Original modern blues with a rockin’ party groove!
The waterstreet blues band delivers original modern blues with a rockin’ party groove - and a side order of Louisiana Spice! They recently released a new album “Talkin’ About” which is garnering favourable reviews and radio play throughout Canada, US and Europe.
Waterstreet Blues Band were finalists in the 2020 International Blues & Roots Songwriting Competition, performed at every major blues festival in Ontario and shared the stage with local and national blues luminaries.

They bring audiences music that gets the party started – always rooted in the blues.

“A four on the floor party band that knows their way around amped up blues and roots. The party spirit jumps off the disc and swirls around your ear in high octane style. One of those certified party on a platter discs." -Midwest Record Entertainment, Lake Zurich, Illinois USA, January 2022
“This is the sound of five talented musicians strapping up and going for broke. Talkin’ About achieves an effortless vintage grace and has a gritty suaveness that’s hard to resist.” -Hot Wax Album Reviews by the Rock Doctor, BC Canada, January 2022
”The band has two beautiful voices, three strong songwriters and bring blues in different styles from a rockin’ party groove to a gritty roots vibe, a haunting ballad to jumpin’ swing or a spicy Latin rhythm.” -Concert Monkey, Walter Vanheuckelom, Belgium, February 2022
“Their adaptation of "Miles To Go" by Samantha Fish opts for a slide on Resonator and a rockabilly beat, to which the singing of Silvia Dee imprints its sexy touch, equidistant between Wanda Jackson and Sue Foley... A highly invigorating album!” Paris-Move Blues Magazine, Patrick Dallongeville, France, January 2022
“With vocals conjuring a youthful Maria Muldaur, keyboardist/accordionist Silvia Dee provides standout moments…[including on] the group-penned “Don’t Stop” and the particularly atmospheric “Riverside Child” - Roots Music Report, Duane Verh, Moab, Utah USA , January, 2022
“Choice cuts on Talkin About include the driving title track, the raw blues rocker about the ideal woman "Vodka Drinkin Woman"; the retro blues shuffle "Laugh To Keep From Cryin'", two tracks featuring Silvia Dee's smoky sultry vocals "Riverside Child" and "Walked Away. The gorgeous gem of a song with a hopeful Holiday message "Baby Be Strong" closes out the disc.” Best of Western New York Entertainment USA www.bestofwny.com February 1, 2022
"A highlight is “Laugh to Keep From Cryin’,” a song—with impressive lead guitar features—that sounds from another era, as is the slow-burning “Mean Vicious Woman.” Covers of Tom Waits (“Temptation”) and Samantha Fish (“Miles to Go”) round out a set of ten songs that are sure to keep the party moving. Silvia Dee’s lead vocals are a highlight, and a fine complement to the rough ‘n tumble take that Paul Sapounzi offers on his lead turns. Good time music to be had here.
