Jazz band Maz comes to Golden

Maz has a unique blend of acoustic, traditional music, which the Quebec quartet combines with a contemporary, electrified jazz.

Maz will headline the next Summer Kicks show on Wednesday July 13.

Maz, headlining this week’s Summer Kicks stage, will treat the audience to its unique blend of acoustic, traditional music, which the Quebec quartet combines with a contemporary, electrified jazz.

Maz’s origins go back to February 2007, when Marc Maziade (composition and guitar) was given a carte blanche to create a musical project for the Festival Ste-Rose en Blanc. He put together a show called Projet Trad, a group that continued to get together for various projects over the next couple years. In 2009 Maz was officially established, and in 2011 their first album was released.

Now they have 13 nominations to their credit, including one Juno nomination for best instrumental album, and have set themselves apart on the touring scene.

They have been praised by audiences and critics alike for having a vibrant stage energy, which Golden can see on Wednesday July 13 at 7 p.m. at the Golden Civic Centre.
