Southern Supper with Ginger St. James- July 19, 2018

*** DUO EVENT WITH SNOWHEEL SLIM ***
“A sassy and dynamic rockabilly singer, songwriter and guitarist, creating a national buzz with some slightly cheeky music and a captivating charisma fueled by her roaring voice and model beauty.” – Nick Krewen, Toronto Star

With her sultry and powerful voice, her sassy and commanding stage presence, and a repertoire that blends country, rock n’ roll and blues, Ginger St. James packs a lot of entertainment into her 5-foot frame.

Following the tradition of country songbirds like Loretta Lynn, Ginger writes and sings music from real experience; growing up on the family farm, being broke, having fun, and love gone wrong. Her early life in Binbrook, Ontario was heavily influenced by American southern culture, listening to country radio in the barn. Although trips with Dad to the vintage car and rockabilly shows had their impact, her signature song ‘Ramblin’ Country Bumpkin’, proves that this gal is more Hee Haw than Happy Days.

A born entertainer, St. James began writing songs and telling jokes at 3 years old. Inspired by watching musicals, cabaret and listening to Big Band 8 tracks at Nanny and Grandad’s, she enrolled in jazz and tap dance lessons, performed in school plays and spent a summer at the Theatre Aquarius acting camp. She began a successful career as a dancer, actress and model, driven by her natural charisma and passion for the stage.

Feeling the most “in her own skin” expressing herself musically, St. James began writing tongue-in-cheek songs that were entertaining lyrically as well and visually and musically. Focusing on singing and learning guitar licks, she eventually moved to Toronto to break into the local roots music scene. There she was contacted by guitarist Snowheel Slim, who became her songwriting partner and bandleader. St. James moved back to Hamilton where she has established a solid fan base, expanding her reach across Ontario and Eastern Canada with countless major festival, fair, theatre and headline appearances.

She released her first EP, Spank, Sparkle & Growl, which won Alt/Country Recording of the Year at the 2010 Hamilton Music Awards. Independent Canadian label Let’s Riot Music signed St. James in 2012 and released her follow up EP, Tease.

Apart from being a seasoned performer and emerging songwriter, St. James is also a brainy businesswoman and entrepreneur. She recently recorded 3 tunes for the HBO TV series Call Me Fitz. Classic Rock Magazine featured one of her songs ‘Please Mister Driver’ on their 2012 Young, Gifted & Blues compilation. Her “pedal to the metal” band has opened for Rockabilly legends like Robert Gordon, and Sleepy LaBeef, captivating audiences wherever they roam. Hamilton’s View Magazine named her ‘Best Female Artist’ for four consecutive years.

Ginger St. James and her band wrapped up 2014 with nearly 100 live performances behind them. This “chick from the sticks” won’t be taking any time to hang out in the barnyard in 2015 either, as she plans to tour across Canada & into Europe to support her debut full-length album, Diesel & Peas.

* 2015 Hamilton Music Award winner – Female Vocalist of the Year
* View Magazine (Hamilton)’s Best Female Artist (2008-2013)
* 2014 Hamilton Spectator Reader’s Choice Diamond Award: Best Local Musician
* Two songs featured on the HBO Television Series “Call Me Fitz”
* Supports for Robert Gordon, Johnny Reid, The Blasters, Reverend Horton Heat and Sleepy LaBeef
* “Please Mister Driver” featured on Classic Rock Magazine’s 2012 Young, Gifted & Blues CD
* Alt/Country Recording of the Year at the 2010 Hamilton Music Awards

“If you haven’t seen this Hamilton singing sensation, its really time you did” – Graham Rockingham, The Hamilton Spectator.

“A sultry singer with a surprisingly lithe and powerful voice, razor wit and a vaudevillian sense of showmanship. It’s no put-on.” – Hamilton Magazine

“Diesel & Peas 9/10 – A definite contender for my album of the year and one foot tapping monster of a hit.” – Tony TC Corner, Firebrand Rock Radio UK

“Nothing I like better than someone that can sing and play the blues, with a bit of honky tonk/rockabilly tossed in. Diesel and Peas has it all. Her powerful voice can cover it all. You ain’t seen nothing yet from Ginger St. James. Bravo!” -Ted Michaels, CHML Radio

“She’s saucy. She’s slinky. And she’s sultry… She’s Ginger St. James. And when she sings you know you’re hearing something special” – Ken Wallis, 101.5 The Hawk FM

Our special menu for this Southern Supper will include.....Blackened Chicken Skewers with Remoulade Sauce; CrawfiSh Etouffee served over white rice; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Buttermilk Cornbread Muffin; Red Velvet Cake; Sweet Iced Tea; Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.

Southern Supper with Paul James- Saturday, June 16, 2018

** FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND **

Paul James is one of the most exciting and energetic Toronto-based Canadian musicians – past, present and future.

Paul James has received many music awards during his long career in the music business. He is winner of a Juno Award, multiple Toronto Music Awards,‘The Maple Blues (Lifetime Achievement Award for Blues Music in Canada), the London Fire Hall Lifetime Achievement Award, and he has many more music awards to grace his mantle. However, winning the respect of his musical peers always rated more highly than winning any awards for Paul.

Bo Diddley asked Paul to open his show and to back him up over 100 times between the years 1973 and 2007. Paul co-wrote a song with Bo, recorded with him and helped him to create the whole soundtrack for the movie, ‘Diary of a Sinner’. Bo Diddley played on Paul’s first vinyl album,’ Almost Crazy’, and wrote the liner notes for his second album, ‘The Paul James Band’. In 1986 Bo wrote: “From the beginning of his young career, I predicted that Paul James would be a big star one day and that time is now! The man is a true professional and dynamic! Listening to Paul James is listening to the building of a new thing, and he is a new thing. Paul James is a great musician, He’s a great tribute to Rock’n’Roll.”

Bob Dylan sat in with Paul’s band, and came to see Paul perform on numerous occasions. In 1990, Dylan invited Paul James to play an acoustic set to open his show at Canada’s Wonderland. Dylan further invited Paul to sit in with his band many times in Toronto, London, Oshawa and Buffalo. In 1986, when they first met, Dylan advised Paul that if he would move to L.A. and just do what he does in Toronto there, he would make it big for sure. Unfortunately, Paul had to keep his home base in Toronto for family reasons.

In 1982, Willy DeVille asked Paul to join his New York based band, Mink DeVille. Paul stayed in New York living in Willy’s apartment in Greenwich Village for about a month while learning all the Mink DeVille material for an upcoming twelve country world tour. Paul also recorded with Mink DeVille while he was in New York before the tour. There is a Great DVD documenting that tour titled ‘Mink DeVille Live at Montreux 1982’.

Paul played lead and rhythm guitar for New York Bluesman John Hammond. They played about 100 nights together over a thirty year period, mostly in Toronto and also in Ottawa, London, Montreal and Edmonton. Paul played on one of Hammond’s albums, ‘Nobody But You’ and Hammond played on two of Paul’s albums,’Acoustic Blues’ and Rockin’ the Blues’.

Paul has played guitar for Texas guitar great Lightning Hopkins, and piano greats Sunnyland Slim, Johnny Johnson, and Dr, John.

Paul James was a trailblazer for the independent music scene in Canada, as he was an independent recording artist long before it was popular to be one. He released his first vinyl 45 RPM original single, ‘Joint Out Back’ in 1973, on his own label Lick’n’Stick Records. Paul proved he could be successful as an Indie artist and many others followed his lead thereafter. He probably was the first independent recording artist to play all ten provinces in Canada, traveling in his van with his band.

Paul was a Canadian Blues Crusader! He played the Blues in bars since 1968 when it was not nearly as popular as it is now and long before there were any ‘Blues Societies’ or ‘Blues Awards in Canada.’ Paul James kept the Blues flame burning in Toronto even through the late 1970s when the disco era caused so many live bands to give up.

Currently, Paul James is a Canadian cultural icon. He is a veteran entertainer who has seen all that this crazy music business has to offer. His talents as a guitarist, vocalist, band leader, stage acrobat, producer, songwriter, trailblazer, and owner of his own Indie record label have all allowed Paul to perform and produce the music he loves for close to five decades. Paul is not over the hill yet – in fact, he is still going up it!

Paul James is a real musician’s musician. He has been constantly surrounded by the world’s stage of big time players, such as Mink DeVille, Bo Diddley, Bob Dylan, John Hammond, Dr. John, Spencer Davis, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Jeff Healey, Honeyboy Edwards, Johnny Johnson, Jack Scott, and Sunnyland Slim, just to name a few.

Sometimes it does pay to play the clown. Just ask Toronto bluesman Paul James. Way back when, in 1986, James was hamming it up in his trademark style at a Nag's Head North gig. Wearing a crazy, ruffled, purple tuxedo shirt, James boogied over to the
bar. He was playing with one hand and drinking a beer with the other when, lo and behold, Bob Dylan jumped up right in front of him. Yes, that Bob Dylan. The legendary folk-rock star was impressed. James, a Dylan fan since he "first heard him," thought he was hallucinating. Dylan joined him on stage. "Just introduce me as the hitchhiker from Vancouver," he told James.

A few weeks ago, Dylan returned the favour -- summoning James to a concert at Buffalo's Midland Arena. Near the end of the show, Dylan announced that he had a friend in the audience. Would Paul James care to join him on stage?

"Uh, oh," James recalls saying to himself. "That's me." Together they performed Highway 61 and Like a Rolling Stone, then came back for an encore of Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat and Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away. After the show, Dylan told James he'd like to give him a call when he's recording his next album.

"Well, do it," said James, who's still walking around in a daze after his "dream come true." Kind of makes it hard, one would imagine, to go back to the dingy barroom circuit.

Our special menu for this Supper event includes....

Catfish, Shrimp, Sausage, & Okra Gumbo; Blackened Chicken Fillets; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Buttermilk Cornbread Muffin; Pecan Pie; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.
