Ottawa Blues This Week - 26 October 2015

It’s always wise to check with
the venue to confirm the show!
The 22nd edition of Virée Blues Boréale presents
Jo Hell & the Red Roosters
Le Petit Chicago, 50 Promenade du Portage, Gatineau QC
Wednesday, October 28 @ 8 pm

A Star-feature on Virée Blues Boréale’s very beginnings, he won the hearts of the region’s Blues fans on his very first performance. Jo Hell, now a Texas resident, gets to be on stage 7 days a week, mainly on Austin’s 6th Avenue where he had the opportunity to play his guitar beside bassist Tommy Shannon (Double Trouble, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter), to talk Blues with Buddy Guy, with the late B.B. King and with Chris Layton (Double Trouble, Stevie Ray Vaughan), and to perform on stage with, among others, the late famous piano great  Pinetop Perkins (Muddy Waters), with guitarist Alan Haynes, with the late Hubert Sumlin (Howlin’ Wolf), with the late Uncle John Turner (Johnny Winter) and with the late famous drummer Buddy Miles (Jimmy Hendrix)! These learning experiences allowed the band to progress to a more refined, mature and clearer sound, but always as powerful and frenzied, fitted for the best Texas Roadhouses. Unfortunately, this makes it much more difficult to visit with us as much as he and the fans wish.

This is one of the most sought after bands at Virée Blues Boréale; they are grateful and so, make sure to reward this wait. By popular demand, after a delay of more than four years, and for a sixth performance at Virée Blues Boréale, the first since  2007, the Original of Jo Hell & The Red Roosters.

Blues On The Rideau is a Dinner and Show Fundraiser Series that has been running at The Cove Country Inn in Westport, Ontario for the past 10 years. The shows start in September and run once a month through to May (December excluded) and feature some of the best Blues bands in Canada (and a few American ones too). It has come to be recognized as one of the premier Blues Series in Canada. Every show is a fundraiser for a different local charity. To date the Series has raised over $55,000. The goal for this season is another $5K.

The Cove Inn is located in the beautiful village of Westport on Upper Rideau Lake - about a 90 minute drive from Ottawa, 45 minutes from Kingston. All BOTR shows run from 7 to 11 pm and include a delicious full course buffet dinner. The staff at The Cove are very friendly and the venue is small, intimate and relaxed. After dinner you get to see and dance to the bands up close and personal – the way Blues is best enjoyed – all for a very reasonable price – $65 (plus tax). There are door prize giveaways at every show and 2 Grand Prizes drawn at the end of the season from all of the Comment Cards filled in by attendees over the year.  

ADVANCE RESERVATIONS are required and it is wise to book well ahead especially if you want to stay overnight. Rooms at The Cove and nearby B&Bs and motels frequently sell out for Blues nights. Call The Cove at 613-273-3636 or 1-888-COVEINN to reserve.

More info on the Series, including Bios, LINKS to websites and YOU TUBES of all the artists can be found at www.BluesOnTheRideau.ca 

2015/16 SEASON – our 11th year!
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!

Bands and dates are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. Check the website or call The Cove closer to the shows to confirm.

RCHA Club, 193 Ontario Street, Kingston ON
Saturday, December 5 @ 8:30 pm

Like a beat up old Dodge burning down the highway with a brand new set of rims and a candy metallic paint job, Soulstack carves out their modern roots music in nouveau-retro-style, inspired by sweaty sounds and throbbing rhythms, all performed with deep intensity, wild conviction, greasy organ, sweet tremolo-soaked guitar, and heartbreaking harmonies.

These young Soulstack men stand by their beat-up vintage instruments and bleed every ounce of emotion from them – taking the listener on a rhythmic and melodic journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the exhaust-tinged fuzz of Detroit with award winning engineer Jeremy Darby (Smokey Robinson, Keith Richards, Prince.)

Soulstack was formed in 2011 by frontman Jonathan Knight and keyboardist Mark Wessenger. The band consists of Maple Blues Award-winning drummer Tom Bona, bass Darryl ‘Harpo’ Peterson and baritone guitarist Chris Latta.
