We’ve written a few times over the past several years about jams hosted by effervescent and engaging singer Kimberley Wetmore and her band anchored by versatile and vigorous guitarist Dave Girdlestone.

After a couple of years hosting a fairly regular every-other-Thursday jam at Roc’n’ Doc’s in Port Credit, back in early 2014 the group was shifted from that to run a weekly Mondays affair, which unfortunately, as we reported in October of that year, only lasted eight months.

But of course the group also plays plenty of other shows, including frequent gigs at other rooms in Mississauga and Halton Region and most of which, one way or another, seem keep ending up being jams.

That’s also been the case, I’m told, for the every-other Thursdays on which they’ve been featured at Timothy’s Pub on Brown’s Line in Etobicoke since the beginning of this year. It must be going well because the shows are booked on the club’s calendar through till the end of the year.

These Thursday events will remind many long-time readers of the jams that Kimberley and Dave used to run back in 2007 and 2008 in west Mississauga’s Erindale area and no doubt many of the roster of stellar talents who used to attend them and the Thursday jams in Port Credit are now making the trip to Timothy’s to take part in these ones. You can’t keep troupers like this down for long!
