The Pistolettes (Hamilton, ON) featuring Ginger St James, Justine Fischer and Mary Simon.
With her sultry and powerful voice, her sassy and commanding stage presence, and a repertoire that blends country, rock n’ roll and blues, Ginger St James packs a lot of entertainment into her 5-foot frame. A born entertainer, Ginger began writing songs and telling jokes at 3 years old and was inspired by watching musicals, cabaret and listening to Big Band 8 tracks at Nanny and Granddad’s. Feeling the most “in her own skin” expressing herself musically, Ginger began writing tongue-in-cheek songs that were entertaining lyrically as well and visually and musically.
Mary Simon's formula is time-tested and simple. With five albums behind her, the Hamilton singer/songwriter's powerful voice and vision have contributed to years of touring and creative explorations. She describes her sound as “gritty roots rock”, which draws fans from North and South of the border. With a certain je ne c’est quois of lyrical sensibility, melodic composition and timeless storytelling, you will want to invite her back, or better yet never have her leave.
Justine Fischer is no stranger to the stage with a history of touring with many artists past and present including Matty Simpson, Logan Staats and Spencer Mackenzie. Not only does she rock her unique electric stand up bass, but she also adds killer harmonies and even brings out her accordion for some tunes.
Combine together the sassy and outspoken Ginger St James, the feisty and boisterous Mary Simon and the sultry Justine Fischer, and you can be sure there'll be some hoot'n hollering from this trio. Mix in strong 3 part harmonies, duelling guitars and stand up bass and you'll want to fire a round!
