Ottawa Blues This Week - 7 May 2012

Virée Blues Boréale’s 15th Edition presents
Al Wood & the Woodsmen
            CD release – “Right On Cue”
Bar-Bistro Le Troquet, 41 Laval Street (Old Hull sector)
Wednesday, May 9 @ 8 pm

Always anxious to provide a select showcase to the many talented local Blues artists, Virée Blues Boréale’s team did not miss its goal this year.  When we learned of a soon-to-be released album by one of the region’s leading groups, we rushed to include the group in our 15th edition’s program.  And we were not alone wishing to greet this 2nd album.  Upon the announcement of this release, many artists (among which a group that was awarded the Juno for “Best Blues Album of the Year”) have announced that they wish to participate in this event.  So, Virée Blues Boréale is very happy to invite you to the release of this second album by Al Wood & the Woodsmen, “Right On Cue” with their guests Mathieu Gagnon, Al Tambay & MonkeyJunk.

Composer,singer and multi-instrumentalist from Ottawa, Al Wood is known as a Real Bluesman.   His compositions, his singing, his guitar and harmonica playing all demonstrate a deep reverence for the blues and traditionally-based roots music.  Born in Sault Ste. Marie (the Soo), Ontario, that’s where he cut his teeth playing in blues bands to a crowd plugged into punk and “alternative” music at the time.  Those multiple types of experiences built a strong stage presence.  This might explain how and why Al throws his whole heart and soul into every performance with the same exuberance and showmanship whether for a crowd of two or two thousand.  Out of this scene was born Al Wood & the Woodsmen’s ancestors, The Rhythm Rats, boys from the Soo with a passion for the blues.  That group, made up of a majority of the present Woodsmen, took their energetic spin on the genre to the big city, Montreal, in the ‘90s.  The five years in Montreal were something else … with unthinkable variables constantly surfacing and life lessons learned that later spilled onto blank sheets as songs.  After The Rhythm Rats, they could and sometimes can still be found as Red Wood Central (RWC), a group that recorded two albums – one in 1999 and another in 2002.

After a very successful first album, Al Wood (harmonica and vocals), solidly supported by the Woodsmen, Lindsay Pugh (guitar and vocals), Marty Sobb (guitar), Chris Breitner (bass) and Simon Meilleur (drums) will present us with their latest opus which is now fast ascending DAWG FM’s Top 20.  And, to mark the event, a very impressive list of music personalities will be joining the Woodsmen.  These highly anticipated musical guests for the evening so far include: Ottawa based guitar ace and relentlessly hardworking Al Tambay; the formerly emerging and now all the way there Hull singer and harmonica player Mathieu Gagnon.  Our last confirmed guests are members of the Juno award winning Monkey Junk.  Both Steve Marriner and Matt Sobb played on Al’s first CD and have remained closely associated with the band.  It will be a rare opportunity to hear the Sobb brothers Matt and Marty share a stage as they commonly did in their younger days.

So there it is …. So many reasons to attend this Woodsmen show!   A new CD, the full-size five-piece Woodsmen band, and some amazing guests – and just enough controlled unpredictability to make it THE Blues Show that everyone will remember!  So many reasons to be there when Al Wood & The Woodsmen will be releasing their second album, “Right on Cue” with their renowned guests, Mathieu Gagnon, Al Tambay & MonkeyJunk.

Indie Night
            With guest performer rorie kelly (all the way from NYC!)
GigSpace in Alcorn Music Studios at 953 Gladstone Ave.
Thursday May 10 @ 8 pm; cover: $5 - all ages welcome

rorie kelly is a small redheaded tornado of sound. First-time listeners often comment, “I can’t believe that voice came out of that body.” rorie writes catchy, melodic rock songs that she plays with enough passion to break guitar strings--and go right on playing without batting an eye. The singer/songwriter has been compared to artists ranging from Fiona Apple to Janis Joplin to Liz Phair. She has opened for Alix Olsen and Jen Chapin, and was named one of Long Island’s “Top Ten Indie Artists You’ve Never Heard Of” by Pulse Magazine.
rorie recently released her first full-length record, “Wish Upon a Bottlecap”. The album has hit the airwaves with a vengeance. “Wish Upon a Bottlecap” is getting spins on Triple-A and college radio stations across the country, including stations reporting to FMQB and CMJ. She also just released a brand new single, ‘Fall to Feel It’, which was commissioned for a comedy documentary and is available on iTunes.

Indie Night aims to provide a comfortable place for aspiring singer-songwriters to share their music in front of a live audience. Each month there will be a performance by featured artist, followed by an open mic. Participants are strongly encouraged to sing original songs rather than covers. There is a PA and keyboard available for the performers.

Indie Night was recently profiled in Ottawa Magazine! Check it out:

The 24th Street Wailers
Irene’s Pub, 885 Bank Street
Friday, May 25 @ 9:30 pm

Sponsored by the Toronto Blues Society, this band made a real impression at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, February 1-4.  Their first performance on Wednesday at Wet Willie’s initiated a buzz that resulted in a full house for their second performance on Thursday; they closed out the First Great Canadian Polar Bear Blues Showcase in fine style on Thursday afternoon; they filled their venue to capacity for their appearance in the semi-finals on Friday night; and they were the only Canadian band asked to participate in the Kings of Beale Street competition on Saturday night.  And they sold a whole lot of CDs. 

Their 2011 release "Dirty Little Young’uns" debuted at number three in Canada and number eight overall on the Roots Music Report and was on the DAWG FM Top 20 charts for several months. It was the
featured “Blues Breaker of the Week” on Dan Aykroyd’s House of Blues Radio Hour.  "This is just great, gritty, fun, live stuff!"...Dan Aykroyd
Following the success of “Dirty Little Young’uns”, they were in Halifax in early March to record their 2nd CD and on May 27 they’ll be at Irene’s for CD release party for their sophomore release, “Unshakeable”.

The young musicians in this band all studied music at college so they know their stuff, but they also know how to entertain and can appeal to the younger demographic that is needed in our blues audience.  The 24th Street Wailers will be delivering their patented incredible high energy and fun blues … this is a ‘DON’T MISS’ show!
Studebaker John
Rainbow, 76 Murray Street
Friday, May 25 @ 10 pm

Studebaker John Grimaldi was born in an Italian-American section of Chicago and started playing harmonica at age 7. Under the spell of music he heard on Maxwell Street, Chicago’s famed blues melting pot, Grimaldi began performing as Studebaker John and the Hawks in the ‘70s. The band name referenced the Studebaker Hawk, a car Grimaldi still owns today, and was also intended as a tribute to his friend, J.B. Hutto and the Hawks. John began playing guitar after a life-changing experience of seeing Hound Dog Taylor and the Houserockers perform. “…Hound Dog started playing, hitting notes that sent chills up and down my spine. He was versatile and powerful and would play rhythm as well as leads. I left there knowing what I wanted to do. I had to play slide guitar.”

As a songwriter and musician, Studebaker John has emerged as a major creative force in the world of the blues today. Ahead of the pack, with vision and foresight, creating a new standard and landscape for this music’s future… with John at the wheel, the future is now!

Tad Robinson
Rainbow, 76 Murray Street
Friday, June 1 @ 10 pm

If you were fortunate to witness 7-time W.C. Handy/Blues Music Award nominee Tad Robinson’s performance at the 2011 Blues Music Awards, you’d understand why Tad stands shoulder to shoulder with the best Soul / Blues vocalists on the planet. Backed by the Severn House Band, and displaying grit and just the right amount of tenderness, Tad wrung all the emotion possible out of three numbers including a moving tribute to the late Solomon Burke, (‘I’m Leavin’’ from Burke’s last release “Nothing’s Impossible”), and heart-stopping rendition of the BMA nominated ‘Rained All Night’ (Song of the Year).

If you missed his performance at the Blues Music Awards, you can make up for it – Tad Robinson will be at the Rainbow on Friday, June 1, on his way to headline the Waterfront Blues Festival in Toronto the following day.  This is a ‘DON’T MISS’ show!

His one-man show combines acoustic & electric guitars with soulful vocals and harmonica solos.  He performs music from his original CDs plus plenty of folk-rock, blues and pub favourites.

George Thorogood & the Destroyers
            Gordie Johnson opening
CE Centre, 4899 Uplands Drive
Sunday, June 3; tickets $48
While many bands change sounds as the music scene evolves, George Thorogood & the Destroyers stay the course. They know who they are, and they’re out to tell the world about it. Faithful to their blues roots, they’ve continued to play the rough and ready sounds that draw from the influences of John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf.
Gordie Johnson is joining the bill and will combine blues and gospel with dub for an electric set of boot-stomping tunes. Johnson's extraordinary guitar stylings are the driving force behind Big Sugar and Grady, two bands with a large following in North America. This will be an excellent introduction to another side of the man and his music.
