In late 1992, Alittle Voodoo began playing all over western Canada. By 1993 they recorded their first live CD over three rockin’ nights in Banff’s Legendary club the Rose and Crown. In 1994, Alittle Voodoo began touring with blues/rock acts: Colin James, the late Jeff Healey, The Headstones, Paul Rodgers, Long John Baldry, David Gogo, Omar and the Howlers, Bo Diddley and a host of others. Alittle Voodoo is led by frontman and guitar mauler, Ron Burke. Likened to Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnny Winters, and a few others. Ron’s barrelhouse vocals partnered with his steamroller guitar playing won’t let you believe you are hearing a 3 piece band. In 1994, the band was recognized with Best Band of the Year, with Ron also taking the honours as Best Male Vocalist and Best Guitar Player at the CJ92 awards.
Bassist Tom Knowles who began playing with the late, great Long John Baldry has also shared the stage with other music legends such as Jimmy Page, Tom Jones, Crowbar, Kathi McDonald,and Blue Cheer.

Rob Vulic fills out the trio on drums and the multiple Juno winning producer and co-writer of much of the latest album, Russell Broom joins the band every chance he can!
Recently they headlined a fund raising gig to save the Blues Can venue in Calgary.

Article re. Live at Studio 64 fall season, 2021, from Mike Redfern

Live music returns to Studio 64

The relaxation of Covid 19 restrictions in the province means that in September the ‘Live at Studio 64’ fall concert season will be truly live once again. However, the number of tickets available for each concert will be limited to comply with current BC pandemic regulations so ‘purchase them early’ would seem to be good advice. I understand that there may be only 50 tickets available for the first concert in the series.

Kicking off this fall season on Saturday, September 25, will be Ron Burke and Alittle Voodoo, the 4-piece blues ensemble from Calgary that performed at Studio 64 back in 2015 to such an enthusiastic reception. Alittle Voodoo has toured North America with many of the greatest blues headline artists including Bo Diddley, Colin James, Geoff Healey, and Long John Baldry.

Alittle Voodoo will be followed on Friday, October 22, by Victoria’s internationally acclaimed and award-winning Marc Atkinson Trio, who will perform their particular flavor of acoustic gypsy jazz accompanied by virtuoso violinist Cameron Wilson. The Juno-nominated Atkinson is widely considered to be one of Canada’s finest acoustic guitarists.

Rounding out the fall series will be Gordie Tentrees from the Yukon, scheduled for either Friday, November 26, or Saturday, November 27. I’ve heard Tentrees described as ‘a one-man band with two people’. Make of that what you will. He plays folk/blues using as many as 10 different instruments, accompanied by his sidekick, Jaxon Holdane, on as many more. Tentrees has toured the UK and Europe, North America and Australia and put out seven albums to date.

Due to the reduced audience size, thus reduced ticket revenue, there has been a slight rise in admission prices. Still a tremendous bargain at $33 per show, with a $3 discount for members of Kimberley Art Council, or $90 for the three concert series, $80 for arts council members. Tickets will only be available online at kimberleyarts.com, no tickets at the door. So, as I suggested earlier, don’t hang about if you want to get in on these three live performances by three great bands.
