Sheldon Gordon Sings the Blues

George Street Blues Project Rocks at Halifax Jazz

Powerhouse R&B singer Sheldon Gordon entertains on the waterfront at Halifax Jazz Festival. He is backed by the rhythm section of Mike Flemming and Jeff Barnes, guitars of Terry Morrison and Paul MacNabb, and Dave Bedford with the sweet sounds of the harp.

Personnel: Dave Bedford – harmonica; Jeff Barnes – bass; Mike Flemming – drums; Paul MacNabb – guitar / voice; Sheldon Gordon – voice; Terry Morrison – guitar / voice.

Sheldon Gordon takes the spotlight with smooth and rasping blues, but the crowd gives a standing ovation to his impromptu dance with his mother.

Started as a “project” more than 10 years ago, the George Street Blues Band is now a  staple of the New Brunswick blues scene.  It has played in major festivals throughout Atlantic Canada and Quebec,  earning a reputation for keeping the blues alive in the  traditional style of Chicago blues. To this they add their own original material and mix in many old traditional tunes, giving all a unique blues style of their own.

At the Halifax Jazz festival, the band is fronted by R&B singer Sheldon Gordon, giving a  new energy. Sheldon returns to his roots to celebrate the Jazz Festival with an hour of blues. In a very touching moment Sheldon leaves the stage to invite his mum to dance the blues. The crowd loved it and the clips show a very human side of a rocking  blues star.
