The Muddy York Blues Machine
The Muddy York Blues Machine is a “new blues” band based in Toronto, Canada. With diverse musical backgrounds and influences, the Machine promises its music will be emotionally powerful, well performed, and always played with passion. From the muddy streets of old Toronto to the sky-scraping metropolis it has become, long live the blues.
Jim Dan Dee
The name Jim Dan Dee comes from the expression “Everything is just Jim Dandy”, an old cliché often used with expletives inserted. Toronto-based Jim Dan Dee (affectionately known as ‘J.D.D.’ by their fans) is not only a blues band, but also a character; an idea that embodies the spirit of the music and Jim Stefanuk’s frontman persona. On stage Jim’s intensity is like a man possessed, his soulful baritone voice juxtaposed against cutting vintage guitar tones. Tying the melodies together is the silky-smooth saxophone of Bobby Sewerynek, veteran horn player and former big-band sessionist. The backbeat is solidly held down by Brian McCarthy’s growling bass lines and Shawn Royal’s unmistakably solid meter and slick groove. When you see Jim Dan Dee, you get it, and their electric energy on-stage will leave you craving more. Jim Dan Dee’s self-titled inaugural album was released on October 19 2018. This collection of songs clearly portrays the evolution of JDD’s signature sound, featuring 11 gritty, bluesy and soulful tracks that walk the line between classic blues and modern blues-rock. This album gives you their signature “bourbon fueled motown blues” sound from start to finish.
