Casey Ryder’s music defies categorization. The talented, multi-instrumentalist’s latest CD, the surprise-filled and wide-ranging Here showcases Ryder’s unique, versatile multiformity. He’s a musical vagabond whose idiosyncratic, original songs use a variety of styles from swampy rockabilly, to gypsy swing, to twisted, Brechtian ballads and beyond.
A fixture on Victoria’s music scene for almost two decades, Ryder has established a reputation for fun-filled, improvisational excellence in numerous bands and musical forms, most notably in his award-winning quartet, The Swingin’ Bachelors. Formed in 1998, The Bachelors played regularly at pubs, clubs and music festivals, but that band had too many stylistic limitations and Casey disbanded the group. Currently, his focus in on leading the Casey Ryder Trio and his Django Reinhardt-inspired gypsy jazz quartet, Casey Ryder & Twango.

SLIM SANDY loves to strum his guitar, blow the harp and stomp the beat! He plays a combination of his own compositions and rockabilly or country blues songs from the late 40’s and early 50’s. “Slim” was the original drummer for Ray Condo, from 1985-1994, and has been the lead singer and rhythm guitarist with the Crazy Rhythm Daddies since 1988. Other acts he’s backed up on drums include the Howlin’ Hound Dogs, Sophia Wolff and SUN Records legend, Billy Lee Riley. “Slim” can be seen singing the country blues in his hometown of Victoria, Bristish Columbia!
