Ria Reece Band and Quinn Bonnell
From the Promoter
Latching onto the guitar at a young age, Quinn Bonnell of Burnt Church uses his fantastic instrumental ability to combine singer-songwriter stylings with blues and folk on much anticipated upcoming EP, The Night. Prior to penning his first offering, the song “I Don’t Mind,” Bonnell was a dedicated guitar player for multiple cover bands. With a number of short runs in groups from within Miramichi under his belt, he decided to embark on his own musical endeavours, drawing influences from artists ranging from John Mayer, Kings Of Leon, Radiohead and Gary Clark Jr. Completing his degree in Fredericton, Bonnell decided to bridge the gap between being an artist and a performer in 2015, by bringing his music to the stage. The Night features a driving rhythm section, steady, on-the-nose vocals and Bonnell’s masterful guitar work; he is a welcome addition to the local scene.
Ria Reece Band
The Ria Reece Band can best be described as ‘’Soul Rock’’, heavily rooted in Blues and Classic R&B. Powerful and Soulful, Ria’s haunting vocals take center stage. Working out of Montreal, the band’s regular line up includes guitar, B3 / Rhodes, bass and drums.
The Ria Reece Band’s second album, ‘’Out All Night’’, released on October 5th 2015, was especially popular on campus / community radio, making Earshot’s ‘’Top 200’’ as well as charting among the ‘’Folk/Roots/Blues Top10’’, the ‘’Hip Hop Top10’’, and ‘’Top30’’ on several stations all across Canada. The album was also on daily rotation throughout 2016 on Stingray Radio via cable TV and on regular rotation at DAWG.FM in Ottawa. ‘’Out All Night’’ features a guest performance by Maple Blues Award winning harmonica player Guy Bélanger.
