The Grammy Award-winning quartet joins forces with a hand-picked Toronto big band to blow the roof off Koerner Hall.

Throughout their storied 43-year history, the Yellowjackets have recorded 25 albums, received 17 Grammy Award nominations – won two – performed countless sold-out tours, and enjoyed worldwide critical acclaim and commercial success.

The Yellowjackets formed in the late 1970s as the backup band for guitarist Robben Ford. They recorded their first album together in 1980. Shortly after that recording, Ford decided to part ways and go in a different musical direction.

Since then, and with the addition of Bob Mintzer, the Yellowjackets have gained and maintained prominence as one of jazz’s most influential and loved groups
