Join us every Monday evening in Tomkins Park as a part of Summer on 17th for jam nights, paint and art events, dog-friendly gatherings and more. These events will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. from July 18 to August 29. On August 22, the Camie Leard Band will perform.
With its roots firmly planted in the Blues, the Camie Leard Band branches into soul, funk, southern rock and classic R&B. Influenced by artists ranging from Aretha Franklin to the Allman brothers, the Camie Leard Band weaves its way through the sweet and sultry torch song through to a laid-back funky groove and a driving blues rocker.
Fronted by the charismatic Camie Leard and her powerhouse vocals, CLB puts together a group of accomplished musicians who each bring their own brand of soul to the stage including Tim Martin on guitar, Johnny Gozde on drums, Richard Erickson on bass and, often featuring Brandon Smith on keys. For larger shows, the band adds Richard Harding on saxophone and Andre Wickenheiser on trumpet to round out the big soul sound.
The Camie Leard Band released its first studio album, Come out of the Blue, in December 2013 under Camie Leard. The band followed up with a live Christmas EP in 2014 and continues to develop new original music.
