Jazz Street Boyz, presented by the Festi Jazz International de Rimouski

Born in the alleys of Montreal in 2010, the Jazz Street Boyz go straight to the point, the blues and the party.

Composed by Jérôme Dupuis-Cloutier on trumpet and piano and Dominic Desjardins on banjo, tenor guitar and vocals. The Jazz Street Boyz make you live an unforgettable moment for sure, their music like their performances being tinged with spontaneity and frenzied solos. An extraordinary chemistry emerges from their unique shows accompanied by exceptional guest musicians in quartet or trio. Their show is a mixture of original compositions with old school jazz, blues, funk and soul flavors mixed with a revisited repertoire from the origins of jazz. It is a very energetic and accessible show which at the same time offers an original and meticulous jazz of its arrangements.

The Jazz Street Boyz released their first album in 2013 (Jazz Street Boyz + guests) which saw them play in several festivals (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal 2014-2015-2017 including the first part of the Preservation Hall Jazz band 's show at the Maisonneuve theater, FestiVoix 2015, Rimouski International Jazz Festival 2018, etc).

Their second live album, Jazz en stock, released in February 2019, was recorded in front of an audience at Madame Wood studio in Montreal. It is a mix of compositions taken from the band's show. In the Music/videos section you can see and listen to the band's performances.

A third album (JSB3) was released in April 2022. It was recorded at Studio du Chemin 4 between fall 2020 and winter 2021 and will be an album of original blues and jazz compositions. The band's sound has become more electric over the years and this album will reflect that.

Free with admission to the Gardens.
