Featuring the Gleneagles Elementary School Children’s Choir.

The Nylons are celebrating their JUNO nomination for BEST JAZZ VOCAL ALBUM for their 15th release Skin Tight. The CD features an eclectic collection of jazz standards, original songs and well known classics. With seven gold and platinum recordings, this four-member vocal group is one of Canadaʼs top international success stories.

From their formation in the back of a delicatessen in Toronto in the late 1970s to headlining at Carnegie Hall, The Nylons have a storied history. Their first album went gold in only two months and eventually went on to become a Canadian platinum seller with big hits Up The Ladder To The Roof and The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

The second album, One Size Fits All, was successfully distributed in the U.S. and became the foundation for their increasing fan base in that country leading to constant touring on both sides of the border. A gold disc for the One Size Fits All album in Holland opened up the European market for the group. The Nylons have received numerous awards and accolades including their gold and platinum records, a Tokyo Music Festival award, and a Canadian Juno.

The Nylons are renowned for their vibrant live shows, featuring dazzling harmonies, smooth arrangements, tight choreography, and fabulous showmanship. Their rapport with their audiences makes them perennial favorites for all age groups. The Nylons continue to perform worldwide to passionate audiences and critical acclaim.
