John Allaire
Patty’s Pub, 1186 Bank Street
Saturday, July 29

Ottawa’s own folk rocker John Allaire will play his 2000th show Saturday July 29 at Patty’s Pub. After over 30 years in the business and 12 albums released, 51-year-old Allaire will be celebrating this major accomplishment in one of his usual haunts in front of his loyal following.

“I am very much looking forward to rocking the place. This is the best business in the world. It has taken me all over the world. I wouldn’t want to mark this night anywhere else but home,” says Allaire.

John has built a brand that is equal to none in his town. Coming off a record 151 shows last year, Allaire continues touring, but also maintains a couple of weekly shows in Ottawa. The Allaire Show packs them in every Saturday during the fall and winter months at Quinn’s on Bank. And this summer, Allaire has taken his show next door to the Barley Mow as the resident performer every Friday after work. And you better get there early because his shows pack up fast. And bring your singing voice because audience participation is pretty much mandatory. It only takes one experience at an Allaire Show and you are hooked.

Allaire adds, “I have played with so many incredible people that its hard to remember them all. But every show is a great time. I am having a great time. And I am not done yet!”

Ana Popovic
Uxbridge Music Hall, 16 Main Street South, Uxbridge ON
Friday, August 11 @ 8:30 pm; $75 advance + HST & fees
Advance Tickets www.musicbythebaylive.com

L.A. based, guitar-player and singer ANA POPOVIC is back on the road promoting her new triple album “TRILOGY” - Her most ambitious project yet. With “TRILOGY” Ana releases three albums in one! Twenty-three funk, rock/blues and jazz tunes produced by Grammy Award winner Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Carlos Santana), Grammy Award winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy) and Delfeayo Marsalis, one of the top trombonists, composers and producers in jazz today. Guest appearances include Joe Bonamassa, Robert Randolph and many others.
The only female guitarist part of the ‘all-star’ Experience Hendrix 2014 - ’17 line-up about the release: "In an era where most are skeptic about the current state and future of the music industry, I wanted “TRILOGY” to tell a different story. The record biz might be broken and Spotify might rip us off, but that can’t keep an artist down. Creativity is very much alive, and music is the celebration of life."

Music by the Bay Live presents
Bobby Rush
St. Francis Centre, 78 Church Street South, Ajax ON
Tuesday, August 15 @ 9 pm; $80 advance
Advance Tickets www.musicbythebaylive.com

Bobby Rush...2017 GRAMMY winning blues legend, 2006 Blues Hall of Fame Inductee, 10x Blues Music Award winner, B.B. King Entertainer of the Year!

 “…the man known as ‘The King of the Chitlin Circuit’… a man who deserves being mentioned in the same context as the blues greats Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, and B.B. King.” – American Blues Scene

Bobby Rush is the greatest bluesman currently performing. “Porcupine Meat” (released 2016) is a testament to his brilliance, which presents him at his very best, and doesn’t try to be anything that he is not. “I just try to record good music and stories,” he humbly states. With this recording, he has more than accomplished his goal, and has produced one of the finest contemporary blues albums in recent times.

Bobby truly is one of the last of the GREATS of his generation still performing and Music by the Bay Live is excited and honoured to be presenting him this August in Ajax.

Spectrasonic and Clyde River Productions present
Robert Cray
Algonquin Commons Theatre, 1385 Woodroffe Avenue
Friday, August 25; doors @ 7 pm, show @ 8 pm; tickets $50-$59.50

Open ears and an open mind are the essence of singer, guitarist and songwriter Robert Cray’s approach to writing, recording and playing music. He has created a sound that rises from American roots and arrives today both fresh and familiar. In just over 40 years Cray and his band have recorded 20 studio releases, 15 of which have been on the Billboard charts, and played bars, concert halls, festivals and arenas around the world. There are five Grammys with Cray’s name on them, and he has a suitcase full of W.C. Handy blues awards. Four years ago, Cray was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.

On August 28, the Mascot Label Group will celebrate the vibrancy of the Cray Band’s rocking rootsy blues, soul-filled ballads and timeless R&B with the release of “4 Nights of 40 Years Live”. Through clips of concerts from the ‘80s and four recent shows, the evolution from the Cray Band unfolds. Comments by Cray and band members add depth. And interviews with Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmie Vaughan and Buddy Guy put the band in perspective. The 3-piece set will be available in a variety of formats – 2 LPs + Mp3, 2 CDs + DVD, Blu-Ray + 2 CDs and digitally.

The multimedia “4 Nights of 40 Years Live” is a testament to the band’s longevity and vitality. The '80s concert footage is exuberant and shows the charisma of Young Bob (a reference in song that Cray makes to himself in homage to Muddy Waters calling himself Young Muddy) as a guitarist, vocalist and band leader. The live performances at recent concerts capture seasoned musicians bringing a vivid, illustrative past into the moment. Cray’s Stratocaster solos sing, cry and take on the funk. His voice has grown richer and wiser yet remains sweet.

It is extraordinary for musicians to thrive over four decades, and the Robert Cray Band is just that, an extraordinary story of success.

You can show up at 'the gate' (cash only) but call/email ahead of time to ensure that there will be room for you. We don't want to turn anyone away but, seriously, space is limited and we want everyone to be comfortable for this all-day affair.

Terry Gillespie
Centrepointe Theatre (Studio), 100 Centrepointe Drive
Friday, September 8 @ 7:30 pm; tickets $39.50

Terry and His Super Tight Band will be performing at Centrepointe Theatre. The band is really looking forward to playing such an acoustic fit room. It is a treat for them! Opening the show will be Vince Halfhide playing an intimate set of originals and interpretations - how nice is that! The plan is to take you back to the roots of Ottawa Blues first played by Heaven's Radio in 1969 in Ottawa, some say the first band in Canada to do that! This band is not about guitar heroes but straight up Blues played old school. Alright!

Saying all that, Terry has spent the last year developing new material, including a new CD 'Home Boy', a new look for his website terrygillespie.ca and one of the most difficult and time-consuming projects was participating in the documentary: Mr. Groove. It is 7 minutes long and was a joint project between Richard Flohil and film maker, Booker Sim, Terry’s son with interviews by Sue Foley, Holger Petersen and Richard Flohil himself.  

Other reasons we are celebrating are:
• Terry's 55th year playing professionally
•  49 years back in Canada
• 70th year as a human
I figure that as long as he can and wants to drive he can travel and play, but we now look at each tour for fun and ease. Why not! Everyone sez he sounds and plays ' better than ever'. Alright!

The show at The Centrepointe also kicks off Terry's 2017 solo Western Tour.

The Bluesmobile with Elwood Blues, CHEZ FM 106.1
Sundays 6-7 pm; Wednesdays 11 pm – midnight
FINAL SHOW – Sunday, July 30, 2017

*** A Message From Elwood Blues ***

Greetings Citizens,
Elwood Blues, your musical chauffeur, here.

The BluesMobile began life as the House of Blues Radio Hour, way back in 1993. Over the years we moved from the house to the road, but the mission was always the same: showcase the best in blues, blues-rock, roots music, R&B, soul, jazz, straight up rock… and all points in between.

I put the spotlight on new releases from old favorites and newbies. I played the crusty, the fresh, the seasoned, and the raw, featuring wide-ranging interviews with the musicians themselves, and many live in-house concerts, recorded exclusively for the BluesMobile.

I now give thanks to the stations, the sponsors, affiliates, producers, managers, agents, and all those hard workers who put the “business” in show business, and bigger thanks to all the players and fans who keep the show going. This series, alas, has gone as far as it can go. Our final broadcast will be July 30, 2017.

There is a crossroads dead ahead. Twenty-four years is a long time without a turn. We may turn left, or right, but we will no longer go forward.  Time for a new direction, a new road.  For us, the end of this one.

And so we leave you to your journey. Please tip a cold one for us before you continue on your way. Watch our tail lights as we vanish in the distance, then get back to it.

Remember: The blues never dies. It will never run out of road. That road goes on forever.
And thanks for riding along.

Yours,
Elwood.

Songs rarely heard, from the very first recordings all the way to indie artists who consciously push the envelope to the next generation sounds of the genre; some older releases will be spun - just because the album in old, doesn't mean it's forgotten, thus the "On The Side" part of the show's title.
