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.
