Carson Freeman and Tyler Yarema
Friday June 15th, 2018

Another treat we have coming up on the calendar is an in-demand wind instrumentalist who has been here before, and we’re excited to see him back. Carson Freeman returns on June 15th to accompany Tyler Yarema. Carson is a first call saxophonist/flautist/clarinetist within the Toronto music scene. He has played alongside notable musicians including Diana, Krall, Michael Bublé, Gino Vannelli, Corey Hart, MC Hammer, Max Weinberg, and more than 10 Grammy Winning Artists. He was awarded the 2010 Canadian Smooth Jazz Wind Instrumentalist of the Year, and has entertained a veritable “who’s who” list of celebrities. With a modern tone and approach, with a foot steeped in tradition, Carson Freeman is a great compliment to Tyler’s swinging jazz set.

Fun fact: Carson also loves cooking and was featured in five episodes of the Canadian Reality TV show “Come Dine With Me Canada” (CDWMC), winning first place for his hosting and cooking skills. Sounds like a win-win for a dinner concert!

Dinner Concert Artist Profiles

Alison Young

Alison Young

Our main music man Tyler Yarema needs no introduction. His expert piano playing is the perfect pairing with a wide variety of guests that grace the stage at Mrs. Mitchell’s Restaurant.

Alison Young

She may be young in age as well as name, but the soul she breathes into that saxophone dates right back to the roots of jazz and swing.

We’re always excited to have her graceful presence  on the Mrs. Mitchell’s stage, complementing Tyler’s powerful piano prowess and adding sweet harmonies to his masterful vocal melodies.

Mary-Grace “Gracie” Marino

Gracie MarinoGracie has easily endeared herself to our Violet Hill audience and we know she’ll receive a warm welcome once again. If you haven’t had the opportunity yet, be sure to take in this show.

An incredibly talented young singer/songwriter/guitarist/vocalist, Gracie hails from Oakville, Ontario. Her voice has been compared to singers such as Etta James, Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone. Though capable in any genre, she favours jazz RnB, and her compositions portray hauntingly honest lyrics combined with groove and soul. She never disappoints, delivering an entertaining set that perfectly showcases her signature powerful vocals and improvisations.

Gracie covers a lot of ground in her performances, with a remarkable vocal range that transitions easily from the dulcet trill of the jazz era to the vocal acrobatics of today’s popular music. She’s no slouch on guitar either, pumping out riffs that complement every groove. Many of the songs she plays are her own originals, which blend smoothly with well-chosen covers for a well-paced and well-rounded set that you’re sure to enjoy.

Janice HaganJanice Hagan

Get ready for a warm and jazzy evening with another of Toronto’s great musical gifts.

Songstress Janice Hagan captivates audiences with her sultry renditions of some of the most famous songs in the lexicons of jazz, big band, cabaret and show tunes. She maintained a weekly show at The Reservoir Lounge for many years, has several recording albums and credits to her name, and has made numerous appearances at Canada’s top jazz festivals.

As Heather Phares from All Music Guide said about one of Janice’s albums:

“Let’s misbehave! features singer Janice Hagan’s jazzy interpretations of some of Broadway’s biggest, sassiest songs, including “All That Jazz,” “Whatever Lola Wants,” and “My Heart Belongs to Daddy.” Hagan’s throaty alto is a good vehicle for these songs as well as “Let’s Fall in Love,” “Makin’ Whoopee,” and smokier tracks like “September Song” and “Do It Again.” … “quite an enjoyable listen for fans of show tunes and vocal jazz.”

Our main music man Tyler Yarema needs no introduction. His expert piano playing is the perfect pairing with Janice’s rich vocals. Together they render such authentic performances of these classic songs that the listener is transported to another time.

Your evening includes an engaging performance and a four-course meal of soup, salad, entrée and dessert for just $65 per person*. There’s no better deal in town!

Time: 7pm seating for 7:30pm show start
