ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is a solid Rhythm & Blues Christmas collection filled with all the trimmings. These traditional Christmas songs have the extra kick of Rhythm & Blues, Funk, and Swing decorated by a 6 piece band with a trumpet and saxophone. Get hip with the holidays and find that Christmas spirit with Andre Bisson’s Rhythm & Blues Christmas.
The musicians performing on his CD are; André Bisson, Dan Rodrigues, Kevin Freer, Anthony Giles, Jackie Chalmers, and Loretta Hale.

You can visit Andre’s site at www.andrebisson.ca and his band at www.andreandthejtones.com

Andre Bisson is a Hamilton, Ontario musician who began playing in bars and restaurants at the age of 15 in Sault Ste Marie singing 50’s Rock ‘n’ Roll music such as; Elvis, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry. He accomplished a lot at by age 17, André came 11 out of 150 in the Collingwood Elvis Competition, and at 18 he joined and played in a rhythm and blues band in Sault Ste Marie. Some great musicians that he has opened up for are; Jason McCoy, Diane Chase, and Beverley Manhood.

When he came to Hamilton he started a 6 piece Rhythm & Blues band called Andre & the J-Tones Rhythm & Blues Experience which includes a rhythm section as well as a Trumpet and Saxophone. The band now continues to play cities such as: Hamilton, Burlington, Mississauga, Ottawa, Sault Ste Marie, Niagara Region, Kincardine, and Milton. Along with his originals, the band also performs music from Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, The Commitments, The Blues Brothers, Joe Cocker, Stevie Wonder, CCR, The Guess Who, Bill Withers, The Temptations, The Beatles, James Brown, and so much more.

With a great presence André’s vocals have the power of Wilson Pickett as well as the gentle sound of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, the great talent of arranging, guitar playing, business knowledge, and of course his gutsy, raspy, and passionate/soulful voice. André has no problem delivering his songs with a heavy groove line making everyone in the room sit up and listen.

There's nothing more important to Andre than been able to play the music that he loves, getting the crowd on the dance floor, and at the same time managing to have an unpretentious and the most professional attitude.

Super!
The STAX musicians would have been proud! It just feels good to hear these tracks. I love the sound and hope we continue to hear more music like this.

Funky Christmas
That really was an enjoyable take on Christmas music. Well done, I'll be sure to send this to my friends.
I really liked the funky Silent Night and bluesy Santa Claus is back in town.
Thanks Andre.
