New Orleans-style jazz with Red Hot Ramble: Roberta Hunt  lead vocals, piano; Jamie Stager vocals, trombone; Jacob Gorzhaltsan sax/clarinet;  Jacek “Jack” Zorawski vocals, acoustic bass; Glenn Anderson vocals, drums. Jacek and Glenn backed up Alex Pangman’s sold-out concert last July, and wanted to come back with their other band Red Hot Ramble. Here’s how they tell it:
“New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz music is also the home of great blues, rhythm & blues, second lines and ‘street beats’. Red Hot Ramble throws them all into the pot with and dishes them out in generous portions with a distinct taste of Canadiana thrown in! To borrow an old Louisiana saying, ‘Come as you are, leave different’, Red Hot Ramble, now in their 8th year together, has a well-earned reputation for their performances living up to that motto. The ‘Ramble’ is looking forward to performing for old and new friends at Hamilton’s Artword Artbar!” Website:  www.redhotramble.ca

Considering how successful he was at injecting the spirit of a city into his current collection (New York Stories) the next should have you feeling like you’ve just caught aces at The Sands!” Canadian Musician.
