THE BLAZERS - "RED HOT ROCKIN' RHYTHM & BLUES" with infectiously Funky grooves that straddle the line where Rhythm & Blues meet Rock with exuberance that's impossible to resist!***

***"High level band with a huge experience along Canadian Blues circles. They fluently perform an excellent effective mixture of blues, rhythm and blues, funk, swing, rockabilly and rock...The arrangements of the original covers have got great quality with a cool lush sound...a solid band with a powerful guitar sound and an delightful daring vibrato. Josh Gordon guitar solos have a personal stamp with very close Texan references which give them a straight charisma, something not very usual among many actual guitar players. Toronto musical scene can be proud of that excellent band. ***LA HORA BLUES (Jul, 2007)***

"Really good guitar work...One of your better vocals with some nice vibrato. Good intensity.”****- Bruce Iglauer, President of Alligator Records in Chicago, IL (July 2007)

"Unfamiliar with the band and their music, I had no idea what lay ahead. The boys blew me away! Turns out, they are another immensely talented compilation of Toronto area musicians forming a one of a kind blend of rockin’ blues band.""Sets consisting of kick-ass originals flowed fluently with their fiery, soulful deliverance of traditional blues and classic rock covers. Original rockin’ blues reminded me of the unique musical blend of none other that Jack de Keyzer. Not bad for a relatively youthful, new band. What really catches one’s eye is the amazing chemistry these four musicians possess creating an electrifying energy that reaches the depths of one's heart and soul." Diane Goldsmith ***- P.A. Blue Star Records (Jun, 2006)***
