This Thursday I am having a milestone birthday, I'm not saying which one, but I am playing a concert and would like to invite you all to join me and the band at Richelieu Park in Vanier. Owen Brown on bass and Jorge Reyes on drums, we start at 6 pm. We've had a great run of concerts lately and the band is hot! I hope to see you there!

Alec Fraser on upright bass, percussion and back up vocals and Mike Daley on guitar and lead vocals combine old time blues a la Blind Lemon Jefferson with great original songs in the country blues style. They met in 2007 after a Jeff Healey concert (Alec played bass in Jeff's band for years and is also an award winning producer), started playing together and haven't stopped since. "Fraser plays the upright bass so well, he needs no percussionist. And Daley is a magician on guitar" - The Hamilton Spectator

THE HARPOONIST & THE AXE MURDERER www.harpoonistaxemurderer.com
This duo with the unusual name is - Shawn Hall on vocals and harp (the Harpoonist) and Matt Rogers on guitar, stomp board, bass, keyboards and back-up vocals (the Axe Murderer). They make a lot of sound for just two guys and bring a fresh take to roots blues with their contemporary lyrics and unique arrangements - yet they remain true to the old blues traditions. It's blues for a changing world - or as one of their fans put it - "blues that gets you in the crotch". Maple Blues Award nominee for Best New Artists Of The Year in 2012.
