Win a pair of tickets to hear A Rat Pack Kinda night at BDT

Michael Pytura  ©2013 Brett DelmageYou could win a pair of tickets to hear A Rat Pack Kinda night (Une Soirée Rat Pack) with Michael Pytura at Les Brasseurs du Temps on Tuesday, November 25 at 7:30 p.m. (19h30). Two pairs of tickets have been generously donated by Michael Pytura.

Last fall he entertained hundreds of people at Make-a-Wish Canada's annual gala with his singing tribute to the Rat Pack group of singers including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. Their appeal to him was “both from a musical point of view but even just from the type of humour they bring to the table”.

He returns this year with a more intimate performance at BDT to perform some classic favourites. He'll be joined by some of Ottawa's solidly swinging jazz musicians: pianist Ian Clyne, saxophnist Mike Tremblay, bassist Martin Newman and drummer Jeff Asselin.

The deadline to enter the contest to win these two tickets is Monday, November, 24, 2014 at 1 p.m.. To enter, simply email

Won! Tickets to see Whiplash at the Bytowne Cinema

Congratulations to Michael Braden, who won a pair of tickets to attend the screening of his choice for Whiplash at the Bytowne Cinema and also receive a CD of the soundtrack. The tickets and CD were generously donated by the Bytowne Cinema.

"J.K. Simmons plays Terrence Fletcher, a jazz band leader at a top New York conservatoire. Miles Teller is Andrew, a gifted drummer dragged into Fletcher’s inner circle. But this is not cool jazz that Fletcher is teaching."

Whiplash received a very respectable rating of 8.7 on IMDb

The answer to our skill-testing question, "What notable jazz musician does Fletcher tell his students about ?" was Charlie Parker.
