WANNABE: Spice Girls Tribute Band

Wannabe is the brainchild of Suzy Wilde, Barbara Johnston, Anika Johnson, Catherine Merriam and Jasmyn Fyffe. The idea for the group was born one summer when the five best friends ( all professional Toronto-based performers) all happened to be living under the same roof.

Wannabe: The Spice Girls Tribute BandWannabe is the brainchild of Suzy Wilde, Barbara Johnston, Anika Johnson, Catherine Merriam and Jasmyn Fyffe. The idea for the group was born one summer when the five best friends ( all professional Toronto-based performers) all happened to be living under the same roof. They recruited six excellent musicians to be their back-up band and brought in a team of production staff to help polish the group. After studying concert footage, working with a dialect coach, lifting choreography, arranging/charting the songs and rehearsing for several months, Wannabe was ready to hit the stage for what they thought would be a single show.

The day of the performance, The Toronto Star caught wind of the act and published an article on the front page of the entertainment section, and before they knew it, the girls had sold out their first performance at the El Mocambo in Toronto. By popular request, Wannabe continued to produce shows in Toronto and soon began to tour.

Five years later, the shows continue to grow. Wannabe has traveled across North America, playing theatres, concert halls, clubs, casinos, outdoor festivals and campus stages, constantly adding new material, costume changes, dance moves and bits of banter between numbers. The girls have been approached by event organizers worldwide, and have been offered appearances on The Steve Harvey Show and The Ex Factor. From celebrity hosts to gospel choirs, every show offers something new.

Burton Cummings Up Close and Alone TourBurton Cummings’ musical creations continue to resonate with fans both old and new. His voice is considered to be one of the finest in rock music, and he has continued to uphold this impressive reputation as performer, singer, songwriter and recording artist.

With Canada’s original rock ‘n’ roll superstars The Guess Who, Burton scored an unprecedented string of international hit singles and albums, including These Eyes, Laughing, No Time, American Woman, Share The Land, Hang On To Your Life, Albert Flasher, Sour Suite, Orly, Glamour Boy, Star Baby, Clap For The Wolfman and Dancin’ Fool, all written or co-written by Burton. Upon leaving the Guess Who to go solo in 1976, Cummings earned a gold record with his debut solo single, “Stand Tall.”

Then came more than a dozen hit singles and albums including “I’m Scared”, “I Will Play a Rhapsody”, “Timeless Love”, “Break It To Them Gently”, “Fine State of Affairs”, “You Saved My Soul”, My Own Way To Rock and Dream Of A Child. That latter disc became the first quadruple platinum-selling album by a Canadian artist.

For their fifth album, Elliott Brood wanted to break things. 2008’s Mountain Meadows was shortlisted for the Polaris Prize, and the band’s last record, Days Into Years, won a 2011 Juno award for roots album of the year. Now was the time to smash the precedents, break the mould. To withdraw to a farmhouse in Bath, Ontario, hammering out nine songs in two weeks.

For the first time, Elliott Brood decided to work with an outside producer: Ian Blurton, who has helped make roaring records for the Weakerthans, Skydiggers and Cursed. And for the first time, the group’s two songwriters decided to mine the bare histories of their own lives: penning verses about the ends of relationships and the tests of adulthood, long drives, childhood retreating in a rear-view mirror. “Work and Love will make a man out of you,” the Constantines sang; and so here is Elliott Brood’s Work and Love, their most personal album to date, the sound of a grown-up band searching their hearts for all they’ve lost and gained.
