With the summer heat finally here, it comes along with a sizzle of New Orleans flame. Toronto’s Red Hot Ramble presented by Main & Market of Ridgetown, ignites the stage of The Mary Webb Centre June 21st. This group is without doubt imbued with red hot passion and they’ve been exceeding expectations with their colour of New Orleans jazz, blues, and funk on stages since 2010. Equal parts attitude, spirit, and charisma, with a whole lot of energy, Red Hot Ramble will surely close out the 2013/14 concert with style and a zesty southern taste of a funkier approach to New Orleans music. Their modern and infectious sound in addition to what is clearly a set of multi- talented folk with musical genius, has been leaving audiences captured and elated by way of their dynamic presence and musical excellence.
This stand-out ensemble of noteworthy talent is perfectly seasoned with the sultry vocals and rhythm of Roberta Hunt on piano, Toronto’s most sought after reed player, Alison Young, and the musical prowess of a Royal Conservatory of Music teacher earning his PhD, Trombonist Jamie Stager. Jack Zorawski on bass has a breadth of impressive experience and is not surprisingly in high-demand on the traditional jazz scene. The Toronto-born percussionist Glenn Anderson has been gaining his reputation for his hard swinging drumming, playing since his early teen years and making himself the first place drummer for numerous musicians and bands when he’s not heating up the stage with Red Hot Ramble. Considering their trail of new fans, The Mary Webb Centre is proud to have them close out the season and looks forward to having you join us.
