Pat Temple and the HI LO Players @Charslanding
Fri, Apr 28th, 8-10pm, Concert Pat Temple & the HI LO Players Hillbilly Jazz, original Western Swing
Pat Temple pulls from the very best of the Western Swing, Jump Blues, and Rockabilly to fuel his fresh and uplifting songs with his three piece band Pat Temple & Kyler Tapscott on guitars, and Rob Foreman on upright bass, all three vocals.
Pats music is at once personal, familiar and infectious. His voice is compelling and his melodies are lasting.
Pats extensive body of work spans three decades and is infused with roots blues, folk and early jazz. His releases for BMG of Stone Boat and Connecting Lines plus his releases of One Tree Island, Cold Cuts, One Song At A Time and his most recent release Day For Day for the Wingwalker label give us cult favourites Salamaner Bones and the CMT video released Playin Havoc With My Heart.
Pat Temple is a favoured performer at many Canadian blues, folk and jazz music festivals and his concerts at The National Art Gallery and the Ontario Place Forum are part of our cultural heritage. The Hi Lo at Massey Hall release for Wingwalker is one such inspiring Pat Temple concert.
Pat Temple continues to be, surrounded and accompanied by stellar Canadian musicians Terry Wilkins, Spencer Evans, Frank Barth and more recently Alan Black, Rob Foreman and Kyler Tapscott.
The live shows are uplifting and toe tappin'. You'll either be dancing on the floor or in your seat.
Temple's gently persuasive vocals are easy on the ear, and his songwriting chops are solid- Kerry Doole, New Canadian Music
Much like Leon Redbone, at its best, Day For Day evokes another time and place, a sepia toned nostalgia. - Devin Shael Fox, JAZZ.FM91
