Formed in 2013, THE JAMMED is a tribute act to punk/mod-revival band THE JAM. Playing lightening-fast covers, this Toronto-based trio recreates the high-energy and style of The Jam in the late 1970's, wearing tailored suits rather than ripped clothes. The trio was known for their melodic pop songs, strong harmonies, distinctive English flavour and mod image. Their music is infused with beat music, soul, rhythm and blues, psychedelic rock, as well as 1970's punk and new wave. THE JAMMED are: Cleave Anderson (formerly of Blue Rodeo), drums; Lucas Stagg (Lucas Stagg band) on bass and vocals, and Richard McCarthy (aka Filthy Rich), vocals and guitar.
Formed in 2014, BLONDEE is a tribute act to American rock band Blondie, founded by Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. Blondie was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid 1970s. BLONDEE is a four piece act that scales down the hits and earlier punk songs of Blondie to their bare bones, working with only vocal, one guitar, bass and drums. Sara Dishart captures the power and sultriness of Harry's voice, in addition to being inspired by Blondie's style and dress on stage. BLONDEE are: Sara Dishart, vocals; Cleave Anderson, drums, Lucas Stagg, bass and vocals; Richard McCarthy (aka Filthy Rich), guitar and vocals.
