For­mer UMFM host and MAD­FOM stu­dent (that’s Mar­cel A. Desau­tels Fac­ul­ty of Music for those who don’t lis­ten to the pro­gram pro­duced by music stu­dents here at the U of M on Sun­days) Christo­pher Butch­er relo­cat­ed to Toron­to and helped form Heavy­weights Brass Band. The group has earned copi­ous amounts of buzz and praise and even a nod from famed tastemaker/​DJ Gilles Peter­son who includ­ed them on his Havana Cul­tura com­pi­la­tion. In town to play the 2012 TD Win­nipeg Inter­na­tion­al Jazz Fes­ti­val, HBB dropped by the stu­dio on the heels of a set at Old Mar­ket Square and blazed through three hot originals.
