S.M.V. Thunder Tour - Wednesday, August 20, 2008
Tickets on sale Friday, June 27


Toronto – Three of the most electrifying bass guitar players of our time strike Toronto with the Thunder Tour for one night only on Wednesday, August 20 at the Sound Academy, 8pm.

Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller and Victor Wooten, the perfect formula of creativity, genius and sheer talent share one stage for a show-stopping performance of jazz and funk this summer. The Thunder Tour is in support of the trio's upcoming release, Thunder.

"We have presented all three of these artists individually in the past. Bringing the Thunder Tour to Toronto was an easy decision for us," states Patrick Taylor, Executive Producer of Toronto Downtown Jazz. "This is the only Canadian stop on the tour, making it a performance not to be missed."

Together, Stanley, Marcus and Victor pack the most powerful one-two-three punch: Grammy Award-winner Stanley Clarke has influenced the role of the bass in music today, and is known as the father of the 1970s "bass revolution." Marcus Miller has appeared on more than 400 records and has played with a variety of artists, from Miles Davis and Aretha Franklin to Jay Z and LL Cool J. Member of the Grammy Award-winning super group Béla Fleck & The Flecktones, Victor Wooten is considered to be the most influential bassist since the late Jaco Pastorius.
