Cootes Paradise specializes in roots based music that is bluesy, funky, and filled with soul.
Featuring lead vocals by the legendary Sue Leonard (k.d. lang, Bruce Willis, Bon Jovi), and Wayne Krawchuk (Sidestreet, Tight Little Island) supported by Mark Volkov (a triple threat, playing flute, sax, and violin), Lily Sazz (keyboards, vocals), Amy Di Nino (drums, vocals), and Ian Taylor (bass, vocals), the result is an infectious, groove-based sound with a mix of super cool covers and originals that easily stand up to the rest of the repertoire.
Huge thanks to Tiffany Thompson, Doug Smith, Erin McFadden, M.J. Russell for their technical, creative, and moral support.
Filmed at This Ain’t Hollywood in Hamilton, Ontario.
