Buckaloose brings you hard-driving groove and soul reminiscent of the Hammond B3 jazz organ groups of the 1960s and 70s, with a modern and personal touch. This intensely high-energy yet deeply warm and expressive performance at Montreal's top jazz venue is yours to enjoy over and over again!!

Since meeting in 2003, Vanessa Rodrigues (Montreal) and Chris Gale (Toronto) have been collaborating, recording and touring across Canada.
With the addition of Mike Rud (Montreal) and Davide DiRenzo (Toronto), a serious collective was formed with a live CD being the product of their intense musical bond (Gale/Rodrigues Group Live at the Rex - CGVR01; 2007)
The next chapter of the group's creative efforts came with the birth of Buckaloose, and along with the new name, their first studio album, recorded in 2010 for LeLab Records' “The 270 Sessions” jazz series.
