Stevie Gee Brings His Groove to The Red Door

Stevie Gee plays a regular Saturday night gig in Newmarket, sometimes on his own and often with sax player Carson Freeman, whom he accompanied when they came to Meaford last August.  This Friday night he’ll be playing solo at The Red Door Grille, the new live music venue at The Meaford Motel.  This is part of a special series of instrumental performers that tend toward jazz and classical sounds.

Stevie Gee’s specialty is the 1940’s style of swing music that won him over when he was a student at The Ontario College of Art.  He credits Ken Whitely for turning him on to this type of music.  After many years in the restaurant business, exploring his passion for music on the side, he formed a band in 2006 called “In The Pocket” and in 2006 he took on music as a full time career.   Since then, in addition to his regular gig in Newmarket, he has kept busy with corporate events and studio efforts.  Along with favourite standards like “Fever” and “Sunny” he intersperses his original songs into his performances.

Here’s a clip of him playing a cover of Sunny, accompanied by sax player Christopher Plock.

Catch his performance this Friday, Jan. 6th from 8 to 11 at The Red Door Grille and Pub, Meaford
