Ginger Soul Sings the Blues
“Tamica Herod, aka “Ginger” is less about her red hair, and more about Tamica Herod’s Blues. The blues of the red headed stepchild, the soul on fire. In the tradition of red headed chanteuses who sang before her, Tamica’s Janis Joplin comes with a side order of Bessie Smith, and her Bonnie Raitt comes with a dash of Etta James” – Sean Cotton
“Versatility is Tamica’s middle name. Blues, R+B, Funk, Soul and Rock and Roll hits from yesterday and today, she delivers them all at 150%… a force to be reckoned with!” – Steve Grisbrook
“An engaging and gutsy performer – as beautiful to see as she is to hear, Tamica rocks the house with an unapologetic “Wham bam, thank you ma’am!
“In a word: Unforgettable”
Donnie Meeker & The Fish Bar House Band
Donnie was famous in the 70’s as the singer for the Toronto RnB and Rock Band “Sweet Blindness” based in the Mimico, Long Branch area of Toronto. He also used to do a Tribute to the Blues Brothers with his brother “Dirty Bertie”, while going under the assumed name of “Downtown Donnie”. They were a soft-shoe, hard rockin’ group in the 80’s and have been known to occasionally re-surface in venues around south eastern Toronto to this day.
