the unknown side of what's bumpin' in the trucks

Nothing like this…

So far, these are the only pics I’ve seen proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that Omar Lye-Fook performed at Jello Bar in Montreal last week. Thanks Maude. He’s seen here with backup singers Fredy V and Sharon Brooks, who along with the Black Soil Band, sat in as Omar’s backup, making for a tight little show. I’ve waited about 10 years for a chance to check out this soul king in my own backyard, and I was happy to be right up front taking it all in. Although the show was great, I can’t wait until the spring when Omar will hopefully return to Montreal for a PROPER live show with PROPER sound in a PROPER venue. Apparently he has a 9 piece band from London that usually backs him up, and if all goes well, they will be here too. You can check out Erin Macleod‘s article about Omar in the Montreal Mirror, here.
