Since forming in 1998 Toronto based blues heroes Raoul and The Big Time have forged a musical direction described by Now Magazine as “an eclectic and learned combination of ‘Toronto/Chicago/Hollywood Blues’… a seriously credible homage to the classic school”. With the release of BIG TIME BLUES (2000) and COLD OUTSIDE (2004) they have broadened their fan base at home and abroad with international distribution along with a hit video for BABY DON’T STOP one of the Top 10 on BRAVO in 2005. They have appeared on television nationwide and have opened for blues legends like Buddy Guy, Bobby “Blue” Bland and The Downchild Blues Band. Festival appearances include The Salmon Arts Roots and Blues, Harbourfront, Beaches International Jazz, Mont Tremblant Blues, Southside Shuffle, Canal Bank Shuffle, Hillebrand Estates, JVC Jazz, Downtown Jazz and many more. In October 2009, Raoul made his US debut at Café Boogaloo in Los Angeles with L.A. Blues All Stars, Rick Holmstrom, Jeff Turmes and Steve Mugalian.

Fronted by the multi talented actor/musician Raoul Bhaneja, known to audiences around the world for both his touring theatre success HAMLET (solo) and numerous film and television credits (The Sentinel, Ararat, Train 48) the band consists of veteran founding members Darren Gallen on guitar (David Rotundo, Michael Pickett), Tom Bona on drums (Sue Foley, Bourbon Tabernacle Choir) and legendary upright bass player Terry Wilkins (Rough Trade, Big Sugar, Levon Helm). For the 2010 Festival season The Big Time are also offering an eight piece version of the band including horns and piano.

YOU MY PEOPLE features 13 songs, the majority penned by Bhaneja who also has co-written two songs with Wilkins and one with rising Toronto soul queen Treasa Lavesseur. Other local connections include the song One Card Trump by Juno nominee Elizabeth Shepard and Born To Love by Governor General Award wining playwright Andrew Moodie. Along with guest appearances from Toronto piano maestro Tyler Yarema and horn players Richard Underhill, Gene Hardy and Howard Moore the disc features Vancouver Gospel sensations The Sojourners and a return by two longtime friends, renowned California blues kingpins Mark Hummel on harmonica and guitar wizard Junior Watson. Andy Grigg of Real Blues Magazine (Victoria B.C) picked YOU MY PEOPLE as #6 out of 100 new releases from around the world.
