This Saturday August 9th at the Evergreen Cultural Centre, Music on the Grill will conclude with Zakiya Hooker, a talented, accomplished blues musician who recalls the style and soul of her father, John Lee Hooker, with a soothing, sophisticated and romantic vocals that is all her own. For almost 7 years, Music on the Grill has given Coquitlam residents; lovers or great entertainment a chance to relax, enjoy the summer breeze and feast on great barbecue with some of the world’s most accomplished musicians in blues, folk, jazz and country. The final night of this season’s series is sure to be one of it’s best, so be sure to get your tickets while you can! Shifting from blues to folk and country and back again, the series concludes with a turn to traditional blues passed down by one generation’s blues legend to another. Zakiya Hooker’s passionate, soulful style is both personal and soothing, as unique as it is rich. Birthed out of the traditional blues her father was famous for, Zakiya has evolved her music, performing with legendary artists around the world. It’s safe to say that she truly has “earned the right to sing the blues,” (Contra Costa Times) and has blossomed into one of blues most talented and experienced performers. Along with Chris James, another talented musician that mentored and coached Zakiya, guests are in for a real treat as they rediscover the magic of the Blues. We spoke with Zakiya on the phone about her career, her upcoming album and seizing her passion for music. On the beginnings of her music career… For 28 years I worked for the Superior Court of California. I had three children to raise, but I also had a day job. I was a manager for the State of California, for the Superior Court. I was a Jury Master. And I also did my music while I did that. Because I was a manager and I’d been there for so long I had a lot of time that I could take off. So they’d schedule me, (the Talent Agent & Manager) they would call and say hey, we got your dates and I would set that up and go on my gigs, then come back to work. On meeting her husband and focusing on the music… Basically I started focusing really [on the music] around 1987 and that’s when I met Chris, Chris James [aka Ollan C. Bell]. And he had been, he was into music already because he had been with the MOTOWN label, he’d been on ABC/Dunhill [Record Label]. His group [The Natural Four] had had the Gold Record and everything. So, when I met him he was working with his children. And I was doing background and he realized I could sing. We started talking about it and I said this is what I’d like to do; so he started to work with me. And because I was new to California I didn’t really know a lot of people in the music scene, where as he knew everybody in the music scene. And so he put a band together, he was also my vocal coach. And then in 1991, my first performance was with my dad. Well, it wasn’t my first performance, it was my first with him. On her first performance with her father, John Lee Hooker… It was really a trip to perform with him because it was really intimidating, you know even though he’s my father, it was very intimidating because I’m on the stage with John Lee Hooker! You know, even though he’s my father, there’s still the man and the persona. And so after the show I mean I was so, so tight and nervous I actually had to- after we finished the show I left and went home, I was just sick. (Laughing) I was just sick, my stomach was killing me. I was in knots. But it was really a great experience, being up there with him… I left the stage, left the dressing room and went home. I saw him the next day! He even asked me where I went, I said, I went home! I said, I was so nervous and he said, Nervous about what? I’m your daddy; you don’t have to be nervous around me. I said, Oh lord! On the influence of traditional blues… Well my major, major, major influence is Blues. And it’s not the contemporary blues, it’s really the traditional blues because that’s what I heard growing up. With my dad, and the traditional music that he did. Even though he did have a band and the band was, you know, I’m guessing his style of blues. And that’s what I knew, and what you know as a child grows up with you and stays with you. So that’s the music that’s number one for me, that very traditional music. On the direction of her next album… I’m starting to move even more traditional than that, you know Lead Belly and on my new CD I’m going to be doing some of his songs. I’m going to be doing In the Pines and I’m doing Ain’t it a Shame and I’m working on Backwater Blues.It’s going to be that kind of a CD. Once we get back from Canada, we’ll get started. Right now we’re working on getting ready for our shows up there. On working with local musicians and performing abroad… When I’m going to other countries, I’m going to do my own music. But I have to say the musicians who impress me most are the South American musicians from Buenos Aires. They have some really fine musicians down there. Not all of them, you know but the ones who had really studied the music and really researched everything, they really tend to be, not authentic but they get as close as I’ve heard. They really, really appreciate it. When I travel to other counties, they love the blues. And it’s not like that in the States, in the States it’s really hard… There’s hardly any place […]

This Saturday July 19th at the Evergreen Cultural Centre, Music on the Grill continues with Carli and Julie Kennedy, rising stars on the Canadian country scene. For six years, Music on the Grill has given lovers or great entertainment a chance to relax, enjoy the summer breeze and feast on great barbecue with some of the world’s most accomplished musicians in blues, folk, jazz and country. The last Music on the Grill evening sold out, so be sure to get your tickets while you can! With a mixture of folk, country, jazz and even classical music, Carli and Julie Kennedy embody everything Music on the Grill is about. Their acoustic stylings and beautiful duets will remind remind fans of some of their favourite female performers in country music, with a refreshing twist. We had a chance to sit down with Carli and Julie over the phone from their home on Vancouver Island. As you might imagine, speaking to identical twins with almost identical voices on the phone can get a bit confusing, especially since, as sisters who work and live together do, they are prone to finishing each other’s sentences. With that in mind, their similar vocals might make for tough journalism, but they make for excellent harmonies… On growing up with music and learning their craft… Carli: We had lots of music in our house all the time, my dad grew up playing in bands and he plays guitar and sings and my parents have lots of jam nights with our friends over playing music together. I think that’s what first instilled the love of music in us for sure, and I mean from the time we could talk, we have family videos of us at 3 years old putting on shows in the living room. I think my parents said they knew early on that we were going to be performers. The music thing was always part of the Kennedy family so as soon as we turned 5, we started taking piano lessons and we didn’t look back. On performing in front of bigger and bigger crowds… Carli: Every performer, it depends on the night, gets nervous sometime. We like to call it “being excited” because it really is the fun time for us and we love sharing our music with audiences and we love being on stage. Of course sometimes we get nervous but mostly, it’s a lot of fun for us. Julie: When you’re touring you’re on the stage so much you get used to the excitement and if the adrenaline isn’t there you kind of miss it. I’ve had nights when I’ve wished I was a little bit nervous so it gives you this excitement. Athletes say that to before a competition, you want the adrenaline to fuel you. On their unique brand of country, jazz and classical music… Carli: We call it “Classical Country” so that’s us. Because we started out playing with our family we had family jams with mostly country music and folk tunes and that was our introduction to music and that’s our true roots. We took music lessons, we were mostly studying classical music and we did our Bachelor’s degree in classical music in the University of Victoria, so now we’re back to country. So in this show you’ll get a little taste of everything. On their inspiration and giving fans what they want… Julie: Our history and study of music has been a big part of everything we grew up listening to, it all combines to what we create now and what become our show. Another big influence is our audience and our fans because were really involved online and we have a dedicated fan base on Twitter and Facebook and we’ve been spending the last 2-3 years touring all over Canada and the States. We gain feedback and what people say to us is that they just love this unique combination, the little bit of classical and jazz that you throw into our country show, so we kept throwing into that because that’s what people enjoy in our shows. We’ve actually arranged a special tunes where people can come up and request specific songs, I know that some of the people have asked for a tune a while ago will hopefully be there so we can fulfill their request. Carli: [A two way communication] is what music is, you want to be involved and feel like you’re part of the show. All of our fans and listeners, they become friends to us. In ever city we visit, we build that relationship and it’s a pretty special thing to build a community everywhere you visit. We have this responsibility to keep fulfilling the requests. Julie: We want to have an open conversation, we want to talk about things that matter to us, our family, love, small town roots. We all live in BC and we all know it’s the most beautiful place in the world and that influences our music because we’re west coast girls and we want to sing about our experience. If we can have a shared experience with people who are listening and they can relate to that, that’s the goal. On performing together and keeping it in the family… Julie: We started out in a family band in our hometown playing together and that was our true introduction to being musicians. We performed in every community event, my dad and mom and us carted around the music gear and we learned the behind the scene real quick. Carli and I were totally hooked. Carli: We never questioned it, we realize how lucky we are to always have known what we want to do. We always knew music was going to be our career, we didn’t know exactly how it would turn out. As I said we went to university and studied classical and absolutely love that style of music and love where that took us. We had a lot of years of each of us working individually […]
Friday and Saturday night, July 5th & 6th, the Evergreen Cultural Centre and Greenline Dental present the first section of Music on the Grill; a fantastic evening of live music and great barbecue right here in Coquitlam. Music on the Grill is one of Coquitlam’s most popular summer events and Friday’s first show is already sold out. A second show was added Saturday evening, so check for tickets here. This year Babe Gurr opens for Jim Byrnes in what promises to be an unforgettable evening out for lovers of blues and folk music. We got to chat with Babe and Jim to discuss their passion for music and their latest work. Babe Gurr Babe Gurr is the opening act at this year’s Music on the Grill. Her sultry voice and unique writing are influenced by blues and folk spliced creatively with influence from Spanish, Italian, Middle-Eastern and Brazilian music to name a few. We talked with Babe on the phone about her upcoming album Side Dish, her influences and what fans can expect from her performance at Evergreen Cultural Centre this weekend. On how Babe found her love for music… “I just started to really appreciate music at a young age, my parents aren’t musicians but they are avid fans of music and so I grew up listening to a lot of their jazz albums but then of course ventured into rock and roll myself, and then it evolved from there into all types of music and bands that I played in.” On what influences and inspires her writing… “I’d say the inspiration I draw from so many variety of things in my life, it can be about my own life, it can be drawn from books I’m reading, from even a TV show for example I have a song on my new album called “the whip” and it was actually inspired by the show “House of Cards” its a brilliant show. “ On her unique combination of music styles… “When I was learning the ropes of the music industry I played in all types of bands before I started writing my own music. It isn’t truly a conscious effort, I just write from my heart and I love all types of music or most types of music. I think a lot of the world beats have come from my travels because I’ve travelled a lot and I’m always fascinated with the music of the country that I’m in and the rhythm inspires me a lot and I think (the album) Side Dish was inspired by that… I’ve also been to Spain and all over Europe but I was recently in Turkey and that inspired the more middle-eastern rhythms and then I would throw in some tunes that are sometimes pulling from the more Klezmer-style (Yiddish-style) of music too. I think music in a melting pot for the world to embrace and I think it breaks down all boundaries and borders and that’s why I like blending styles. On her last album, Side Dish… “It actually came about through wanting to learn a song in Italian just for fun because I was doing a lot of folk festivals that particular summer and I thought I would through an Italian song just for a kick. So I played an Italian song and people were asking for more of that style and then they’re saying you should do like that and put an album out. I thought well, my sound was more blues/roots but if I put an album called Side Dish, which means it’s a kind of a side dish to my entrée which is the roots/blues-y pop sound then I’ve got this side dish of world beats I could pull it off and get away with it. And then it turned out that it’s gone over really well and people are really liking when I disperse my normal roots-y sound with these tunes. I think if you play one style all night sometimes it can get a little boring for people and maybe there are people of different ethnicities sitting in the audience and they appreciate hearing something that reminds them of home.” On her new album, Hearts Up To The Sun… “[The new album] is a different game, it pulls more from the blues-y stuff and I’ve got a lot of horns on it. I’ve always used horns here and there throughout my music. It has a slightly different direction, although its still me, there’s a consistent thread from one album to another, I think it’s my melody and my voice. It’s going to be called Hearts Up To The Sun. It’s a derivative of a song on the album called Throw Your Hearts Up To The Sun, but that was too long of a name. It’s a song that based on telling a friend that’s having a tough time that we’re going to go away and go to a nice sunny vacation. I’ve fallen in love with California and I visit there often and I love what the sun can do to your spirit. I love the west coast but the rain gets to me after a while…” On Music on the Grill… “I’ve done [Music on the Grill] before, about 3 years back and it was a fun experience and they asked us to do it again and we said yes. It was a great time and a nice audience… I’ll be coming with a great group, not my full band but I often play with this quartet. David Sinclair will be playing guitar. He’s really quite amazing, he’s played with K.D. Lang and toured with Sarah McLachlan and Tom Neville will be on violin and bass and Nick Apivor will be playing on percussion and maybe some keyboard… I will play 5 tunes off the new CD (Hearts Up To The Sun) and mix it up a bit with some tunes from Side Dish as well.” Find out More About Babe Gurr’s upcoming shows Here.
