Summer & The Sinners
Friday, November 23rd, 2012
From Texas to New Orleans, to Chicago, with a stop in Memphis, Summer and the Sinners take you on a musical tour of Blues, R&B, and Funk. Sliding easily between, “Stax” and “Straight Texas Boogie.” With a great choice of songs, Line-up of musicians, and Summers Voice…you know you’ve got something special! The new album "Boogie With The Devil" is certain to raise the stature of both Summer and her Sinners. Hot on the heels of "Stranger's Blues", Summer and the Sinner's have produced another great one! Summer's voice has matured deliciously over the last couple of years, I'm reminded of Etta James,Bonnie Raitt, and Ruthie Foster all at once!!" Big-voiced Summer and her band, the Sinners, are a definite "cool breeze" from the Great White North! Based in British Columbia, Summer and the Sinners pound out a brand of blues that took us back to our beginnings of listening to the blues, back in the early Seventies. Summer can really get one's attention with that sly, sexy, sultry growl in her delivery. Backed by some of the westcoast's finest... these guys will give you that "old-school" feel for the days of Mike Bloomfield or Janis Joplin and Big Brother. It was a sweltering 104 in the shade the day that Summer was born north of the Bay area California. Her name is the result of that particular heat wave. By the time she settled in Victoria, she possessed a firm grasp of turning out a song with her own trademark sound. Audiences immediately took to Summer’s hard hitting blues - the kind that betray her somewhat shy exterior. It is this combination of guts and vulnerablity that is so engaging. Summer is an exciting new voice on the scene. And she is finding her way!
