Relying on craft, not gimmick, James McKenty and The Spades are a high-energy band who draw musical inspiration from classic Rock'n'Roll and infuse it with a youthful vibrancy which is all their own. Formed in 2002, the trio of James McKenty (vox/guitar), Winchester Street (drums), and Chachi Robichaud (bass) deliver a solid, vigorous live show which excites audiences and critics across the country. Blending infectious rhythms, vocal harmonies, and skillful, soaring guitar,to create a seamless sound which belies their age. With producer Gord Sinclair (Tragically Hip), JMATS worked on capturing a live, raw sound at The Hip's Bathouse Studio for their debut album" Burning on Fumes" , Released August of 2004. Growing up out of the fertile music community of Peterborough Ontario , the band's members have played and recorded with some of Canada's leading musicians, including The Sadies, The Silver Hearts, and The Tragically Hip. They are influenced by the music which surrounds them; their community and friends as well as the larger Canadian scene. JMATS in 2004 opened for The Tragically Hip twice playing in front of crowds of 15,000+ in Sarnia and also being part of "Across The Causeway" in Kingston!.As well as opening for The Hip, JMATS have shared bills with such Great Canadian Artist's such as Matt Mays, Cuff The Duke, Jim Cuddy, Matthew Barber, Matthew Good Band, Wide Mouth Mason, Joel Plaskett, Brothers in Stereo, The Golden Dogs, The Sadies, The Trews, Hugh Dillon Redemption Choir, April Wine and International artist's Seether and The Blind Boys of Alabama...

LOL thats a hilarious shot!

The Spades are on their game lately, and I hope they get a good turnout in the Hammer. Two Thursdays ago they had two special guests onstage for most of the show: Travis Good (The Sadies) and Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo), and the show was really amazing.

This will be the best $5 you ever spend!

ps - Hey kc, was it you who tried to book Travis Good & The Rising Sons? They mentioned something along those lines from the stage this past Thursday.
