June 28 w Sweet Derrick @ Gate 403 on Roncesvalles, 9pm
Sweet Derrick is a blues singer who style draws on B.B. King and other greats. He’s formerly worked with drummers Bucky Berger of Phathead and Mike Brushey. The guitarist, Fraser Melvin, is an accomplished artist in his own right with strong vocals and killer leads. The band is rounded out by bassist Bruce Griffin whom I met while doing Mondays @ Harlem with Carolyn T. Gate 403 is one of Toronto’s best known jazz venues and I’m happy to be playing there again!
