Made up of a diverse and multi-generational roster of Toronto-based artists — including Juno-nominated drummer Larry Graves, Surefire Sweat draws on an amalgam of Funk, Jazz, Brass Band, Blues and Worldly rhythms. Inventive arrangements act as a vehicle for the all-star cast of musicians to engage listeners through improvisational explorations and danceable arrangements. Despite being dominantly instrumental in nature, each of the group’s unique pieces is propelled by a narrative: colourful journeys that emote real time metaphors of the human condition.
The band released their first full-length album of original music in 2019, which has been heard on radio across the globe. The group is currently active performing at various venues across Canada in support of the new album. Recent highlights include appearances at The TD Toronto Jazz Festival, The Guelph Jazz Festival, Toronto’s Small World Music Festival and Princess Margaret Cancer Centre’s Jazz for the Soul Music Series.
