TORONTO (May 19, 2016)—Mark your calendar: Slaight Music will present UNISON JAM 2 on Thursday, June 16th. This exceptional night of Canadian music comes back to The Phoenix Concert Theatre and features a dozen celebrated Canadian artists sharing their talent, their music and the stage with one another—all while supporting the work of the Unison Benevolent Fund.
“In 2015, the first UNISON JAM was a celebration of having raised over one million dollars, and a chance to announce the activation of Unison’s emergency financial relief program for music industry professionals in crisis.” Said Catharine Saxberg, Unison co-founder and Chair of the Board, “But it was clear by the end of the night, from both the artists and the audience, that Unison Jam had so much more life in it!”
Presented by Slaight Music, UNISON JAM 2 is thrilled to announce performances for the show include: I Mother Earth, The Trews, Raine Maida of Our Lady Peace, Tim Hicks, James Black of Finger Eleven, Tom Wilson, Tomi Swick and Ascott Royals.
Additional headliners will be announced in the coming days.
Praise for UNISON JAM 2015
“There is an endless list of reasons why the UNISON JAM at The Phoenix Concert Theatre this past week was the most memorable CMW event I’ve attended in 5 years; an all-star line-up, dynamic covers, once-in-a-lifetime collaborations to name a few…”
“Not only was it a smorgasbord of notable acts playing their own songs and famous Canadian covers… Seeing all of these artists play together and enjoy performing together for such a wonderful cause was absolutely inspirational.”
