Tamin Thunder / Press

“Whitney Houston may be gone but her music won’t soon be forgotten, especially with singers like Ilse Themen around. Themen, who fronts the Tamin’ Thunder band doing Rock, R&B and other Dance-oriented styles, has an uncanny ability to channel the late superstar, and in fact was in a Whitney tribute band for a few years. So expect a fair dose of Houston’s tunes when the group returns to Kornerstones (1601 Birchmount Ave. at Ellesmere) tonight. But TT is about way more than that —when I saw them there they had the dance floor packed from the first song! Of course it helps that the club is populated by a very party-minded group of young people most weekend nights!”

“The night was also a bit of a celebration for the band as they just received hot off the presses their debut CD. The CD is entitled Good As Gold. The album is made up of 10 original titles which showcases the band's talent of playing great straight up Rock music that we don't find much of these days especially with a female lead singer. Nowadays you would over-produce the album and layer it with machines and computers (the poison to music). These guys do not do this. Real musicians playing music, what a concept. Again the album is great and I send out my congratulations.”

“Three cheers for the band, Tamin' Thunder, who played a great mix of music from blues, classic rock, ballads, to country music, and their very versatile and fantastic singer Ilse.”

“THE 8th annual Heart & Stroke Fundraiser/Pigroast was a like a minnie Woodstock! With TAMIN' THUNDER headlining some amazing bands!”

“Tamin' Thunder is rockin' the house and then some at Main's Mansion in Markham. LOVE summer! And ROCK!”
