Jimmy and the Sleepers

Based in Edmonton, Alberta-Jimmy and the Sleepers are a gritty, no-nonsense, genuine house rockin' blues band that has been making a splash on the Western Canadian blues scene. Since the release of their self-titled CD, Jimmy and the Sleepers have been smoldering, mostly underground, but are more ready than ever to burn out of the frozen Alberta north and showcase their Edmonton-styled blues to the world.

For years, Edmonton has had a modest, but reverent blues scene which has fostered a blues sound perhaps a little more traditional. Maybe its those long, cold Canadian Prairie winters whose bone-chillin' winds blow like that off Lake Michigan, whose winds chilled Chicago in the early days of electric blues. Whatever it is, the blues is alive in Edmonton and Jimmy and the Sleepers are disciples of the sound and dedicated to it's roots.

Unofficially, the group has been performing together for years as the backup band of choice for an impressive list of blues artists from across the U.S. and Canada. Backing such artists as Lazy Lester, Jody Williams, (Howlin' Wolf) James Harman, Larry Garner, Jimmy Burns, Little Mike, and Big Dave McLean, (to name only a few) they have honed their skills as sidemen and are ready to contribute their own confident, edgy sound.

Led by veteran blues guitarist Jimmy Guiboche, the band is poised and ready to support their latest release which has been praised by listeners and critics alike, and has had regular play on CBC, CKUA, Galaxie, college radio, along with modest radio play in Europe.
