.verse brings you on an instrumental journey through a vibrant spectrum of sounds - classic and current hip hop, r&b, soul, funk, house, tropical sounds, modern jazz and more. This one of a kind Toronto based ensemble comprised of 6-string electric bassist/bandleader Damian Matthew, drummer Chino De Villa, guitarist Robb Cappelletto, and sometimes synth/keyboardist Todd Pentney, has developed a unique paired down approach to reimagining unforgettable songs from past eras while mingling them with current flavours and grooves from the music of today, treating their performances just as much like a DJ set as they do a live concert. With a repertoire of over 150 songs, including a growing catalogue of original music inspired by their influences, re.verse uses improvisation to seamlessly connect the dots between different vibes, styles and eras of urban music, while imparting their own unmistakable flavour on all of it.
Play the Parks is presented by TD Bank, produced by the Downtown Yonge BIA.
