Ottawa Blues This Week - 28 September 2015

It’s always wise to check with
the venue to confirm the show!
            CD release “Moon Turn Red”
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Friday & Saturday, October 2-3; 9:30 pm

Multi-award winning Ottawa-based trio MonkeyJunk will be celebrating the release of their new album, “Moon Turn Red” with two hometown CD release parties on October 2 and 3 at The Rainbow Bistro. Rooted in the sounds of swampy soul, dirty blues and rock ’n’ roll, MonkeyJunk is comprised of Steve Marriner (vocals, harmonica, keyboards, baritone guitar), Tony D (lead guitar, background vocals) and Matt Sobb (drums, percussion, background vocals).

“Moon Turn Red” is not only an outstanding addition to an already impressive body of work and a turning point for MonkeyJunk, it is an example of musical camaraderie and brotherhood; the trio of long-time friends and colleagues just seem to click in a way that is at once natural and otherworldly. Their passion, conviction and dedication to their music are evident with every lick, every beat and every lyric. MonkeyJunk is a reminder to listeners that musicianship, ability and strong song writing will always triumph.

MAM presents their new show
Human Swing Box
La Grange de la Gatineau, 80 chemin Summer, Cantley QC
Thursday, October 1 @ 8 pm; $20

The swing in the era of modern music or when the violin and the accordion swing with a
human beat-box and keyboards.

Viviane Arnoux and François Michaud have happily collaborated since 1992. Their
meeting created the need to come up with an original music project that transcended
the traditional roles of accordion, violin (or viola) and voice. François Michaud, (violin,
viola) left Québec very young; he dragged his violin through various continents and
music conservatories, grabbed a viola along the way, africanized his classical sound
and jazzified his folk music. He is one of the two founding members of MAM. He directs
the Loué music school, where he also teaches. He gives workshops for children and
master classes. He has produced 9 CDs as main artist and many more as collaborator.
Viviane Arnoux, (accordion, voice) started playing accordion at 4 years old. She is the
other founding member of MAM. She was accordionist for Hughes Aufray. She teaches
accordion at the Hohner school and also gives workshops for children and master
classes. She composes songs and music for shorts films and collaborates on many
international artists' CDs.

This new piece “Human Swing Box” is the result of much reflection and research on
sounds, caused by the need to participate in the evolution of our culture, ever changing.
Since 2007 and the album Meddled Times MAM has been working on the concept of
time and its influence on artists, catalysts of the emotions and sensations that their era
induces. New Time came out in 2011, as a logical sequence, with Norbert Lucarain,
who plays the repertoire on stage, as a human beat-box and on the keyboards, in a
bright and unrestrained manner. “Human Swing Box” arises from the extension of this
collaboration, while finally being able to record an album with him, as a necessity when
we need to lay a solid base in a time when we are losing our cultural references. Hence
the return to swing, organic and punctuated by the “box”, which pounds our robotic
tendencies, symbol of the contemporary progress of humanity. MAM, you may know
from having seen and listened to Jazz in my musette or Paris Village, or with the New
York Fab. But with Norbert Lucarain from General Elektriks, they sure make us swing
and transport us into their world of energetic and imaginative compositions. Unbridled
music! Standards definitely revisited!

October 23
From Alabama/Victoria BC
Born in Alabama David now lives in Victoria, BC. He plays foot-stompin’, rock ‘n rollin’, boogie-woogie piano as good as it gets - a 2X Maple Blues Award winner for Keyboardist of the Year. The Willing Victims include the great Teddy Leonard on guitar and 2 members from Downchild.

November 20
From Peterborough & Wainfleet ON
Two of the finest singer/songwriter/guitarists in Canada – individually they’re great - together they’re magical!  Multiple Maple Blues Award winners & Suzie has won a Juno. Their 4th visit to BOTR and they’ve sold out every time so make your reservations early for this one!

January 22 & 23
From Hamilton
A fabulous guitarist, singer/songwriter and showman - Juno Award winner and Maple Blues Award winner in the categories of Best Guitarist, Songwriter, Recording, Electric Act, Acoustic Act and Entertainer. His 4th visit to The Cove and he’s become so popular we’re bringing him in for a 2 night stand this time!

February 19
From Toronto
Jeff Healey called him “the finest Blues guitarist in Canada”. A 2X Juno Award and 7X Maple Blues Award winner for Best Guitarist, Entertainer, Electric Act and Recording of the Year. One of the hardest working Bluesmen in the country with a great veteran band. This is Jack’s 7th visit to BOTR - unquestionably one of our favourites!

March 25
From Montreal
With a career spanning 26 years and 8 albums to her credit Angel is recognized as one of the best female vocalists in Quebec. Now she’s become nationally and internationally famous. Last year she won the Maple Blues Award winner for Best Female Vocalist (her second in a row) and Best Songwriter. A colourful, flamboyant performer with a voice like Janis Joplin. Her first appearance at BOTR and we’re very pleased to have her!

April 22
From Montreal
A young, beautiful up-and-coming artist with a powerful, soulful voice who sings Blues, Jazz, Soul & R&B like Etta James & Koko Taylor. 4 Quebec Lys Blues Award nominations for her first album and a finalist in the 2014 Toronto Blues Society’s Talent Search. She hasn’t played outside of Quebec that often yet but that’s about to change – come and see her before she gets famous!

May 13
From Hamilton
One of the best Soul/Blues/R&B singers this country has ever produced - period. Lead singer in the Detroit supergroup “Chairmen Of The Board” in the 1960s Harrison semi-retired when the band broke up, took a “real job” and only played Blues on the side for a few decades. He re-emerged full time in the early 2000s and since then he’s released 7 albums (4 of which earned Juno nominations), been nominated 15X for Maple Blues Awards and an American Blues Music Award. Harrison has been here twice before - now you get to see him with his full R&B band behind him. I guarantee this will be a night to remember. Reserve early!

Mackenzie Rhythm Section
            Opening – Bella Cat
Richcraft Theatre, Shenkman Arts Centre

This is one of those all-too-rare opportunities to see an amazing band before it’s too big for its own hometown. Mackenzie Rhythm Section is well on its way to making a huge impace on a much larger ‘stage’. Their unique style of music – they call it ‘the Soul Step’ – springs from the heart of rock and solid funk. Original, danceable and memorable: you’ll be glad you came?

The equally stunning Bella Cat opens the show, presenting a mélange of classic blues and rock.
The 24th Street Wailers
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Saturday, October 24 @ 9:30 pm

Experienced, road-tested and tougher than a two by four, The 24th Street Wailers are five musicians whose major influence is the sounds from the freewheeling period in the ‘40s and ‘50s when the Blues gave birth to Rock and Roll in black communities in major American cities. When showmanship mattered. When the sax player, not the guitarist, got the girls.
“We’re just trying to restore faith in what the Blues and Rock and Roll were meant to be.”
Ike Stubblefield
Irene’s Pub, 885 Bank Street
Saturday, October 24 @ 9:30 pm; $10

“I’m combining all elements of my 46 years of playing,” said Stubblefield. “My style’s kind of all over the place so it’s not a jam band, or jazz or funk necessarily, but it has all those elements.”
Ike Stubblefied is more than just a performer, he’s an artist in the true sense of the word, and whether writing, producing or composing, he is always working to perfect his art.

Jennis brings together award-winning Guelph-based Dennis Gaumond’s decades of experience writing and performing original blues and folk and the diverse musical experiences of veteran Toronto indie-scene multi-instrumentalist Jen Gillmor. The unique blend of cello and dobro is also augmented by unusual sounds, such as a didgeridoo, custom-tuned harmonics, flute, wau-guitar, jaw harp and wazinator. It makes for a very entertaining peroformance, filled with energy, passion and humour. Their rootsy sound is at times bluesy, at times funky, jazzy or folky, with a hind of exotic ethnic influences.
