The 26th Annual Women’s Blues Revue is coming up in a week’s time and all of my girlfriend’s ( a man can dream can’t he?) will be performing at one of Toronto’s finest musical venues, Massey Hall. This place has amazing sound, the acoustics are fantastic! Esp. for Da Blues!
One of the featured vocalist’s this year is Saidah Baba Talibah, whom I had the great fortune to hear and photograph at this past summer’s Toronto Jazz Festival; she opened up for Trombone Shorty on the Mainstage at Nathan Phillips Square. That was an awesome show! Great energy. Great band.
Also featured vocalist’s for this year’s revue are, Sabrina Weeks, Angel Forrest, Kellylee Evans, Tanika Charles & Sacha Williamson.
Keeping it all together will be the Women’s Blues Revue band, directed by guitarist Donna Grantis. I’ve seen Donna play several times, from the Rex Hotel, Beaches Jazz, Toronto Jazz, the Cameron. A local guitar heroine, amazing player, always with the nice PRS guitars, which are amazing, btw.
