The Spandettes are not your average girl group.
The Spandettes are powerful and exciting vocal trio supported by a fiercely energetic 7-piece band. Their original music combines a classic 70’s soul-boogie approach with a fresh contemporary perspective drawing inspiration from disco, funk, dance pop, reggae, jazz and soul. Their songs come to life with 3-piece horn arrangements, and unique vocal harmonies crafted by the leading ladies of the band, Alex Tait, Maggie Hopkins, and Lizzy Clarke. This is not your typical girl group! These three unique front-women not only lead the band vocally, they also run the business end and compose most of the music.
Their much-anticipated sophomore album, Sequin Sunrise, was made with heavyweight producer, Justin Abedin, and released in Japan in August 2015 on their Japanese label P-Vine, Inc. Records to rave reviews. Like their performances, the album transports listeners to a place where it’s always summer and the sequins are plentiful.
CBC’s Errol Nazareth called Spandex Effect “... Energetic, playful, Danceable and topped with three-part harmonies.... it’s is a great soundtrack to summer.” Spandex Effect received substantial radio play in Japan, the U.K., Australia, and South America.
The Spandettes have been performing acclaimed live shows since 2008 and have continued to pack the dance floor in many of Toronto’s great live music venues.
