The highly successful JazzNhouse (Almonte) series of professional-calibre live jazz house concerts is now in its fourth year and needs to grow. Organizer Arnie Francis says "Our audiences have grown so much and so many jazz artists are looking to us for performance opportunities that (in order to grow) we need to export the concept to other neighbourhoods. It's a win-win for everyone." Currently Manotick is a front runner and Arnie is confident that the Village is a community that would welcome and support a 'JazzNhouse (Manotick)' series. A special JazzN.ca Manotick backyard concert on August 16th will test the water for local support of such a series. There are only a few seats left for this concert, which features The Chris Maskell Quartet from Montreal.
Arnie would like to launch a JazzNhouse (Manotick) 2015/16 season this fall. A search is currently underway for Manotick residents willing to volunteer the use of their homes to host one or more concerts in the 2015/16 season.

If you are a Manotick resident and are interested, or if you know a Manotick resident who might be interested, please contact Chris Thompson at 613-692-5380 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
