Red Rain

It began in the spring of 1985 as a five piece rock outfit playing mostly original songs. The players in this Toronto band came from a variety of musical backgrounds, spanning hard rock, reggae, folk, country and blues influences. Three of the current four members have been together since that time, and the sound has coalesced into a strong blues/r'n'b - based groove, overlayed with expressive melody and harmony vocal lines. Using the Delta as a jumping-off point, Red Rain produces new music with a strong personality. Even to covers (running from John Hiatt to Howlin' Wolf, Van Morrison, Junior Parker, Ray Charles and The Band) are delivered in a way that reflects the musical sense of Red Rain rather than merely duplicating the originals - still, great songs which make an immediate connection with the audience.

The band's mission is to take the gospel to places where it is rarely heard. Red Rain has participated in many concerts in local bars, parks, on university campuses, and in jails.
