Angele & the Swingin’ Devils perform not only original tunes and cover their favourite jazz standards, but this band has the ability to move a crowd by playing the jazz arrangements of Led Zeppelin, Prince, Marvin Gaye, Jackson 5 and many others. The band combines a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and histories: these are reflected in their eclectic sounds.
Vocalist Angele Ramsden has been singing various genres for over 15 years. She is currently promoting a coast-to-coast recording of jazz standards and originals. Her debut album Singularity was nominated for Best Album by a Solo Artist at the Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards gala.
Greg Stone is a professional guitarist, band leader, music educator and arranger with vast experience and an eye for detail. Greg’s versatility, flare, and style add great colour to standards and favourites.
Peter MacGibbon has over 20 years of experience performing for audiences from 20,000 concert goers to the most intimate cafes and bistros. Solid as a freight train, soothing as a heartbeat, Peter’s fabulously funky bass sounds provide the pulse for every show, event, or occasion. The Swingin’ Devils are occasionally joined by other instrumentalists, as they will be in Merrickville.
Angele & the Swingin’ Devils have played many jazz venues in the Ottawa/Gatineau area including Vineyards, Options Jazz Lounge and the Chelsea Pub. They have also performed at larger corporate events in the region as well as at the Ottawa Jazz Festival in 2011 and 2013 .
