What they're sayin'...

"Smokin' hot blues, jazz and swing that will move your spirit and leave you beggin' for more! Toots sang her heart out while the band behind her rolled out some of the hottest blues heard in these parts in a long time."

~ The Florida Times Union - Jacksonville.com



“She could be nick-named 'Torch Song Toots.' Toots Lorraine & The Traffic deliver up the blues with a strong dose of swing and jazz.”

~ Springing the Blues Festival 2011 - Jacksonville, FL

Band Bio



Toots

Toots brings with her a background of dance, theater and jazz to the rich yet simplistic purity of the blues, creating a vocal presence of powerful elegance. Her singing style is influenced by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Eva Cassidy, Big Mama Thornton and many more. Whether singing original material or drawing from a large repertoire of classic blues and jazz standards, the charming and vivacious Toots tells her story with every note, satisfying listeners, dancers and good times.

Chad Mo'

As co-founder of the band and husband to Toots Lorraine, Chad Mo and his guitar work leads the sound of the band through dynamic avenues of classic blues standards. Whether jump blues, double shuffles or slow swing, Chad Mo commands the art of tension and release paying homage to guitar greats such as T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Duke Robillard and countless others. A crowd pleaser in his own right, he is also the Creative Director and produces all the print, online and digital media.
