Ron Burke & Alittle Voodoo
Midwinter Bluesfest (2009), Calgary Bluesfest (2009)
In late 1992, Alittle Voodoo began playing all over western Canada. By 1993 they recorded their first live CD over three rockin' nights in Banff's Legendary club the Rose and Crown. In 1994, Alittle Voodoo began touring with blues/rock acts: Colin James, the late Jeff Healey, The Headstones, Paul Rodgers, Long John Baldry, David Gogo, Omar and the Howlers, Bo Diddley and a host of others. Alittle Voodoo tore down the house in 2006 as the opening act in Calgary for the late Bo Diddley, and backed him as his band.
Alittle Voodoo is led by frontman and guitar mauler, Ron Burke. Likened to Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnny Winters, and a few others, Ron's barrelhouse vocals partnered with his steamroller guitar playing won't let you believe you are hearing a 3 piece band. In 1994, the band was recognized with Best Band of the Year, with Ron also taking the honours as Best Male Vocalist and Best Guitar Player at the CJ92 awards. Bassist Tom Knowles, who began playing with the late, great Long John Baldry, has also shared the stage with other music legends such as Jimmy Page, Tom Jones, Crowbar, Kathi McDonald, and Blue Cheer. Rob Vulic fills out the trio on drums and the multiple Juno winning producer and co-writer of much of the latest album, Russell Broom joins the band every chance he can!
After a hiatus in the music scene - Ron Burke and Alittle Voodoo have re-emerged with a new studio album, Love, Lies and Could Be's. Ron was recently inducted into the 2010 Calgary Blues Music Hall of Fame as GUITAR PLAYER of the Year and bassist Tom Knowles repeated his 2009 win with the 2010 honour as BASS PLAYER of the Year.
