Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi (Southern Supper)- Friday, September 13, 2019

Danny Brooks has long been referred to as ‘The Real Deal’ and after years of honing his writing and performing skills in Canada, picking up nominations and awards along the way, Brooks is at home in the Texas music scene and traveling throughout the USA. Mixing Southern Soul, Americana, Blues and Gospel, he is recognized as a prolific writer and dynamic live performer, and is constantly on the road. Making Llano Texas his home (just west of Austin), 'Texassippi Soul Man' Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi released their second ‘Texas’ studio recording ‘This World Is Not Your Friend’, in January of 2015. The upcoming CD "Get Your Joy On" will be much like the previous CD with a ‘stripped down’ approach. Brooks' music features the duo he has with his wife Lil Miss Debi who sings and plays cajon/percussion while he plays assorted guitars/slide/cigar-box/stomp-board and harp-rack.

Brooks has worked with Legendary producers Jim Dickinson on ‘Its A Southern Thing’ which received high praise from Cub Coda (Smokin’ In The Boy Room/All Music Guide), Johnny Sandlin, (Capricorn Records Producer) on ‘No Easy Way Out’, that featured the legendary Muscle Shoals musicians David Hood, Spooner Oldham, Bonnie Bramlett. Frazer Mohawk (Elektra) and bassist Tim Drummond (Bob Dylan/Neil Young/James Brown) referred to Brooks as the real deal on NorthernBlues recording ‘Saved! The NorthernBlues Gospel Allstars’. On the first two Soulsville recordings, Brooks credits Richard Bell, (Janice Joplin/The Band/Colin Linden) who produced and played keyboards as preparing him for the world stage. It should be noted that Louis X. Erlanger (Mink DeVille guitartist) produced "Texassippi Soul Man".

'Texassippi Soul Man' Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi have been touring constantly, promoting and building their reputation throughout North America. As a duo, they make a good racket on assorted guitars/stomp-board/harp-rack/cajon/percussion and singing with all their might, with an Elite 3 way Yorkville PA System. As situations dictate, they perform with both Canadian and American bands. Info on the Canadian and American bands is available on the website. Their duo live show has drawn comparisons to White Stripes/Black Keys/Keb Mo/Allman Bros. and North Mississippi Allstars.

Crucial Music in Studio City California is representing 25 of Brooks’ songs to film/tv/commercials and has successfully placed ‘You’ll Find A Way’, a soul ballad from Rock This House aired on ABC’s TV Show The Fosters, as well as "Caught a Fire" from "Texassippi Soul Man" on ABC's New Girl.

“He’s that special musical jewel that we’ve never really had in Canada ... he’s our Solomon Burke, Otis Redding, Taj Mahal and Ralph Stanley rolled into one performer”. Chris Darton/Maple Blues Magazine

“Listening to Danny Brooks is like driving out of Memphis, TN on a sunny Saturday morning into the Mississippi Delta listening to WDIA. It's one of those things where time stands still. A dash of Eddie Hinton, Solomon Burke, Rev. James Cleveland and Howlin' Wolf are all ingredients in Danny's soulful musical stew'” states Greg Martin of the Kentucky Headhunters.

"Son for a white boy, you sho’ nuff got a sun tan on the inside” Brownie McGhee

Maybe Greg Quill, noted musician and arts writer for the Toronto Star, sums it up the best: 'This is Roots music of great distinction.'

Southern Supper with Little Magic Sam Taylor- Thursday, July 18, 2019

When the world gets down on Little Magic Sam, he gets down on a Les Paul. Hailing from St.Thomas, ON, Sam Taylor is a born entertainer with a penchant for raw blues music, and lyrics that bely someone much older than his 27 years. With an enormous stage presence, it comes as no surprise that this multi-talented singer/songwriter has been performing internationally since the age of 7.

After graduating from Fanshawe College with a diploma in Music Industry Arts, Sam headed into EMAC Studios with producer Moe Berg (of Pursuit of Happiness) on two original songs; Thought of Leaving and Loaded Gun, both of which received airplay across Southern Ontario. Loaded Gun has also been featured in the tv shows Haven, Cracked, and Degrassi. Sam’s versatile and honest song writing gives his music the emotional edge that sets him apart as a talented up and comer. His song writing can be heard on his collaborations with other Canadian recording artists, the most notable being Chad Price. He has also shared the stage with Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones), Gordon Lightfoot, and Whitehorse.

Little Magic Sam was thrilled to get the opportunity to record what would become his debut E.P. at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. Look for Little Magic Sam’s new E.P. on all major music platforms, CD and limited edition vinyl as of February 21st, 2019.

Little Magic Sam currently resides in Toronto where he performs regularly across the city, including a monthly residency at Sauce on the Danforth.

Our special menu for this Supper event includes Buttermilk Fried Chicken; Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes with Gravy; Green Beans cooked with potatoes & bacon; Buttermilk Biscuits; Pecan Pie; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.

Southern Supper with Matt Weidinger- Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Matt Weidinger has a voice like no other. The 26-year-old Kitchener, ON native is a passionate young songwriter, who is well known for his mature rock/soul vocals and impressive multi-instrumental (organ, guitar) talents.

 

His unmistakable earthly tones captivate the hearts of anyone who hears it. He performs like a veteran musician on the piano and organ, and is equally proficient on guitar, or mandolin.  

 

Although some consider him a throw back of the '60s, he still has the capacity to grab the attention of both the old, young and everyone in between. He's an “old soul” who easily commands the attention of any crowd.  His passion for music and performing is contagious.

 

Starting his music career at the ripe age of 15, Weidinger has had the pleasure of playing a variety of venues around Southwestern Ontario on a weekly basis. He also performs at multiple blues festivals around the province.

 

“His raspiness is used often to accentuate the emotion he emulates.  Yet, it’s never overdone. He knows what he is doing”. Dubecki, Craig, Velvet Rope. V.1.15.

 

Our special menu, for this Supper event includes Blackened U.S. Delta Farm Raised Catfish Fillets; Creole Red Beans & Rice with Sausage; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins; Pecan Pie; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.
