Sabrina Weeks & Mike Hilliard
Sabrina Weeks and Mike Hilliard are a high energy bouncing boogie blues duo hailing from British Columbia. Sabrina’s voice is a ménage à trois between Etta James, Fae West and Doris Day writhing beneath black satin sheets. Add Mike Hilliard who is by far one of the most underrated yet insanely talented guitar players in Canada and you have something exciting and fresh. When attending a Sabrina Weeks and Mike Hlliard performance, you laugh out loud, dance uncontrollably, sing along, loud and proud, and get lost in a series of unforgettable moments.

“Sabrina Weeks and Mike Hilliard are a sizzling, scintillating, swinging, soulful duo who deliver a first-class show wherever they appear- original and fresh with a new twist to the blues and a dance beat that just won't quit. Their show is a guaranteed crowd pleaser and this gal can REALLY sing! Sabrina is a Canadian treasure in the making.”
Jack Lavin, Powder Blues
"Sabrina has more energy than that bunny in the battery commercials. She also has class, style, sass and smarts. When she sings, the whole damn room lights up. I could be in love..."
Richard Flohil, Publicist, Richard Flohil and Associate
“Sabrina can caress a ballad, shout a mean blues, and swing with the best of them. Sabrina's gift in using her exceptional voice includes the ability to make lyrics come alive. Hearing her is a beautiful experience.”
Barbara Barnes Sims, Sun Records, 1957—1960
Although Sabrina and Mike predominantly tour as a duo, they can also appear as their four piece award winning dance band or are available for guest spots.
