ron Burke & Alittle voodoo

In late 1992, Calgary based Alittle Voodoo was  formed, quickly heading out on tour to perform across western Canada.

In 1993 the group recorded their first CD, a self titled live recording captured over three rockin’ nights in Banff’s Legendary club the Rose and Crown.

In 1994, Alittle Voodoo hit the road again, touring with blues/rock acts: Colin James, the late Jeff Healey, The Headstones, Paul Rodgers, Long John Baldry, David Gogo, Omar and the Howlers and a host of others.

Alittle Voodoo tore down the house in 2006 as the opening act in Calgary for the late Bo Diddley, and backed him as his band.

Alittle Voodoo is led by frontman and guitar mauler, Ron Burke.  Ron’s distinct sound has been loved by fans for decades, with shades of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Johnny Winters oozing through. Ron’s punchy vocals complete his sound.

Bassist Tom Knowles, who began playing with the late, great Long John Baldry, has also shared the stage with other music legends such as Jimmy Page, Tom Jones, Crowbar, Kathi McDonald,and Blue Cheer.

Rob Vulic fills out the trio on drums, and multiple Juno award0-winning producer and co-writer of much of Alittle Voodoo’s latest album, Russell Broom, joins the band every chance he can!

In 1994, the band was recognized with Best Band of the Year, with Ron also taking the honours as Best Male Vocalist and Best Guitar Player at the CJ92 awards.

After a hiatus in the music scene- Ron Burke and Alittle Voodoo have re-emerged with a new studio album, Love Lies and Could Be’s.  Ron was  inducted into the 2010 Calgary Blues Music Hall of Fame as GUITAR PLAYER of the Year and bassist Tom Knowles repeated his 2009 win with the 2010 honour as BASS PLAYER of the Year.
