Matt Migliazza, a local performer, producer, and DJ, has partnered up with Friends Of The Thunder Bay Conservatory and together they are holding an event called Green House, showcasing local DJ’s in the atmospheric botanical setting that is the Thunder Bay Centennial Botanical Conservatory.

Migliazza, artistically known as Matt Migz, will be joined by DJs Aticka (Caitlin Herman) and Jader Ag (Jader Agnolin) at Green House, taking place on January 21 from noon to 4 pm. Migliazza says that he grew up visiting the conservatory, and can recall many fond memories surrounding the space. He has been eager to hold an event in the space for quite some time, but struggled with incorporating his passion of performing.

“Events like this are a great way to get people out of the house and acquainted with the conservatory as well as new artists,” says Migliazza. In the past, Friends of The Thunder Bay Conservatory has held events with musical stylings from from local performers such as Kyle Shushak, Lucanus Pell, Steph Skavinski, and many more. Ranging from classical, acoustic, and folk sounds, Green House will be the first event of its nature held at conservatory, with house music variations capturing “indie tropical sounds.”

“January gets cold and everyone is winding down from Christmas. We just wanted to give people a bit of a sensory getaway with some tropical vibes,” explains Migliazza. Green House will be an afternoon where people from the community can escape from the cold and enjoy the music by Matt Migz, Aticka, and Jader Ag performing their best summer sounds.

Green House is taking place at The Centennial Botanical Conservatory (1601 Dease Street W) on January 21 from noon-4 pm. Admission is free.
