Jazz crooner Randy Lyght is launching his new CD, Return To Romance, February 13th in Kitchener, Ontario. But there's a lot more to his musical story than just a Valentine's Day theme!
Read on to discover the HEART of the matter!
Thunder Bay native Randy Lyght has been a part of the Canadian music scene for quite some time. He's headed his own bands and worked under the direction of such greats as Jackie Richardson. However touring (10 different countries!) takes its toll and Randy chose to take a break and focus on his family. A few years ago Randy was encouraged to return to music in a big way with 2 CDs in 2 years, both receiving a lot of airplay, both here and abroad.
But for his tertiary album, Randy Lyght wanted to do something close to his HEART
Randy decided to raise funds for the heart and stroke foundation. He created a donation page (click here to donate) but felt that just wasn't enough. So he hit the studio and recorded "A Return To Romance". During 2014, $1 from every CD sold will go to The Heart and Stroke Foundation
But once again, that just was't enough!
Randy set out to create the most "heart appropriate" fundraising event he could think of. A night to celebrate love. A Valentine's Day show, featuring "Return to Romance"
Randy has assembled a wonderful quintet featuring featuring Joel Haynes, JK Gulley, Andriy Tykhonov, Ken Hadley and Clark Johnston, all under the musical direction of Andriy.
Together they will bring to life some of the best loved romantic jazz standards, and throw in some Gershwin, Hammerstein, Porter and more!
Proceeds from the night go directly to The Heart and Stroke Foundation.
So if you're in the Kitchener area and looking for a way to celebrate "Happy Hearts Day", what better way than with Randy, his band and "A Return to Romance"!
Your heart will thank you!
