My World Jazz Group Barnes & Woldemichael return to Hirut Cafe on Thursday May 17th! Authentic Ethiopian cuisine and Ethio-Jazz make this venue in Toronto’s East end our home! Follow Daniel Barnes Music on Facebook for pics and posts, and subscribe to my newsletter below.

This month I’m also backing pianist Concetta Donato from Italy, American actor John O’Hurley, Canada’s sweetheart of swing Alex Pangman, “Jazz of the America’s” with Don Naduriak and sitting in the house band for the Jazz Showcase at the Canadian Music Week conference.

Subscribe to my newsletter for more details! See pics and posts at Daniel Barnes Music on Facebook and Instagram!

I play Gretsch Drums and Murat Diril Cymbals and use Headhunter Sticks and Cretions exclusively!
