The Kingston Blues Society, of which I am a member, presents (although she likely won’t be naked!):
LAYLA ZOE and her ALL STAR BAND
Originally from Vancouver – one of the most amazing voices – described as “The Reincarnate of Janis Joplin”

Show tickets and separate show/dinner packages are now available for LAYLA ZOE – one of the best young female blues artists in the country, she has been compared to Janis Joplin and was recently up for the part in a Janis Joplin bio pic coming out in 2013 (She was the last person cut – among the actresses considered for the role of Janis Joplin were Renée Zellweger, Britney Spears, Nikka Costa, Scarlett Johansson and Lindsay Lohan).
Layla will be backed by an all star band including Drew Austin on drums and James Rasmussen on bass (both from David Rotundo’s band ).
Layla Zoe has a phenomenal voice and a stage presence that will captivate you – she has quickly become the “darling of Canadian blues” and she has appeared with nearly every great blues musician in this country.
In Europe she is in huge demand and has taken that continent by storm. Everyone who has seen her raves about her performances and she has five independently released CDs (she has released one every year).
Opening for Layla will be Belleville, ON band, TORE DOWN. The executive of the KBS saw them perform recently at the Loyal Blues Society Road to Memphis Competition and were so impressed that they asked them to open the show.
Don’t miss this perfect Valentine’s date night opportunity!
Me with Blues singer/musician/harmonica player extraordinaire, David Rotundo!
I’ve been a lover of live Blues music since I was in college in the early ’80’s and have seen many amazing Blues artists play in Kingston, Belleville, Toronto, Vancouver and Austin. I’ve highlighted some of my very favourites in bold on the list below.
