the TONETTES (aka T3)
Marlene O’Neill ~ Amoy Levy ~ Cathy Borges
~ a trio comprised of some of Canada’s most experienced vocalists
Marlene, Amoy and Cathy have been blessed with the ability to deliver
sweet, unparalleled harmonies! ~Est 2007
Individually, Marlene, Amoy and Cathy have many years of experience working in a multitude of venues - big and small. Each member of this trio comes from a rich family heritage of Gospel music that they embrace whole-heartedly.
Collectively - since 2007 Based in Toronto, Ontario Canada, the Tonettes bring together their individual knowledge of the vocal craft obtained by literally decades of experience and traditional music schooling. Their goal is to always, without exception, deliver top-notch vocal harmonies on stage resulting in a powerful presentation of music. All three are rooted in the vocal stylings of Church Gospel music and currently perform vocal styles that include Gospel, Country, Jazz, Soul, Blues and Rock. They endeavour to put everything they have into each performance whether vocally supporting another artist or head-lining an event themselves with their unique harmony.
The Tonettes currently enjoy sharing the stage with long-standing, award-winning ETA Pete Paquette. They provide powerful background vocals along with their own solo spots while currently touring coast-to-coast across Canada; bringing Elvis’ timeless music to thousands of fans yearly! Amongst a vast variety of other shows, studio sessions, conferences, etc., T3 is also selling out theatres while headlining their own show, titled Motown-Soul (produced by Paquette Productions).
T3 are kept very busy providing background vocals for several different ETAs on several different stages for three full days at the annual Collingwood Elvis Festival held in July. Their fantastic harmony lends support and compliments some of the world’s most sought-after ETAs at this yearly event.
The Tonettes currently have released two CDs. Their first is a self-titled 5-song EP of Gospel music. Their second release is titled “Heart n Soul” and includes 11 of their favourite Motown hits from days-gone-by.
