The Sonny Balcones

The Sonny Balcones bring together the talents of some of Toronto's great jazz musicians, playing familiar tunes with their own unique style. The band was formed in 2015 by guitarist/singer Tony Neale and singer Corry Ouellette, following their work together in The Sandy Pockets and The Julee Cruise Ships, a tribute to Twin Peaks. Alongside Rachel Melas on bass, featuring Robert Stevenson on clarinet and Conny Nowe on drums, this group has honed a sound that is both quirky and romantic. Think of Chet Baker and Julie London singing a heartbreaking song followed by a modern day Ruth Etting and top it off with a bit of Joao Gilberto.
