Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

As the final event to "Destination Rosseau", a successful summer long integrated festival of the arts, the Rosseau Culture and Arts Project is hosting "Get Jazzed...Concerts For the Universal Soul" on September 19 & 20th at Grand Tappattoo Resort on Otter Lake, ten minutes south of Parry Sound. A portion of the net profits is going towards the Central Monitoring System for the Parry Sound Health Centre's ICU which was temporarily closed for 12 days in April when the system crashed and could not be re-booted. The cost to replace is $440,000.

Just in time to say goodbye to summer and hello autumn, the weekend will feature both regionally and nationally known musicians. On Friday, September 19 at 8:00 PM, it's an upbeat lively presentation with well-known Muskoka saxophonist Mitch Beube who will present "Mitch's Funk and Jazz Lounge Lizards". Joining him for the evening is Amanda McLeod on keyboard and vocals, Omar Gittens on drums and award-winning recording artist and composer, bass player Stu Steinhart.

During the day, Rosseau's own jazz rock/fusion recording artist Dean Watson entertains over the cocktail hour. Then on Saturday night, the mood switches to the casual, smooth style of vocalist/drummer Jim Gelcer. Jim has been called "a hidden jewel in the Canadian jazz landscape." Accompanying him for the evening is one of the most versatile guitarists in Canada, head of the Humber College Guitar Department, Ted Quinlan. In addition, bass player Russ Boswell and the multi-talented, vocalist/saxophonist/flautist Carrie Chesnutt joins the session.

For such great talent tickets are very reasonable! Friday night just $20, Saturday $35 and a combination is $45. A two-night, meals included, room and concert ticket package is only $479 for two. From the organization that produced this summer's Muskoka Independent Film Festival, Muskoka Theatre Project, Comedy Night with Derek Seguin, "Get Jazzed" is the perfect way to end the season and support a great cause.
