- "A refreshingly, alternative musical experience was provided by the Canadian group Andre and The
J-Tones. Not many blues bands have a song list which includes “Do You Love Me,” “On The Road Jack,” and “I Feel Good.” However, a combination of clever arrangements, tasteful guitar work, and exceptionally talented saxophone and trumpet players, contributed to a jazz, pop, and soul fusion sound which the audience loved."
Till the Real Thing Comes Along!

Andre Bisson was given the opportunity to be part of the 1st Episode of James Anthony's new show on Cogeco 23 Burlington/Niagara area. The show is called "James Anthony Presents LIVE!", a new show that allows Hamilton/Niagara musicians come and show their stuff on television. This episode was filmed at The Dutch Mill Market in the Waterdown area. We were honoured to be on the roster with great artists as Harrison Kennedy, Steve Burnside, and the talented musicians of the James Anthony and the "Eh" Team. 4 of Andre's songs were filmed and they will be spread over a few episodes this year.
Here is the first tune "One More Gig" Written by Andre Bisson
