This year marks the debut of 'Irene Torres & The Sugar Devils' a brand new all star line up that delivers the best in Funk, Motown, Jazz, Rnb, Soul, and Blues. The band was brought together by a love of all New Orleans music. They are performing weekly in Toronto's musical and historical landmark, The Silver Dollar Room every Tuesday. Irene Torres is also the voice of Canada's favourite flamenco world music group, SANTERIAS. Layla Zoe: Named "Canada's Darling of the Blues" by the press and often compared to Janis Joplin for her raw and emotional performances on stage, Layla Zoe was born in British Columbia, Canada in the late 70's. Layla is a force to be reckoned with and is changing the face of the roots and blues community.
