Welcome to the site of Tunnel Six, a Canadian-American collective jazz sextet. We’ve been playing together since 2009 when we all met at the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada.
We had a great year in 2011 starting off with the release of our debut album “Lake Superior” on OA2 records (see link in right sidebar!) and an accompanying Western Canada tour with performances in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria, Gibsons, and Roberts Creek. We even had some legitimate band photos taken in the Sunshine Coast (see above!)
We traveled out to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in July to perform at the Halifax Jazz Festival and the Wreckhouse International Jazz and Blues Festival in St. John’s, NL. It was many of our first times out in Eastern Canada and we had a wonderful time.
We’ve also gotten some attention in the past month on several end-of-year lists from emusic (right ahead of Brittany Spears!) and All About Jazz. Several more publications have reviewed our album including All Music Guide, Cadence, and a full review at emusic as well.
Thanks to everyone for your support and we’re really looking forward to lots of good music in 2012, we’re planning a western Canada tour which will also reach down into Washington and Oregon and hopefully a fall tour in Ontario as well! You can always find us over at Facebook as well. Cheers and happy new year to everyone.
