Kitchener Blues Festival

July 16th, 2009 by hills

Well I just got a call from my good friend Cheryl Lescom and It looks like we will be playing August 8th at 2:00 or 2:30pm at one of the smaller stages. I have been told that it is called The Tri-cities stage.

Lee and I will perform with the Dobro and harp and may even persuade Wally to come out!

We could use a break from the studio anyways. Hope to see you there and don’t forget to catch Cheryl and pick up her new CD.

If you would like a copy of Living The Blues we have limited suplies left.

Cheers Blasters

A Rock And A Hard Place

May 25th, 2009 by hills

Shows are just gonna have to wait. The jamblasters have found themselves lost in the writing of the new CD. Like they say strike while the iron’s hot. We were hoping to be gigging this month but we find ourselves behind the 8 ball. Lee and Hills have a group of 20 songs we were going to choose from but some opportunities have knocked along with some input from Wally. Hills has decided that a trip to northern Canada a fishing pole and a flat top on the cabin porch is what the doctor would order. There is nothing like wind rushing through hemlocks to inspire, and help make the decision making a little easier. Lee has written a song in which we will incorporate the wonderful voice of Janey Neal. If all works out the track will be included on the next CD.

Cheers Blasters

Jamblasters and Simply Fine Wine

April 10th, 2009 by hills

April 5,2009

Wally, Riley, Peter, and Hills sat in and played music for the Simply Fine Wine anniversary. The Jamblasters shared the floor with Cair, a wonderful talent both vocally and playing the piano, Michel, a wonderful talent on the guitar.  Also joining the festivities was  Rob, a Simply Fine Wine Maker who came to strap on a guitar and sing a couple of cover songs, which he made unique by putting his own style to.

Thanks Peter and Patti we all enjoyed the wine and cheese and meeting your clientele.

Cheers The Jamblasters

NEW YEARS EVENT

January 2nd, 2009 by hills

The JAMBLASTERS had a private party over the new year and brought 2009 in with a popping of the champaign cork! Ralph opened the doors to our invite only event. Peg, Michelle and others put together wonderful finger foods! This was the first public appearance of sorts with THE JAMBLASTERS new line up. I am getting very excited for sure! The band sounded fantastic!
We are planning to do a photo shoot soon so that we can show off the new talent so to speak.

Anyways we hope this post finds everyone in good health and that everyone has the best year ever!

Cheers Hills

December 25th, 2008 by hills

Riley and I have decided to write a Christmas tune that depicts the mood for many Canadian families this year. The struggle’s are felt all over our big beautiful country,even worse the world. We would like to ask everyone to lend an ear! The tune is posted at our Garageband account.
