SPECIAL EVENTS THIS WEEK
****************************

Thursday, December 13 @ 8 pm

Featuring Amanda Rheaume, Jeff Rogers, Rebecca Noelle, and Matthew Chaffey.

Get ready for a winter treat that’ll have you partying into the holiday season!
**********
The Emburys
Bar Robo, 692 Somerset Street West
Thursday, December 13; 8-11 pm; $10

You could simply call The Emburys a roots and blues trio out of Peterborough, Ontario, but let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Stage right, you will find guitarist and vocalist Emily Burgess with her treasured Gibson 339 guitar, singing her catchy original songs with a unique, warm and smooth vocal style. If her vocals put you at ease, don’t sit back and relax too quickly – she is about to rip into a blazing guitar solo, paying homage to her heroes Chuck Berry, Freddie King, and SRV in every lick.

Stage left, bassist Rico Browne is busy laying down the lowest notes in the band, while simultaneously singing the highest harmonies. He is producing a great deal of sound in this band, and he looks like he’s having the time of his life doing it.

Finally, completing the V formation and anchoring the band is Marcus Browne on drums and vocals. You might see his band mates laughing during the show – looking back in awe of his never-ending creativity, technical prowess, and huge personality. Simply put, he is one fine musician.

This cohesive three-piece band sounds like it has more members hiding behind the curtains. With soaring three-part harmony, expert attention to detail on their instruments, and original tunes that you will be singing all the way home, The Emburys are worth a close-up look.

**********
The Mud Boys
Atomic Rooster, 303 Bank Street
Sunday, December 16, 6-9 pm

Hey, good people of Ottawa and beyond its borders:. I just wanted to post the Mud Boys Band one more time - and it's waving goodbye. After 21+years and 3 CDs later, I've decided to make The Mud Boys one of Ottawa's past Blues Bands that used to be. We've played in so many great venues and met so many nice people. To all of the fine musicians I've had the pleasure of making music with, I say ‘Thank You!’. Ottawa has an awesome live blues scene that I'm very grateful to be a part of and will continue to be, going forward.
If you want to see The Mud Boys for the 1st or the last time, the Atomic Rooster will be the place Sunday, December 16, 6-9 pm. Also I'm asking if any past band mates can make it out, your first favorite beverage and a couple of songs are on me.
Cheers all - Looking forward to the future!

The Fabulous Thunderbirds
Uxbridge Music Hall, Uxbridge ON
RESCHEDULED from Friday, November 30
Friday, March 15, 2019 @ 8 pm; $95

For over 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential American band. The group's distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners as "Tuff Enuff" and "Wrap It Up." Co-founder Kim Wilson, the sole original member, still spearheads the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation.

"We started as a straight blues band," vocalist and harmonica player Wilson says. "We now incorporate a mixture of a lot of different styles. We're an American music band and we're much higher energy than we were before."

"To be in the T-Birds, you need to understand the different styles of music and different ways of playing," Wilson comments. "You have to be willing to adopt a more contemporary style. The guys we have now are able to do that."

In addition to Wilson, the current Thunderbirds line-up features Jay Moeller on drums, Johnny Moeller and Mike Keller on guitar, and Randy Bermudes on bass.

Standing front and center at her kit, singing every song from the depths of her soul, she delivers blues, R&B and old school rock ‘n’ roll with punk rock energy, and sings with a voice brimming with attitude and soulfulness. She comes at every song with urgent intensity, soul-baring emotion, a distinct swagger and a take-no-prisoners confidence. With influences ranging from Little Richard to The Ramones, from Billie Holiday to Queens of the Stone Age, Lindsay has crafted a timeless sound and personal style that simply cannot be denied.

Her Alligator Records debut, “Tough As Love”, explodes with Beaver’s volcanic singing, deeply soulful delivery and powerful chops on seven original songs and a handful of vintage roots gems. A refreshing slap across the face of roots music.
