The Rider Raiders

The Rider Raiders are a funky four or five piece brass band comprised of some of Toronto’s grooviest and most accomplished musicians. Born in a canoe at Harbourfront in 2017, they’ve been stalwarts on the Ossington and Queen West club scene ever since, raising spirits with an infectious blend of groovy funk jazz and classic rock covers at Reposado Bar every Saturday night.

The band features Juno Award winning alto sax player Richard Underhill, lyrical jazz trumpet player Tim Hamel, world renowned drummer phenom Great Bob Scott, rising star sousaphone player Nolan Murphy and when they expand to 5 pieces, the incredibly dynamic young trombonist Charlotte McAfee-Brunner.

JER

JER is a Brazilian alternative rock singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist and music producer. Beginning her musical career at a young age, JER grew up around the semi-arid cities of Bahia, the magical Brazilian state known for music and celebration. JER is a champion who survives off her own skill and faith. Over the course of a decade she has cultivated several impressive musical projects that span different genres and across continents. Her participation in Canada’s musical scene is something continuous and wide reaching. 

Coletivo Semente

Mari Palhares is a Percussionist who moved to Toronto from Sao Paulo, Brazil at the age of 19. Her interest in percussion led her to Maracatu (Afro-Brazilian percussion) at the age of 17. In 2007, already living in Toronto, she joined Maracatu Baque de Bamba, founded by Aline Morales (lead singer/director of the drumming troupe). Mari has since become the co-leader, a teacher and the producer of Baque de Bamba, as well as a well-known artist within and beyond the Brazilian community in Toronto.
