Formed in 2013, THE JAMMED are 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 (Blue Rodeo, Battered Wives), drums; Paddy Burn (Ichi-Bons) on bass and vocals, and Richard McCarthy (aka Filthy Rich), vocals and guitar.
Formed in 2017, BLOOD ROSES are an original and cover act playing new wave, punk rock, and rock n’ roll covers. As an extension of songwriting duo, Sara Dishart and Filthy Rich, Blood Roses play popular covers from bands like The Clash, Blondie, Patti Smith, Velvet Underground, The Kinks, Billy Idol, David Bowie, The Cure, Joy Division, The Smiths and more. Guaranteed to get you up dancing on the floor.
BLOOD ROSES are: Richard McCarthy (aka Filthy Rich), guitar, vocals; Sara Dishart (Blondee, Pop Dead Gorgeous), vocals, guitar; Cleave Anderson (Blue Rodeo, Battered Wives), drums; and Tristan Schultz, bass.
