5:30, 6:30 & 7:30 pm - After Hours

Musical performances by After Hours have always been about the tradition of street-corner singing. Whether you call it a cappella or doo-wop, it’s always been about taking the songs that they love, finding the inner harmonies and re-interpreting the music with only their voices.

8:05 pm - Jay Douglas & The All Stars

Jay Douglas first took to the stage in Montego Bay, Jamaica. With more than 45 years of showmanship, Douglas has developed a wide-ranging repertoire of American blues, West Indian rhythms, jazz standards, fancy footwork and plenty of stage charisma. In the early 60s, Douglas fronted the R&B band The Cougars and has since shared his musical talent at various venues from Hong Kong to the Mediterranean.

9:15 pm - Lula All Stars

This high energy salsa big band, led by Sean Bellaviti and Luis Orbegoso, delivers the very best from the Toronto venue Lula Lounge. Featuring top-flight vocalists and soloists backed by an A-list lineup, the band performs salsa compositions from their debut album "Salsa De La Buena."

10:15 pm - Fireworks Finale
