Tony Flaim

Tony Flaim was an amazing blues singer in Canada. I photographed him in Vancouver when he was singing with the Downchild Blues Band out of Toronto. The band had a 1973 hit record with Flip, Flop and Fly written by Big Joe Turner and Charlie Calhoun in the mid-fifties and continue to play across Canada.

This is the only video I found with a live performance by Tony Flaim with the Kendall Wall Band.

 
 

This is a very short promo for Downchild's documentary. Putting it here because the splash frame is a photograph I loaned to the movie...still waiting for the copy I was promised.
