MUSIC FOR ALL SEASONS

Tickets: Adult $37 | Senior $32 | Under 30 $22

 


With 13 nominations to their credit, including 8 for their latest album, Chasse-Galerie, MAZ have set themselves apart with their unique blend of acoustic trad and electric jazz. Inspired by one of Quebec’s most famous legends, the group’s concert has been praised by audiences and critics alike, owing to MAZ’s vibrant stage energy.

With its debut, Télescope, the band laid the groundwork of its unique style, which combines traditional Québécois music, modal jazz, and electro. Through this album, often described as futuristic, MAZ already began to reveal their modern take on Québec’s past and present instrumental culture, earning them five award nominations, including one for the JUNO of best instrumental album.

Marc Maziade (electric guitar, banjo, foot percussion and programming), Pierre-Olivier Dufresne (violin, mandolin and foot percussion), Roxane Beaulieu (keys) and Hugo Blouin (double bass, violin) invite you to hop on a wild flying canoe and journey through their unique musical universe. On stage, these brilliant musicians form a deeply palpable connection, offering trance-inducing grooves, engaging sound textures, and frenzied foot stomps at each of their intense performances.

Since their beginnings, MAZ have presented their concert at various show­case events throughout Canada (Pacific Contact, OCFF, Mundial Montréal, RADARTS, ROSEQ, and Rideau) and in the United States (FAI—2012, 2013, 2015 and APAP). This visibility has enabled them to share their music with audiences all over Canada. To this date, MAZ have several tours and over a hundred performances under their belt.
