Biography

Since 2000, The Blue Voodoo have played their brand of blues rock at just about every possible venue in Western Canada and Europe. They have grown a fan base around the world in the roots blues genre. After two CD releases and Award nominations from the Toronto Maple Blues Awards in 2003 for Best New Artist and receiving a nomination for Most Outstanding Blues CD at the 2005 and 2007 Western Canadian Music Awards The Blue Voodoo look to add to their booty of nominatons with their upcoming 3rd CD release.

Through-out the last 6 years The Blue Voodoo have brought a level of excitement and energy to the shows they perform unmatched by any other group for some time in The Vancouver Area. Acclaimed as "The Show To See" in this Area by Now Entertainment Columnist Dave Chesney, The Blue Voodoo have revved up their show with a higher octane dynamic powerhouse performance with new material and new faces.
After Touring Europe last February 2006, The Blue Voodoo began retooling their band and spread the word they were looking to grow the group.Ted Tosoff and Rick Dalgarno, the original Voodooheads brought two new faces into the fold by adding Kelly Stodola on Percussion and Gerry Berg on Bass
Drummer Kelly Stodola brings a slamming driving style that elevates the magic of the Blue Voodoo Vibe, coupled with the talented Bass playing of Gerry Berg the New Look Blue Voodoo now has the engine to drive the group to the next level...Watch out, cause the Voodooheads are on the loose. Look for their New CD Back to the Shack.

The Blue Voodoo just reached a MILESTONE-1000
That is 1000 Gigs and six years of performing since their start in 2000. Congrats Boys. And many thousands more shows to come!!!!

Born out of Delta in B.C. Canada, the Blue Voodoo has created their own unique blend of alternative blues-rock, some say it is underground blues and rock. Many Djs say the BV take their brand of music to a different level unmatched by others in this genre.

Ted ' Teddy J' Tosoff - Vocals/Guitars/Voodoo Magic "Old enough to know better, older than I'd wish to share.. Along with family and
friends, music is my Lifeblood. Playing, recording and writing music is all I've really known or cared for. I guess, for me...this thing called The Blue Voodoo is a musical soul cleansing and the sum of all I have done. It's the one thing that pushes me to succeed while keeping the road of life an interesting bit of pavement"

.'Rick 'the devil' Dalgarno - Vocals/Guitar/Voodoo Magic " Right from my first Beatles record, Sgt.Pepper ( the one that my dad played over
and over again ), I knew I'd want to be involved in music. I have been a part of many musical projects, but none have captured the essence that The Blue Voodoo manages to. For me, the Voodoo sound and
appearance lets me be me - if that makes any sense. There is a weird magic in our circle that can only be described as THE VOODOO feeling."

Kelly " The Ogre " Stodola Drums/Percussion/Voodoo Magic - Upon joining The Blue Voodoo I was encouraged to use my own musical freedom and expression . I can definitely view The Blue Voodoo as a band with no fear for pushing it's musical boundaries but still having the ability for penning songs that most can relate to with very little effort . I'm excited to see what musical adventures are in store for us

Gerry Berg-Bass
This group personifies everything there is about what I love about alternative style music and blues rock. Having to keep it all in check playing bass is my passion and the guys are world class players.
