Dan Sinasac Band - March 15, 2014
Dan Sinasac - Dan Sinasac is a singer/songwriter with a passion for soulful, funky rhythm and blues. His passion is the Hammond B3 organ and he plays it with heart and soul. Dan learned a lot growing up across the river from Detroit listening to the soul, R&B and blues sounds churning out of the Motor City. You can hear it in his gritty vocals, the funky fingering of his bluesy keyboard work and his rootsy approach to songwriting. I dare you to sit still as he punches your lights out with one tune after another of funky soulful blues done as only as Dan can do it. It'll make you want to testify.
Randy Forsberg - “Big Daddy” (as he is affectionately known) has been a professional bassist for over 40 years. Randy is a deliciously funky and perfectly groovy bass player who can play anything, which makes him one of Edmonton’s busiest and most requested bassists. Randy has performed with the legendary Bo Diddley, Bruce Conte of Tower of Power, Canadian Blues legend Morgan Davis, country star Mo Brandy, rock/blues mainstay Jeff Healy, The Headpins, Nick Gilder with Sweeny Todd, and hall of famer Wilf Carter.
Gerry Moellering - Gerry, who first picked up a guitar at the tender age of 10, delivers a sound that is silky smooth and undeniably his own, with a clarity and intensity that leaves any musical fan wanting more. Gerry has a strong passion for the blues mixed with flavours of contemporary soul, and his quiet yet solid leadership on stage is an asset to anyone who’s lucky enough to play with him. Gerry has been a fixture in Edmonton’s music community for over thirty years. He’s dabbled in almost every imaginable genre, from Hard Rock to Country, and currently he’s thrilled to be immersing himself in Blues and R&B. Gerry has played with and opened for some great musicians over the years, including Jeff Healy, Dr. Hook, The Headpins, and April Wine, but the highlight of his career was playing with the legendary Bo Diddly, which he describes as “an absolute privilege”.
Dean Pierno - Drummer, percussionist, bandleader, and drum circle facilitator, has been making his living in music for over 30 years. Dean’s musical journey has included gigs and performances with: Tommy Banks, Gary Guthman (Harry James Tribute),The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Don Rickles Orchestra, The Louie Armstrong Tribute, Ekos (Edmonton Kiwanis) Singers, Ian Stewart, Ashley MacIsaac, The Legendary Platters, Andrew Glover, Tyler Hamilton, Edmonton Musical Theater and Chuck Wagon and the Wheels just to name a few. Fluent in the styles of Jazz, Dixieland/Traditional Jazz, Pop, R&B, Funk, Blues, Celtic, Folk, Big Band and Swing, Country and Classic Rock, Dean provides the perfect groove for any situation. His sound and approach to the music are designed to respect the music he’s performing and musicians he’s performing with.
Rockin' blues and R&B tunes from 8pm till midnight at Old Timers Cabin. Come out and join the EDMONTON BLUES SOCIETY and THE DAN SINASAC BAND for a soulful evening of dancing, fun and keeping live blues music alive in Edmonton!
