Drummer-promoter Jon Long and his Danforth Jam events have been practically synonymous with the Black Swan Tavern at 154 Danforth Ave. near Broadview for years.
Even though Jon was out of action for a couple of years, now that he’s back it seems like he’s making up for lost time by putting on all kinds of shows there (as well as in other rooms of late).
In addition to his biweekly Sat. afternoon jam events at the Swan (the next one is July 20) he’s also been sponsoring showcase nights there. The latest one goes tonight as his jam band backs R&B/Rock singer Alana Truda Edwards for a show, followed by the trademark after-show jam starting at 11:30ish. 17
