The Blue Stones
The Blue Stones provide a wall-of-sound full of vibrant, garage-band tones while sticking true to their blues, jazz, and soul influences; all while leaving audiences questioning: \"Were there really just two guys up there?\"
We aim to move, invigorate, and influence audiences both on and off stage!
Hailing from Windsor, Ontario, The Blue Stones duo provide an edgy blues rock sound with accompanying alternative rock accents. Vocalist/guitarist Tarek Jafar and percussionist Justin Tessier have been playing the southwestern Ontario circuit for around two years and have achieved critical acclaim after their debut EP release, “The Blue Stones”, which has been available since March 2011. They are currently working on their new EP slated for release in the fall of 2012!
They’ve played acts in Windsor, London, Chatham, Toronto, Oshawa, Peterborough and Hamilton Ontario; as well as playing acts in Michigan, USA. They’ve also been featured at Canadian Music Week 2012; NXNE 2012; annually since 2010 at FAM Fest; Shores of Erie Winefest 2012 and the Orangeville Blues & Jazz Fest 2012.
In the last year, The Blue Stones have opened for acts such as The Stone Foxes, Michou, Current Swell, Justin Nozuka, Fitz and The Tantrums, Joel Plaskett & The Emergency and more.
