I saw Irene Torres & The Sugar Devils blues band at The Silver Dollar Room last night, where she performed her Billy Holiday tribute. Fabulous singer and band. I’ve never been to New Orleans, but I think that they would fit right in there. Rumor has it they’re playing at Roc’n Docs next month in Port Credit. I’ll be there.
Can you believe it? Irene drinks Jack Daniels straight up (like me). Right up on the stage — reminds me of Janis Joplin. Could Irene be a downhill skier? After all, there’s no better apres-ski drink.
I love the Silver Dollar room, which is on Spadina, just south of the mansion. It reminds me of Yorkville back in the 60′s, when the bands were showcased and not just the decor. Man, I’m really aging myself in this post, eh?
Well, enough plugs, now for the photos…
