    Experienced, road-tested and tougher than a two by four, The 24th Street Wailers are five musicians who originally met in music school. Their major influence? The sounds from the freewheeling period in the ‘40s and ‘50s when the Blues gave birth to Rock and Roll in black communities in major American cities. When showmanship mattered. When the sax player, not the guitarist, got the girls. 2012’s Unshakeable reached Top 10 on the Roots Music Report and carried the band even further — Dan Aykroyd’s House of Blues radio show called it “raw and authentically funky.” And Bill Wax’s syndicated B.B. King Radio Show on SiriusXM confirmed the band’s widespread national and international radio play. The Wailers have put the icing on the cake with a 2nd studio album, released early this year. Wicked is the CD’s title, and the adjective perfectly describes the music. Recorded in Austin Texas and produced by Billy Horton, producer and bassist for Texas rocker Nick Curran and who is also currently Jimmie Vaughan’s bass player, Wicked is a collection of 11 songs by Lindsay and Emily, with two covers, both of them considerable departures from the originals. Horton’s worked produced a who’s-who of Texas bands, and he helped put The Wailers’ drive and energy into the record’s grooves. The band’s put their autographs on a number of milestones along the road to success. They’ve been the only non-Quebec band to win both the Reléve en Blues and the Air Transat/Blues sur Seine competitions at Festiblues International de Montreal, which sent them to France to perform at The Blues sur Seine Festival. The Wailers were nominated for major Maple Blues Awards two years in a row, and for Blues Group/Duo of the Year at the Sirius XM Indie Awards. In February 2012, the band were semi-finalists in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, cementing their place among their musical peers. “Beyond the 12 bar blues bands and weekend warriors, it is amazing to see the 24th Street Wailers among a new breed of young acts creating fresh material and proving there is such a thing as Canadian blues that is as valid as Chicago, delta, West Coast, British or any other kind of blues out there.” -Chris Martin, CBC Music Blues Community Producer “Unshakeable is raw and authentically funky…these young players have the natural rhythm and looseness of studied musicians, which is a breath of fresh air.” -thebluesmobile.com

Bio: Ya wanna piss off the 24th Street Wailers?
Easy: Just tell them how hot their young band is.Why would that make them mad? Easy: the band hates praise that defines them by the word “young.”
“Hell, we’ve played full-time for close to five years. We’ve played hundreds of dates in bars and clubs and ...See Full Bio

Press

"The new album, WHERE EVIL GROWS is perfect and right in the pocket for 24th Street Wailers fans. No band mines the excitement of early rock 'n' roll and vintage R & B with more energy, sincerity and fun. As they used to say in the 50's 'all killer, no filler!" Holger Petersen CBC Radio, CKUA and Stony Plain Records.
