First Listen: Roger Chong - Funkalicious

Friday, 17 June 2016 14:37

First Listen is sponsored by Bay Bloor Radio - The Right Sound For the Right Price.

Toronto guitarist and educator Roger Chong has a new recording out called Funkalicious.

It was recorded earlier this year in Markham, and features Roger’s Quartet: Paul Mason on keyboards, Ken MacDonald on bass and Steve Farrugia on drums.  The album was financed through a GoFundMe campaign that raised $5,000 towards the recording and release of the new disc.

Roger and the group will be hitting the road this summer to support the record, including a gig at The Rex on August 10th.

Here is your First Listen for June 17, "Ba-Dum."
