Genra : Rock-soul
Bio : The Wreckage is the band that plays Chris Caddell’s original music with him. They go into the studio with him, and they bravely go into live venues with him. The Wreckage is stocked with formidable Toronto-based musicians at every position. Starting at the bottom of the sound, the Wreckage is driven by drummer, Cassius Pereira. Cass has played with Jeff Healey, Johnny Reid, and many others. Canadian music industry veteran, Derrick Brady, is on bass. Derrick has played with everyone from Serena Ryder to Hawksley Workman, and in addition to being a charter member of the Wreckage, Derrick is also currently in the Skydiggers. Derrick is frequently in the studio either playing bass or producing. On the other guitar, is another former Jeff Healey Band member and a musician who is widely recognized as one of the most skilled players in Canada or anywhere, Dan Noordermeer. Dan was a bandmate with Dave Murphy in the Jeff Healey Band and the two still play together to this day in the Dave Murphy Band. The fifth and final member of Chris Caddell and the Wreckage is B3 and piano player, Derek Giberson. Derek is a great singer and artist in his own right, as well as working with other singer songwriters such as Chris and Trish Robb.
“It is an absolute honor to be playing with this group of guys. When I got to Toronto, I would never have imagined that this would be my band some day. I used to watch all these guys in other bands, and really dig what they were doing. I have to always be on my toes playing with the Wreckage which in turn continues to push me to be a better player, singer, and writer.”
Thursday JACK PEDLER TRIO with ROCKET & THE INVADERS
Friday BIG RUDE JAKE
Genra :blues, jazz, rockabilly, jump, gospel, folk
Based in Toronto, Canada, Jake started in the mid 1990s by forming a band that combined his interest in traditional jazz, jump blues, rockabilly and punk. The lyrical style was inspired by his love for powerhouse songwriters like Tom Waits, Jacques Brel and Berthold Brecht. These ideas continue to take him and his music around the world.
Stuffy Jazz Intellectuals
A history buff as well as a music lover, photo by G. HurmusesJake was drawn to the jazz tradition for its passion and sensuality. He lamented the rise of the stuffy ‘jazz intellectual’ and dreamed up a plan to bring jazz back to its streetwise, rough hewn roots. His stage persona evoked strident passion and longing as he performed his jazz and blues influenced compositions in venues across Canada finding kindred spirits who appreciated his dream of a “Bawdy House Jazz” revival. Around this time, he became known as Father of the ‘Swing Punk’ sound, a catchy misnomer, since most of his body of work is not ‘Swing’.
Moving to New York and signing with Roadrunner Records resulted in Jake’s third album (self-titled/Defiance).
He spent the next few years touring Europe and the United States.
Upon completion of his 4th album in 2001 (LFDJ), BRJ took a protracted hiatus from the recording industry. The decision to ‘disappear’ was made during recovery from a car accident which prevented him from touring the new record. It served him well.
During those years, he went back to playing solo guitar, enjoying the chance to focus on the ragtime fingerpicking style he’d studied under Mose Scarlett. He still played live, both solo and as a band leader, but used a pseudonym, shaking off the ‘big suit party animal’ persona of recent years. It left many uncertain of his whereabouts.
Big Rude Jake’s return to the recording side of the music business was marked by the release of Quicksand in 2009 – yet another departure, inspired by Americana, Ragtime, Roots, Gospel and Folk.
The enthusiastically crowd-funded live album, LIVE AND OUT LOUD, launched October 3rd, 2012. It’s Jake’s 6th official release. Numbers 7 and 8 were not far behind. Watch for Jake’s pet side projects.
Rockabilly band, Tennessee Voodoo Coupe’s 2nd album launched at Viva Las Vegas 2013.
The release of Blue Mercury Coupe’s 6 piece retro punk (with horn section!) recording followed just a few weeks later.
Keep your eyes peeled for the BRJ ‘Little Band’.
