What Makes The BlueSual Suspects Stand Apart

Live music is something that has often and continually been the highlight of the party. When it comes to bands in Toronto, The BlueSual Suspects take center stage. But it takes more than just a good voice and a great band to not only make it in the industry, but also to be able to turn a special event into a truly unforgettable experience.


What we mean when we say “quality” is a group of individuals who have worked together for a long time, and know their craft – Rick Precious, Kimberley Wetmore, and others have spent years honing their musical talents in a wide array of different genres and venues in one of the most popular bands in Toronto. This has given them a unique perspective when it comes to captivating an audience. As seen and heard in the video recordings of their performances, you can see how they stand out from other bands.


This has a lot more to do with how well a band gets along – all the members of this band, by necessity of working together in one of the most stylish bands in Toronto have developed a strong working relationship. And it comes out in their showmanship.

Each band member has a number of instruments that they specialize in – whether it’s Jeff Mandell on drums, or Jeff Speziale on bass and vocals – and each of them contribute their own particular flavor to the band’s music. As a result, each of them has over time, developed their own moniker within the band, with aliases like ‘The Machine’, ‘The Arranger’, or ‘The Professor’. Needless to say, their wry humour and amusing antics in between numbers is a direct reflection of their love of the job, something other bands in Toronto can’t hold a candle to.


Part of their charm is the kind of energy that they can bring to a venue. Whether it’s handling the potentially awkward escapades of guests, serenading the bride and groom on their first dance, or just keeping the atmosphere with a carefully selected arrangement of songs, clients have continually commented on their reliability when it comes to making the whole event experience one that is positive, memorable, and unforgettable.
