The Crooked Brothers

After months on the road, The Crooked Brothers threw a homecoming party at the West End Cultural Centre a couple Fridays ago.  Oh, and they also were celebrating the release of their new album: “Thank You I’m Sorry.”  Take it from me, you should check it out: it’s streaming here.…

Delhi 2 Dublin

Delhi 2 Dublin at the West End Cultural Center, Winnipeg MB.  The band brought a great energy to the stage that was infectious, this show was fun.  When the crowd started demanding an encore by stomping on the floor, I honestly wondered if the floor was going to give.

This was one of the last shows they played before a few key members moved away, but I’m willing to bet there will be a few reunion shows yet.

Maiko Watson w/ Moses Mayes

I managed to fit a shoot in for Maiko Watson w/ Moses Mayes at The Pyramid amidst a busy schedule, and am I ever glad I did.  This was the first time she had popped up on my radar and I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Let me say this: being at one of Maiko’s shows is like taking a trip in time back to the golden age of funk and soul music.  She is a modern day Aretha Franklin!  If you do happen to be in the right place at the right time and get the opportunity to see her perform, don’t hesitate…
