CanadaMichael Menegon’s CD Release for I Just Live Here
Toronto roots singer and songwriter Michael Menegon (who is perhaps more well-known as a dancer, choreographer and festival artistic director) releases his first full-length independent album ‘I Just Live Here’ (this CD release concert is part of the Junction City Music Hall Summer Showcase Series). Full details below.

Menegon launches the first single and video (track 10) titled “You’re My Religion”. The video was directed and edited by John Preketes at JPC Post Studios in the Junction, Toronto and it was filmed in a historic house in Baby Point Gates area in west Toronto.

VIDEO: https://youtu.be/8rVW5B01SCw.

AUDIO: https://soundcloud.com/michaelmenegon/10-youre-my-religion.

‘I Just Live Here’ (official online album release date: July 7, 2017) is an eclectic mix influenced by world beat, folk, Caribbean rhythms and modern contemporary (classical/electronic). The album was produced by John Preketes of JPC Post Studios, Toronto. “Tell Me” (track five) was produced by John Menegon at Upland Recording Studio, Kingston, NY. Mastering was by Peter Letros at Wreck House Mastering, Toronto.

Musicians on CD: Michael Menegon (acoustic/electric guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion, drums, vocals), Nick Yaksich (electric guitar), John Menegon (upright/electric bass, keyboard), John Preketes (programmed drums and synth keys), Aquiles Navarro (trumpet, synth bass), James David Smith (piano), Rob Greenway (drums), Kayt Lucas and J. P. Merzetti (vocals).

WHO: ‘Michael Menegon’ and Toronto’s ‘Twentythousandays’ (Donn Dixon, Richard Begley and Paul Smith).

WHEN: Thursday, July 6, 2017; Doors 8:00 p.m., Michael Menegon at 9:00 p.m.

ARTIST QUOTE: Michael Menegon states, “‘I Just Live Here’ is about popular issues, what I know and where I live. A representation of the times. My hope for the album release show is to take the music and songs to the next level with the live performance, which I endeavor to present not as an exact reproduction of the recording, but a live interpretation.”

Born and raised in Montreal, Menegon moved to Toronto in 1980. He picked up the guitar when he was eight years-old, and played in bands as a teenager. Music has not been his only passion. He spent two years as a master student at the Banff Centre for the Arts theatre program (1982-83) and later trained as a dancer and was a professional choreographer for over 20 years.

Ironically, it wasn’t until Menegon started working as a professional dancer that he fully connected with his musical roots. He apprenticed with Cuban born percussionist Ricardo Abruet, who became Menegon’s mentor while he trained at the School of the Toronto Dance Theatre (1983-1986). “That connection changed my life forever and music was always why I danced or choreographed,” he explains.

From 1997 to 2004, Menegon and Toronto musician Alexander Sascha Tukatsch were breaking boundaries in dance presentation with ‘The Beat Suit Projects’ (music technology based collaboration), and from 1987 to 2006 Menegon was also co-founder and artistic director for the ‘fringe Festival of Independent Dance Artists’ (fFIDA) in Toronto – the largest dance festival in North America. He then directed and programmed the multi-disciplinary and popular ‘Junction Arts Festival’ in Toronto in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Menegon also plays with Toronto group ‘Kayt and the Hard Folk’, and has formed a multi-discipline band called ‘Sound of Movement’ (combines improvised music with dance and video manipulation), and works with his partner Deborah Torr in their organic chocolate shop (COCO Crafted Organic Chocolates) in Toronto’s Baby Point area.

ABOUT:
Michael Menegon – set to launch his first full-length release ‘I Just Live Here’ – is a Montreal born, roots-based Toronto singer and songwriter, who committed to songwriting after years of playing as a musician, performing as a contemporary dancer and choreographer and working as an artistic director for multi-disciplinary festivals. His instinct for writing authentic songs that connect with popular issues has garnered him accolades on the Toronto music scene.

CanadaThe Boxcar Boys

The Boxcar Boys deliver a veritable gumbo of wild gypsy, Dixieland jazz, Klezmer, and folk music performed with a good time New Orleans spirit. The Boxcar Boys are the combined forces of clarinetist and tunesmith John David Williams (Jaron Freeman-Fox and the Opposite of Everything, The Roofhoppers), jazz master Karl Silveira on trombone (The Lemon Bucket Orkestra), violin whiz Laura C. Bates (Trent Severn, Del Bel) soulful accordionist Ronen Segall and JUNO nominee Rob Teehan (Heavyweights Brass Band, Saidah Baba Talibah) on sousaphone.With their first album Dont Be Blue [2011] they caught the ears of critics across the country, placing on the Ejazznews list of Best Canadian Jazz of 2011, receiving 3.5/4 stars in the Toronto Star, as well as praise in Wholenote, and Canadian Folk Music magazines.Their new album Rye Whiskey further explores their unique instrumentation as they delve deeper into both the jazz and folk genres. These 15 live-off-the-floor studio tracks showcase the band's raw acoustic sound and lively performances. Their ability to effortlessly switch from a gritty sprawling blues into a tight western swing number or an emotive tango is demonstrated in compositions by all band members. Rye Whiskey also features charming vocal renditions of folk classics Sam Hall, Rye Whiskey, and Freight Train, a joyous instrumental performance of You Are My Sunshine, and a sentimental lullaby written by composer Joe Ernewein. The band is joined by bluegrass mandolin virtuoso Adrian Gross (Slocan Ramblers) on several tracks. Rye Whiskey captures The Boxcar Boys at their finest, musicians with appreciation for old jazz and folk music who have honed a sound that is undoubtedly their own.Bandleader John David Williams reflects, We had so much fun in the studio, and this comes across on the album. Rye Whiskey really captures the spirit of our live performances. Its a celebration; musicians at play.The Boxcar Boys have preformed at The Beaches Jazz Festival, The TD Jazz Festival, the Scotiabank Marathon, Scotiabank Buskerfest, Blissfest Festival (Harbor Springs, Michigan), Rogers Tennis Cup 2012, Northern Lights Festival (Sudbury), Blue Skies Festival (Clarendon), Savour Stratford (Stratford).

Many people think that any kinds of cleaning works whether it’s for homes, offices, hotels or restaurants, can be done conveniently by themselves or by hiring some servants who need not to be specialized in cleaning services.

For cleaning of big houses, homeowners have to hire cleaning maids in Toronto.

As far as commercial cleaning works (cleaning in offices, hotels, restaurants etc.) are concerned, it’s almost very difficult for any commercial owners to accomplish cleaning tasks by untrained maids or the servants who have not done any kinds of cleaning works earlier. It requires specialized maids in Toronto who have been doing cleaning works for commercial sector for many years. Commercial cleaning works are not simple as people think. There are various kinds of furniture, carpet, doors etc. used in offices which are considered as very sensitive. It requires cleaning with great care. Glass made furniture should be cleaned with soft clothes along with cleaning materials so that there could not be stain on them.

Similarly, doors and windows should be cleaned carefully with utmost care as per the commercial needs and requirements. One of the other most important cleaning works in commercial sector is carpet cleaning which can’t be finished without hiring maids that are expert in it. You can hire maids independently or you can avail the services of a cleaning agency on contractual basis. It depends on your custom needs and requirements but you should choose the best option that is well suited for you. If you are going to avail cleaning services from cleaning agencies, you must check out their reputation in the market over the time.

You can also enquire about the equipments and chemical elements that are used by cleaning agencies. There are various kinds of chemicals available in the markets which are harmful for environment as well as for carpets along with many other cleaning materials. You should avoid these kinds of chemicals or the agency which use them.

Leslie performs regularly as soloist, chamber musician and with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra where she has held the position of principal flute since 2008.   Cecilia String Quartet        November 18, 19, 2016     8:00 PM Hailed for their “powerful” (Chicago Sun-Times) and “dauntingly perfect” (Berliner Zeitung) performances, the CSQ perform at leading venues in North America and Europe.
