Wow!!! What an outstanding night last Thursday Night!! Perennial favorite World Music award and chart topper Johannes Linstead returned to entertain a fabulous audience with his brilliant World Fusion/Latin/Mediterranean/Spanish classical repertoire performed on his birthday at his favorite outdoor space to his favorite Unionville audience.

A  line from a note from Johannes following his performance……” I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for making my birthday such an amazing day for me. We had an awesome time performing for such a great audience. This is exactly why I wanted to spend my birthday performing for our favourite town at our favourite summer music fest! There's no place I would have rather been. So on behalf of the Tom, Geoff, Jordan, Jarrod and myself thank you once again!”

This Thursday night we are thrilled to have a very classy lady and outstanding artist, Jeanine Mackie. Jeanine, together with the Jeanine Mackie Band, the who’s who of Toronto professional musicians will be sure to treat us to a wonderful mix of R&B, Fusion, Jazz and Soul as Thursday Nights at the Bandstand together with Jeanine kicks off Markham Jazz Festival in Unionville, August 14 through 16.

Thanks as always to our wonderful sponsors, our great artist lineup, our community and visitors to our community for your support of Live Music presented by Thursday Nights at the Bandstand.
