Tim Tamashiro is a jazz evangelist. 

He supports jazz artists throughout Canada and around the world and he participates as a singer. Tim was the host of Tonic on CBC Radio 2 for 10 years. He’s a passionate believer in jazz as the ultimate music education and he also believes that the spaces between songs are as important as the music. Stories matter. Stories can make songs even more compelling.

In 2018 Tim unveiled a new show called: 
When You’re Smiling
Frank, Dean & Sammy
Their Friendship. Their Songs. Their Stories 

Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr were the lead members of The Rat Pack; an informal group of entertainers centered on the Las Vegas casino scene in the 1960s.

When You’re Smiling is a celebration of their friendship. Their songs. Their stories. 

"When You’re Smiling is a lovely mix of stories and music, reminiscing and putting perspective on an era. Tim’s humor and ease at the microphone made for a wonderfully immersive audience experience. Everyone left feeling like they knew more than when they started, and with smiles on their faces."
-Brandi Wurtz, Artistic Director, Horizon Stage Performing Arts Centre

"Frank. Dean. Sammy - When You’re Smiling enveloped our audience in the music of the Rat Pack in every way. From little known quips about their history, they enjoyed the men behind the myth while singing along to the tunes that they knew and loved performed by one of Canada’s best, Tim Tamashiro. A great show!"
