Bradley/McGillivray Blues Band
Ring in the New Year!
“Bounce out the old year and ring in the new with Bradley/McGillivray Blues. Hip, grit, power and tenderness–this band is one of Vancouver’s live music treasures, fusing blues, jazz, funk and gospel into their signature brand of soul. Ruth McGillivray is a singer you won’t forget–captivating, authentic and entertaining. Her knock-you-flat vocals are tastefully interwoven with Sheldon Bradley’s jazz and grit guitar, the whole sound rounded out by an inventive rhythm section featuring funk-masters Paul Freeman on bass, and Hoto Parker on drums and percussion.
For Bradley/McGillivray, the blues are more about attitude and resilience than genre. Influenced by artists as diverse as BB King, Jon Cleary, Janis Joplin, Merle Haggard, Aretha Franklin and Etta James, they feature an eclectic repertoire of original music and fresh takes on old favourites. Expect warmth, laughter and authenticity in every show. A band of music lovers for an audience of music lovers.”
