Charlie Biddle

Remembered as the father of the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Charles Biddle lent his name to the club that kept the groove going year-round.  Biddles, now known as The House of Jazz, was a draw for jazz stars and fans, from around the world.  Charles Biddle was made a member of the Order of Canada in 2003.  The Saint Jean Baptiste Society said, ‘without him, Quebecers might not have developed their love for jazz’.

    An extremely important figure in the Montreal, Quebec and Canadian world of arts.
    May his legacy live on.

    • Thank you Tracy, we appreciate your comment!
      Well his legacy does live on in our hearts for sure but also through my opening of a new live music venu in old Montreal called Biddlesjr.
      Please drop by to listen to some jazz and have a bite of our southern inspired cuisine!
      Best regards
