CHERYL LESCOM has been part of the Canadian Blues Scene for over 30 years. Starting off as a back up singer for Ronnie Hawkins and Long John Baldry, Cheryl has recorded, toured and performed with the likes of Jeff Healy, Matt Minglewood, Dutch Mason the Downchild Blues Band and more.

The Tucson Choir Boys were formed in 2004 as a side project by two members of Loco Zydeco, one of Canada’s premier Zydeco bands.
Featuring Dave the Cat (lead guitar & lead vocals) and Sameday Ray (acoustic guitar & vocals,) they have since been wowing audiences across Ontario with their fiery brand of acoustic and semi-acoustic Rockabilly, Roots and the Blues. In 2008, TCB joined forces with Canadian Blues Legend and at the time label mate, Cheryl Lescom. Together, in 2009 they released Cheryl Lescom & the Tucson Choir Boys – a mix of acoustic Blues, Roots & Pop – to critical acclaim. In 2010, fellow Loco Zydeco members Les Graham (acoustic bass & vocals) and Kristine KK Walsh (rubboard & percussion) began performing with the Tucson Choir Boys and, along with Kitchener-based acoustic guitar wizard Robert Reid, have formed what has affectionately become known as the Tucson Choir Boys Orchestra. They released their debut, seven song EP, simply called Tucson Choir Boys, in November, 2016 with Squirrel Head Music. Both the Tucson Choir Boys and the Tucson Choir Boys Orchestra continue to record and perform with Cheryl Lescom and released their second full length album together in 2015, on Busted Flat Records.

Little Magic Sam Band
Nov 26 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Fusing blues, soul, and pop, Little Magic Sam brings a unique and diverse sound to the scene. A talented lyricist, his songs reveal emotional complexity not expected from a man of his generation. His stage presence captivates audiences young and old, as he pours his heart and soul into each note on his guitar.

When the world gets down on Little Magic Sam, he gets down on a Les Paul. Hailing from St.Thomas, ON, Sam Taylor is a born entertainer with a penchant for raw blues music, and lyrics that bely someone much older than his 27 years. With an enormous stage presence, it comes as no surprise that this multi-talented singer/songwriter has been performing internationally since the age of 7.

After graduating from Fanshawe College with a diploma in Music Industry Arts, Sam headed into EMAC Studios with producer Moe Berg (of Pursuit of Happiness) on two original songs; Thought of Leaving and Loaded Gun, both of which received airplay across Southern Ontario. Loaded Gun has also been featured in the tv shows Haven, Cracked, and Degrassi. Sam’s versatile and honest songwriting gives his music the emotional edge that sets him apart as a talented up and comer. His songwriting can be heard on his collaborations with other Canadian recording artists, the most notable being Chad Price. He has also shared the stage with Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones), Gordon Lightfoot, and Whitehorse.

Little Magic Sam was thrilled to get the opportunity to record what would become his debut E.P. at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. Look for Little Magic Sam’s new E.P. on all major music platforms, CD and limited edition vinyl as of February 21st, 2019.

“Sam is a unique artist who digs deep into the Blues and into the listener’s emotions. i can’t say enough about my admiration for his music” – Robbie Lane , Zoomer Radio
