Fog City Blues: Blonde Toledo At Home


Blonde Toledo plays Mambo Rock with a Klezmer Twist -- a good tagline, but only part of the story

The band is led by double-sax Goddess Connie Walkershaw, who has developed a unique style, more melodically based, rather than riff oriented. Acting as her comedic foil, bass player Jesse Walkershaw writes the half of Blonde Toledo's material that has words. Like all of us the duo has been sheltering in place since mid-March, but that hasn't stopped them from making music. Connie and Jessie join host Devon Strolovitch live from their respective shleters this Wednesday May 13 at 10 pm for a special #StayAtHome session.
