Replay is a hot group of 5 young musicians celebrating current pop, funk and soul. Aptly named, Replay not only performs songs well known and loved by all, but delivers them in such a fresh, spirited way that demands them to be heard again and again!
From the classic songs of Earth Wind & Fire, Sade, Bob Marley, Blondie, Aretha Franklin, Santana, Marvin Gaye, and The Jackson 5, to the great offerings by Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse, Ozzy Osbourne and Cyndi Lauper (just to name a few), audiences can’t resist singing along or rushing to the dance floor with Replay on stage.
Though only in their 20s, their musical prowess belies the group’s vernal years. From their on-the-street know-how performances at venues in Toronto and across Ontario, to their four years of academic training at Humber College under the tutelage of such greats as Rik Emmett, Trish Colter and Pat LaBarbera (Buddy Rich, Elvin Jones), Replay brings both a lively, colourful spontaneity and musical depth to the stage.
Replay started performing in 2004 and features Colin Stewart on guitar, Scott Metcafe on Keys and Stephanie Braganza, who apart from bands, also sang in musicals (Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Godspell), and was invited to be the backup singer for the revered rap artist Belly and Ginuwine at the MuchMusic Video Awards.
