Lance is world renowned as a composer, producer, arranger and band leader. His passion, he admits, is for his Hammond B3 organ. Joining Lance for the salute to Ray Charles’ music is Michael Sloski, Canada’s pre-eminent roots drummer, a Maple Blues Award nominee and someone who has played with artists such as Bruce Cockburn and Mary Margaret O’Hara. John Mays, Shakura S’Aida, Jesse O’Brien and Al Lerman complete the band for our Friday tribute show. John is the lead singer of the Juno award winning band Fathead and has established himself as a premier soul and blues singer. Shakura is a powerhouse vocalist with a spectacular range. Al, who plays sax and harmonica with Fathead, joins this ensemble for an incredible show that features such songs as I’ve Got a Woman, Georgia, What’d I Say, Hit the Road Jack and many others.
