About The Event
Get ready for an afternoon of dancing!
A sought-after musician in the Ontario music scene, Roberta Hunt's personal and exuberant approach to performance has now mixed with the swing/Lindy dance scene resulting in sizzling energy between dancers and the band that electrifies the audience. Roberta’s current jazz, blues, funk collaboration Red Hot Ramble has been stirring up great buzz with frequent performances at live music landmarks like The Rex Hotel, Reservoir Lounge, Dovercourt House, and The Lancaster Jazz Club in Kitchener.
In addition to performing solo and with her own bands (Red Hot Ramble, Bertie and the Gents, Roberta Hunt Trio) in Toronto, Roberta has also participated in the French Quarter Festival New Orleans; Davos Sounds Good Festival, Davos; Rapperswil Jazz Festival, Switzerland; Jazz in Mortigliano, Italy as well as local jazz festivals over her career. The New Orleans influence began early in Roberta’s career when she joined the legendary Toronto New Orleans band “Kid Bastien’s Happy Pals” and held the piano post until 2009.
