The Canadian Smoothies Are Coming!

The Canadian Smoothies are coming to Toronto!

The 2011 Canadian Smoothies, the New Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards will be taking place at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, Ontario (Just west of Toronto) on Friday April 29th.

Unlike the previous awards show that was cancelled in San Diego two weeks ago, this event has a stable history. They’ve been given out “Smoothies”, highlighting mostly Canadian-based artists since 2005. There will be a number of awards handed out, including “International Artist of the Year” and “International Instrumentalist of the Year.”

This year, the George Benson Lifetime Achievement Award will be given to guitarist, Larry Carlton. The multi-Grammy award winning performer has been a mainstay of Jazz music and has entertained millions worldwide. His album, ‘Discovery’ in 1987 helped established the music we now know as “Smooth Jazz”. He’s also been a member of the jazz super group, “Fourplay”.

The event is sponsored by Wave 94.7FM Toronto/Hamilton. For more information, go to http://www.canadiansmoothies.ca/.
