Every Friday night during the summer of 2020, OTOB owners played socially distanced live jazz music for diners on Ascari’s patio. This was our way of playing live music and shining some light in Leslieville during the lockdown. We were featured in the Toronto Star on Monday, September 7th! Check out page 3 of the Toronto Star with Steve Russell’s “Through the Lens” series.
Quotes from music lovers:
“Thank you for doing this – I’ve forgotten what live music sounded like!”
“Thank you – the music made life seem normal again!”
Carissa Neufeld – piano/vibraphone
