Suzie Vinnick and Tony D blow away the Monday night blues

Monday is a good night for the blues, so the Geomatic Attic was happy to wind  up 2017 with  a couple of Canada’s best— Suzie Vinnick and MonkeyJunk’s Tony D, Monday, Dec. 4.

 I missed the first set, but caught an exceptional second set, which focused on Vinnick’s “Me N’ Mabel” Cd and some new material. Vinnick and Tony Diteodoro took turns singing leads and adding special sauce to each other’s songs.
 They started off hot with a gorgeous cover of Bob Dylan’s  “Quit Your Lowdown Ways.” They continued with an equally hot cover of John Fogerty’s “One Hundred and Ten in the Shade“ and stayed in the traditional blues mode with blues classic “Spoonful.”

Tony D showed his guitar prowess and his love for Jimi Hendrix with a stunningly beautiful  version of Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” which drew rousing cheers from the quiescent, transfixed crowd.
 Vinnick broke a few hearts with her sultry, sexy voice reminiscent of Sue Foley and Bonnie Raitt as she sang a pair of  sexy songs from “Me N’ Mabel”— “You’ll be Mine” and the highlight “Save Me For Later.” Apparently I missed her great cover of “Oreo Cookie Blues,” which she played in the first set, but  stayed with the food theme for “Save Me For Later.”

 She played a couple of Roy Forbes songs including “ Crazy ’Bout Loving Me,” from “Me n’ Mabel.”
 In addition to  her great voice, she showed she was no slouch on acoustic guitar, playing some impressive solos.” Suzie Vinnick playing the Geomatic Attic. Photo by Richard Amery

She showed her country side after telling  a story about playing for her dad’s favourite song “ I Need A Cowboy” while he was in hospice care and got the audience to sing along with the chorus.
They were called back for an encore of Roy Forbes’ “ Let Me Make it Up To You” as she promised she would be back.
