Jim Dan Dee, a self-described ‘bourbon fuelled funkabilly grunge blues’ band from Toronto, have been making some substantial waves in the Toronto music scene lately. They have performed several shows locally, including two at the famous Cherry Cola’s and have an upcoming Eastern Canadian tour planned in co-operation with Jim Beam bourbon. The band is also rated the #1 blues band locally and the #3 blues band nationally at Reverbnation. Their latest single, “The Silence” was produced by Jeff Martin (The Tea Party), and you can check out the official music video by viewing their YouTube channel, listed below.

I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
