This funky lady with her whiskey/honey voice has been here frequently. Laura Hubert sang for twenty-five years at Grossmans in Toronto, and now the Rex, and Inter Steer have adopted her for weekly residency. We are so pleased she keeps coming back with her humour, her stories and her barroom soulful vocals. She stretches from “Angel from Montgomery” to “Memphis in June”. Laura always sells out, book soon! ALISON YOUNG TRIO Sunday January 20 Alison Young: Sax and Vocals Stacie MacGregor: Piano Lauren Falls: Bass Red-Headed Sass! Alison Young has earned her stripes and has been sideman in many established bands; Heillig Maneuver, Collin Hunter, etc. Now it’s Alison’s turn. She has a storming Trio that shares her love of funk and straight ahead jazz tunes as well as singing some good old Standards and R and B. You will have a blast tonight, guaranteed. Alison, Stacie and Lauren are busy with the Toronto club circuit, so we are pleased to be able to present them to you. RITA DI GHENT AND BRIAN LEGERE Sunday January 27 Rita di Ghent: Piano, Voice, Bass Brian Legere: Guitar, Vocals Rita’s home from Copenhagen! These two musical souls met in Prince Edward County and formed a bond. They both call Picton home even though they tour and perform elsewhere. Brian and Rita have worked up a repertoire over the years that encompasses jazz standards and originals. Both are singer/songwriters and Brian plays guitar, Rita plays bass and piano (not at the same time)!!! This will be fun! “Beautiful mezzo voice that really swings”. - New York Times THE WOMEN OF JAZZ! These Dames will warm your soul!
