Back out for some Canadian Music Week music goodness last night – this time, at Toronto’s iconic music venue the Silver Dollar Room for blueVenus.
blueVenus brings pop that rocks – punched up with a bit of funk, Motown, blues and jazz – and they moved us with selections from CDs Grin and the recent Comfortably Numb, and a taste of the record to come. You must see blueVenus live.
Andrea de Boer is the songwriting and vocal force behind blueVenus, and her most excellent band at the Silver Dollar Room last night included: Jessica Stuart (guitar/backup vocals), Iva Valent (keys/back up vocals), D’arcy McGuire (bass) and Matt DeMatteo (drums).
Check out the video that Kimberly Mallett shot of blueVenus performing “Grin.”
