Cold Shot - Live / Press

“Cold Shot is Canada's premiere Stevie Ray Vaughan (SRV) tribute act, a power trio of Jimi Mann on guitar and vocals, Mike Walker on bass and Vinny "B" on drums. They were joined by keyboardist John Jamieson who weaved added colour into all the songs. Mann is a virtuoso in his own right and it was a pleasure hearing Stevie Ray's music being kept alive and being played to appreciative audiences. The visual aspect of a tribute band shouldn't be overlooked and Mann looked very much the part, in Vaughan's traditional hat, boots and of course, playing a beat up Stratocaster. Seeing Jimi Mann and Cold Shot brought back memories of seeing SRV and his band Double Trouble perform at Varsity Arena in July 1985 when he opened for Dire Straits on their Brothers In Arms tour. ”
