Alexis P. Suter and her band rocked the Simcoe Street Theatre Saturday in a Violet's Venue production with two electrifying sets showing how powerful Blues for Brooklyn can sound.

Influenced by the likes BB King, Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle, the greatest influence on her young career was her mother, Carrie Suter, who sang with Harry Belafonte, Dionne Warwick and Quincy Jones, among others.

Starting off as so many Blues vocalists do in her church choir, Suter made a continuous effort to broaden her musical horizons. Her first official recording was the dance song, Slam Me Baby, released in 1990. From there she continued her move towards the Blues, and eventually gained prominence at Levon Helm’s famed Midnight Rambles, performing there more than 100 times.
