Virée Blues Boréale 16th season presents
Louis Janelle Blues Band
Le Troquet, 41 Laval Street, in the Old Hull sector
Wednesday, September 12 @ 8 pm

With a 15+ year career, our next guest still surprises those who thought they knew him.  In the course of his career, he has worked with more than 10 of the best known Blues groups. For the last 10 years, he has been working on his solo projects, one of which was nominated for «Album of the Year» at the 2006 Lys Blues Awards. 

Born in Terrebonne, Quebec in 1964, Louis Janelle’s musical beginnings were rather peculiar! He started on a drum set that he put together using old ice cream cans, cardboard boxes and pie plates. He also built his first electric guitar from a discarded entrance stair!  He received his first real electric guitar at 10, a gift from his sister.  He played it for almost 4 years with HIS tuning, as musical knowledge was lacking at the time!  Indeed, Louis Janelle is one of those self-taught people who persevered to major levels of skill.

Louis Janelle Blues Band’s repertoire consists mostly of Louisiana Swamp Blues in the style of Lazy Lester, Slim Harpo, Lightnin' Slim, Guitar Gable and others, and of Chicago Blues, as played by Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, etc. The band’s repertoire also includes some Swing, Zydeco, a bit of R&B and even a few Latin rhythms. The search for a variety of rhythms and atmospheres is one of the group’s musical obsessions. This wide variety of styles and atmospheres inspires the group to personalized original interpretations of old hits of the ‘50s, of some forgotten Blues, of rarities from the ‘60s and of present-day Blues that are familiar to all of us!

The current lineup is Louis Janelle (vocals and guitar), with his buddy and co-founder of the initial group, Gilles Bonenfant (harmonica), Gaetan Boulerice (bass) and Eloi Bertholet (drums).  The Louis Janelle Blues Band is now working on its 2nd album due out next April. 

Studio Theatre, Perth ON
Friday, September 14 @ 8 pm

Upon being asked about his passion for his music, delta blues legend Son House said “I’m talkin’ ‘bout the blues, I ain’t talkin’ ‘bout monkey junk”. And thus was born the quirky name of the equally quirky contemporary blues band MonkeyJunk. Blending delta blues, soul boogie, and country with modern presentation, MonkeyJunk boasts an innovative and creative approach to the blues. Guitars, keys, drums, harp and vocals are their sound; no bass – but Hound Dog Taylor didn’t have a bass player, and Little Walter often didn’t use one either.
Steve Marriner, Tony D, and Matt Sobb play well off of each other, seamlessly creating an upbeat, catchy sound that is a cross between Muddy Waters, Lightnin’ Hopkins, swamp R&B and soul boogie that will keep your foot tappin’ and your body movin’.

Music By The Bay Live Small Club BIG SHOW Concert Series presents
Steve Strongman                     ***SOLD OUT***
The Waterfront; 590 Liverpool Road Pickering
Friday September 21; tickets $35

There are reasons why Canadian blues artist Steve Strongman was the 2011 Maple Blues Award winner for Guitar Player of the Year. There are reasons why Steve Strongman consistently packs venues across Canada for his performances. There are reasons why he was chosen as one of Hamilton, Ontario’s "Top 40 Achievers Under 40 Years Old" by the area’s major newspaper. There are reasons why in the last three years Strongman has performed at major blues festivals in Rio de Janeiro, France, Switzerland, Mexico City, Memphis and Canada, including two appearances at the famed Montreal International Jazz Festival, four appearances at the Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival, and the Ottawa Blues Festival.  Charisma. Verve. Passion. Unbridled talent!

Beginning his professional music career at the age of 16, Strongman has spent over 20 years touring Canada, Europe and, more recently, South America. Along the way he’s been chosen to open shows and perform with Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Randy Bachman, Roy Clark, Otis Clay, Jeff Healey, Sonny Landreth, and British legend, Joe Cocker, to name a few. A Maple Blues Award winner, he was the 2009 recipient of the prestigious Mel Brown Blues Award, as well as the 2010 Hamilton Music Award winner for Blues Recording of the Year for his second studio release, “Blues in Colour”

Colin James
NAC Southam Hall,
Monday, October 15 @ 8 pm; tickets from $40

A true standard-bearer of Canadian rock with an excellent reputation on the international scene, guitarist Colin James has a mantel full of JUNOs and Maple Blues Awards, and a collection of gold certified albums proudly displayed on his walls.  Each of his frequent Festival performances is an event in itself, as he proved with last year's remarkable acoustic concert, presented as a duet with Chris Caddell. The fret-board ace returns to share music from his latest album “Fifteen”, the 15th in a 25-year career. 

From the prairies of Saskatchewan to sharing the stage with arguably the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time, Colin James still remembers those words of advice given to him by the late, great, Stevie Ray Vaughan. “I’m opening doors for you, just walk through them.”  For every young guitar player growing up in a small town, Colin James’ story is their story – one of drive, passion, ambition and a strong sense that their destiny lay beyond the safe confines of home.  Looking back on a career that now spans two decades, Colin has walked through more than just a few doors to reach the level of success that he enjoys today. He continues to record the music that he loves, has sold multi-platinum many times over, and his concert tours continue to sell out coast to coast. 

Colin will be performing with his seven-piece band, and along with selections from his new CD, “Fifteen”, he will play hits from his vast repertoire, including ‘Into The Mystic’, ‘Why’d You Lie’, ‘Man’s Gotta Be A Stone’, and many more from his fourteen previous albums.

East Meets Vest – David Vest
The Waterfront; 590 Liverpool Road Pickering
Friday October 19; tickets $35

David Vest is the real thing, raised in Birmingham, Alabama and the juke joints all along the Gulf Coast. He`s played with Big Joe Turner in the early ‘60s, toured with Jimmie ‘T99’ Nelson, Lavalle White and co-lead the legendary Paul deLay Band.

When he moved north of the 49th parallel, he entered the Canadian blues scene like a piano falling from the sky with incendiary performances at Edmonton and Calgary blues festivals. Making his home in Victoria B.C., he was enlisted by Bill Johnson to play on the Juno and Maple Blues Award nominated recording “Still Blue”. In early 2012, he was touring Ontario as a Maple Blues Award nominee and recording his first all-Canadian album.

What came together in Toronto on Mardi Gras Day 2012 wasn’t just history, it was magic. The ‘East Meets Vest’ tour began in July at the Tremblant International Blues Festival and will continue wherever the road might lead. 
Featuring: Teddy Leonard (Fathead), Mike Fitzpatrick (Downchild), Gary Kendall (Downchild).

Started in 2003, The Blues Festival Guide magazine was a Media Sponsor of the 2003 government-proclaimed Year of The Blues.

That same year, they also received an award from the West Coast Hall of Fame/Bay Area Blues Society for ‘Best Blues Publication of the Year’.

This year, the artwork that graces the front cover is by Jackson-MS based artist, Tony Davenport. The first half of the magazine is the Festival Section with dozens of blues festivals including their line-ups so blues fans can easily plan their festival season and a comprehensive Plan Your Blues calendar in the back.

The entire magazine can also be read online; find a link hosted on the homepage at http://www.BluesFestivalGuide.com. This Digital Magazine is user-friendly with lots of bells and whistles; turn the page with a click of your mouse.

concert 1: Jarvis Church
, recorded at the Jackson Triggs Amphitheatre in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
We all know Jarvis Church from his days with the hard rocking R&B group The Philosopher Kings, and more recently as a solo love song crooner. Jarvis is an incredible talent with a soulful voice. His latest project, Jarvis Church's Soul Station, has Jarvis and his crack band of soul musicians taking a look back, way back before the days of The Philosopher Kings. Soul Station is in the midst of releasing a series of recordings that pay homage to the soul singers that influenced Jarvis. The first in that series features the music of Sam Cooke. For this concert we catch up with Jarvis Church's Soul Station at the Jackson-Triggs amphitheatre in Niagara On The Lake. The Soul Station performs a 1960's soul style revue of all of the great Sam Cooke songs. But then the surprising part of the night comes when Jarvis sings two of his own songs, "Do It Better" and "She Keeps Me Up All Night". While these songs were written in 2012 you would never know it. They sound like they are lost B-Sides by Sam Cooke himself. Incredible!
