The master designer of this show, Paul Deslauriers has built a really impressive musical career. Proclaimed a member of Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 100 All Times Best Guitarists, this supported by a whole host of prestigious prizes, this former leader of Kind of Blue, of Black Cat Bone and now of the Paul Deslauriers Band has also been asked all along his career to accompany artists like France D'Amour, Amanda Marshall, Nicolas Ciccone and Garou. On this occasion, he will be offering us a special version of his Guitar Explosion Project with his buddies Sylvain Coulombe on drums, Greg Morency on bass, and with his famed guests.
His first guest, Jack DeKeyzer has performed here on a few occasions, but he is better known in English Canada. With nine albums and some twenty prizes, among them some of the most prestigious, all this achieved within the last decade, the personal tutor of Mr Ben Harper, he can count the first lady, Mrs Laureen Harper as his most famous fan. This highly talented gentleman of the Blues will be visiting Virée Blues Boréale’s stage for a 4th time, thus gracing the Guitar Explosion presentation with his Jazz, Funk, R&B and Swing coloured Blues Sound. Jack DeKeyzer has been declared “The Finest Blues Guitarist in Canada" by none other than Jeff Healey and, according to the great Bob Dylan: "If Jack DeKeyzer was from Chicago, New York or LA, he'd be famous!".
And the other star! Having left the Blues aside to concentrate more on Rock Projects among which Rocksmith, Retrophonic and Martin Deschamps, the Outaouais kid prodigy, Ricky Paquette now also performing as Ricky Laurent is honouring us with a return to the Blues, to his previous identity specially for this very occasion, to come back to his roots, to his public of his early years, of his beginnings with old friends! Having won over the region’s public at 13, at the beginning of 2000s, this extremely talented “Guitar Hero” who has worked with Martin Deschamps, Trevor Finlay, Steve Hill, Bob Walsh, Jimmy James, Nanette Workman, Trudy Lynn (Texas), Breen Leboeuf, Eric Lapointe, Jean Millaire, Jim Zeller, Bob Stagg, Guy Belanger and also with Paul Deslauriers, takes up with Guitar Explosion for one night only, with all the spirit, the energy, the emotion and the exceptional performances on guitar that he’s known for.
From Downchild – Chuck Jackson - lead vocals and harp; Michael Fonfara – keyboards; Pat Carey – sax;
Gary Kendall – bass; Mike Fitzpatrick – drums; plus Teddy Leonard on guitar from Fathead.

Hal uses a looping technology to produce a one-man-band experience, adding subtle but important background beats to his extraordinary ukulele strumming and riffing. Many wouldn’t associate the ukulele as a blues instrument, but Hal takes out all the hula, leaving only room for deep blues to prevail. After his grandfather gave him a uke in ’95, Hal found that it transferred easily from his blues guitar style, complimenting his combination of finger picking and strumming, and gospel vocal style.
