Philadelphia has been the home of many music legends like Boyz II Men, The Roots, Chubby Checker, Jill Scott and Patti Labelle. Philly’s got soul. Jerome Tucker has that soul embedded in him. He is a lead singer/bass player who joined the US Navy as an electronics instructor and ended up moonlighting as a musician playing for various blues and Cajun bands throughout the Gulf Coast.
He calls Toronto home, along with his band members: Carl Harvey (Toots and the Maytalls, Crack of Dawn, and Messenjah) on guitar; Rob Christian on sax, flute and keys; Kingsley Etienne on B3; Neil Brathwaite (Jack Soul) on sax; and Rich Greenspoon (Betty and the Bobs, Oliver Shorer) on drums. The result is a polished explosion of tight funky soulful blues.
