Jim Dan Dee ” The Blues for a New Generation”

Jim Dan Dee is a Toronto-based/Canadian Blues Band. Their name comes from an old saying meaning “everything is just fine”,
Everything is Jim Dan Dee”. If you asked me I  would say that nothing about these guys is only “just fine” though. Now that I have met and listened to this group When saying Everything is Jim Dan Dee now. To Me, it means “Everything is Fantastic” Or Everything Sounds Sooooth, or Everything Makes Me Want to Listen to Jim Dan Dee. 

Jim Dan Dee’s frontman and Drummer have been playing together for years. They were both in a Rock Band prior for a number of years prior to forming Jim Dan Dee. When that band ran its course Lead singer Jim Stefanuk told friend and band bandmate Shawn Royal my hear has always laid in The Blues. That idea combined with that statement…

NOW  EVERYTHING IS JIM DAN DEE!

Jim Dan Dee’s players are from diverse musical backgrounds are clearly Bluesmen now. When I asked them what style there music is. They promptly answered it is “Bourbon Fuelled Motown Blues”. That description sounded very traditional when they said it. That description sounded like a type of music from the deep south, not the frigid North. But listening to them play, well it just does not matter what their music is called or where it came from geographically it is simply World Class. I think it important to say that these guys are writing The Blues for 2019 Today. They are our generation of Bluesmen.

It was so much fun hanging out with this group of great guys: Co-Founder Frontman Jim Stefanuk, On Sax: Bobby Sewerynek, Bass Guitar: Brian McCarthy, and Co-founder Drummer: Shawn Royal. If you haven’t seen them live yet I suggest getting to a show and buying then a round of Bourbon… They might just become your new favorite band I am sure they will play for you.

We have included a video of Jim Dan Dee live at Cherry Colas Rock n Roll Cabaret and Lounge.

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.
