 At the Slice,  the Winnipeg based  jazz/ folk/ roots band the F-Holes sounded a little worse for the wear for their last show of their current tour and the last show of the year.

 But they brought it musically, though lead singer/ upright bassist Patrick Alexandre sounded like he  was coming down with a cold.

That actually gave his voice a more jazzy/ bluesy sound.

“It’s our last show of the year and  of the tour, so we’re going to give you everything we’ve got, though that might not be much,” he told the audience.

 In their first set, they covered most of their latest CD ‘Angel In The Corner.” I arrived in the middle of one of my favourites “Moving Along,” which has a good sized crowd of approximately 30 people sitting and listening attentively, though a couple got to dancing near the end of their first set.

 They also pulled a few songs off their debut CD for the show, which blended an array of horns, pedal steel guitar and lots of banjo through a variety of original songs including an instrumental from “Angel In The Corner.” The even threw in a jazzy cover of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”
They ended their set with a couple tracks from their latest record including  my favourite “Even Stevens.”
