THE FADE KINGS      
The Fade Kings have been providing great live music - R&B, Blues, Jazz, and Classic Rock - in the Quinte Area and south eastern Ontario since 1992 but it all began in the 1960s during one of the most revolutionary musical decades ever.

There was a confluence of Memphis Rockabilly, British invasion re-looping American Blues, Motown pounding out R&B, soul drenched, and a pervasive San Francisco psychedelic glow. Let's not forget Chicago and the boys at Chess, nor the real deal from Stax...if this is making sense to you, then you have an idea of what is happening in our sound.

These were the influences, more like trailblazers that broke down barriers, the voices that questioned the political and social values of that day. To the point...we pay homage to the past.

The music we make is heartfelt, straight ahead and occasionally sparkles with just a drop of something pure and truthful.

                             

Groove leaders in the greater Quinte area for the last 30 years The Fade Kings have developed a distinctive, unique sound featuring strong musicianship & vocals covering multiple genres… Soulful R&B, Classic Rock , Smooth Jazz  and Smokin’ Blues. Their unique sound is heavily influenced by the 60’s/70’s musical revolution … Motown and Stax, British Invasion, Rockabilly , Chicago Blues , Toronto’s Yorkville Scene, Prairies Soul and West Coast Psychedelics .

The Fade Kings have previously performed at the Limestone City Blues Festival (Kingston), Prince Edward County Jazz Festival (joined onstage by Richard Underhill of Shuffle Demons, Blue Rodeo’s Bushwack Horns), Lakefield Jazz and Arts Festival, and End of Winter Bluesfest at Loyalist College where they were chosen to represent the Loyalist Blues Fellowship at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis . Their music has been featured on CBC Radio , CKLN 88.1 FM Toronto , CFRC-FM Queens , CKOL , CJLX and KWE 105.9

      

THE GRIDDLE PICKERS

     

The Griddle Pickers are a bluegrass and old-time band based in Central Ontario. The group features the driving banjo and fiddle melodies of Sean Patrick and Jay Edmunds, the precision flat picked guitar work of Dale Patrick, and the solid double bass foundation of Derek Fraser. Their music centers around tight four-part vocal harmony and an exciting repertoire of original and traditional material.
