The 24th Street Wailers Are Unshakeable New CD and Canadian Tour

The 24th Street Wailers Are Unshakeable
New CD and Canadian Tour
On the heels of their sophomore release ‘Unshakeable’, Toronto’s The 24th Street Wailers are kicking off festival season with a Canadian tour that includes opening for American blues legend Jimmie Vaughan in Picton, Ontario to launch the tour.
Unshakeable has been getting extensive reviews, airplay and charting positions throughout Canada and USA.
The popular syndicated House of Blues Radio Radio Hour selected "Unshakeable" as their favorite new song of the week for the episode airing July 7/8.

Here is what reviewers are saying about The 24th Street Wailers:

“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.”

“You'd think it was the work of seasoned and toughened bar-band veterans, but these Wailers are actually fresh-faced music school products, all young but obviously getting the right seasoning fast.”
- Bob Mersereau, CBC Fredericton

“This CD shows significant growth over the Wailers first CD and is certain to win them a larger audience“

- Bman’s Blues Report

“Home Cookin’” and “Unshakeable” have a terrific 60’s feel, slow yet upbeat, and fantastic vocals. You can’t unshake the feeling. “I’m Not Free” is a bit slower paced, so we have a great variety of tracks. Jon Wong’s saxophone shines in “Trouble” and “Jack, Jim, Johnny, and Me.” Everyone’s talents pool together creating a great blend in “I Will,” specifically the opening.”
- Blues Rock Review

“If these Wailers were out to capture a vintage juke joint vibe, they’ve succeeded admirably. The overall groove of Unshakeable is casual but never sloppy, coy and occasionally slutty- but in a really cool way. One of my favorite blues outings of 2012.”
- John Kereiff, Gonzo Magazine

“The band’s sound is rough and tumble, bristling with raucous energy and greasy, grinding grooves. The well-written material seems geared to live performance and rowdy and lively audiences. They’re tough, take-no-prisoners tunes rich with innuendo and double-entendre, with lots of off-kilter stops and fills to keep things interesting throughout.”
- John Taylor, Blinded By Sound
