Biography

Jerome Godboo has electrified audiences of all sizes. He headlined at the Montreal Jazz Festival (2005) and Mt. Tremblant in (2009). He played the Toronto Air Canada Centre with Ronnie Hawkins. He played to a record-breaking crowd at the Montreal Jazz Festival (2004) and another 30,000 at Canada Day festivities with Jimmy Bowskill. Jerome wowed the crowd at the Vancouver and Victoria Jazz Festivals with Reuben Cherry.

Jerome's network television appearances include CTV's Open Mike and Canada A.M., Much Music, City TV's Toronto Rocks and Breakfast Television, Global's News at Noon, CBC's Zed, TVO's Planet Parent, and In Session. He's also been showcased at Moses Znaimer's Idea City and on numerous radio shows.

The 2010 release of “Rooting Out My Devils” saw producer Alec Fraser (Jeff Healey) come from the brink of death to beating out authentic pounding grooves on his bass. Alec guided the bands natural sense of blues, zydeco and swing and rocked it into funky new originals. Ambiance and delectable food inspired the musicians Al Cross (Big Sugar), Eric Schenkman (Spin Doctors), Shawn Kellerman (Lucky Peterson), Steve Pelletier (Sass Jordan) and Pat Rush (Johnny Winter, Jeff Healey, James Cotton) to fill Liquid Toronto with energetic playing and musical abundance.

Godboo performs regularly around Ontario, and is now in his second year hosting Thursday nights at the Delta Chelsea Hotel in Toronto.
