JV's Boogaloo Squad - Going to Market Canadian New

Going to Market was released February 15, 2019

JV's Boogaloo Squad is:
Joel Visentin - Organ
Adam Beer-Colacino - Guitar
Jeff Halischuk - Drums

JV's Boogaloo Squad makes their Ottawa debut as part of their "Going to Market" album release tour.

Winnipeg native and in-demand Toronto keyboardist Joel Visentin, joined up in with guitarist Adam Beer-Colacino and drummer Jeff Halischuk to form JV’s Boogaloo Squad. The musical connection was electric and immediately all three recognized that they had stumbled on something greater than the sum of its parts. They have since worked their way up the club circuit in Toronto, becoming a regular fixture at The Rex, as well as playing festivals like the Markham Jazz Festival and the TD Toronto Jazz Festival. In Markham, they had the great fortune of playing before living Jazz Organ Legend Dr. Lonnie Smith. The group crafts a soulful sound that is simultaneously lost in the thrill of the moment while evoking a timeless musical nostalgia.
