Jonas & the Massive Attraction
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Friday, November 18

It’s been quite a ride for Canadian rockers Jonas & The Massive Attraction since the release of their album “Big Slice” in 2010. The album hit Top 15 in sales nationally in Canada on the Nielsen SoundScan Sales Charts in its first week of release. With three chart topping rock radio singles, including their Top 10 hit ‘Big Slice’, Top 15 single ‘The Deep End’ and Top 20 song ‘Seize The Day’, the band was named one of the Top 10 “Most Played Artists” at Canadian rock radio on the Mediabase year-end radio charts for 2011. No small feat, considering they did it on their own indie label, Big Slice Records.
Trevor Finlay
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Saturday, November 19 @ 9 pm; $10

Ottawa native Country and Blues Rocker, Trevor Finlay has been based out of Nashville for quite some time now. So it is always a show-to-see when he comes home. His career has included releasing 4 studio albums and touring incessantly all over the world (from Canada coast to coast to Australia, parts of the US and Europe), opening for big-named acts (like James Brown, Kid Rock, John Hiatt, Johnny Winter and Booker T. and the MGs just to name a few), earning awards and nominations (2005 – Real Blues Magazine 11th Annual Awards – Best Canadian Blues/Rock Artist, Best Canadian Blues Band/Central, Top Canadian Blues Guitarist; 2002 – Toronto Blues Society’s MBA for “Male Vocalist of the Year”; 1999 – Toronto Blues Society’s MBA for “New Artist of the Year”), and becoming a regular guest on several popular morning radio shows.
Stephane Wrembel
GigSpace, 953 Gladstone Avenue
Saturday, November 19, 7:30 - 9:00 PM; $20
Tickets are only available through: 
If this option does not work for you please contact Justin Duhaime 613-603-3454

Stephane Wrembel: guitar
Thor Robert Jensen: guitar
Ari Folman-Cohen: bass
Nick Anderson: drums 

He’s been called “a revelation” by Rolling Stone. Woody Allen recruited him to score the theme to the 2012 Academy Award winning film Midnight in Paris, and he performed live during this year’s Oscar’s telecast. To say that French-born guitarist/composer Stephane Wrembel—who learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside—has already had a remarkable career would be an understatement. But this virtuoso, who is now Brooklyn-based, has truly just begun to make his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music.

“Origins”, Wrembel’s 5th and most highly anticipated release yet, finds the multi-faceted musician corralling a myriad of influences into a hybrid that simultaneously reflects where he’s been and points to where he’s headed. Although he built his reputation as a stylist in the mode of the iconic French Sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt, Wrembel now revels in transcending and expanding. “I’m digging deeper and deeper into my roots,” he says about the album. Origins touches upon everything from blues to flamenco to rock; all of these influences come together as something identifiable only as Stephane Wrembel. It is the most sophisticated representation to date of Wrembel’s superior compositional skills; his melodies burst with a panoply of textures and colors, moods and emotions.
“It’s a different state of mind all together,” adds Wrembel, talking about Origins. “I always compose with a picture in mind. That Impressionism approach is the main thing that I’ve carried with me from Fontainebleau.”

Blues on the Rideau Presents
Karen Lovely Band
Dinner & Show at
The Cove Country Inn, Westport ON
Friday, September 18; 7- 11 pm, $65
            Proceeds to Westport Food Bank

A powerful and passionate singer in the style of Big Mama Thornton and Bessie Smith with a great feel for the Blues, Karen swept on to the American Blues scene in 2009 with her first album “Lucky Girl” - it went to #13 on the Living Blues Chart and was a ‘Pick To Click’ on XM satellite’s Bluesville Show. She then took 2nd place in the Band category at the 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Her second album, “Still The Rain”, earned her 3 American Blues Music Award nominations (Best Contemporary Blues Female Artist, Best Contemporary Blues Album and Best Song). In 2014 she released a CD called “Prohibition Blues”, featuring classic songs from that era by legends like Ma Rainey, Victoria Spivey and Alberta Hunter – all idols of hers. After a year-long hiatus due to a family tragedy, Karen returned in 2015 with a new record called “Ten Miles Of Bad Road”. Produced by Grammy winner Tony Braunagel, it’s a powerful mix of Blues, Roots and Soul. Karen & her band played BOTR back in October 2011 and gave an unforgettable performance. We’re very lucky to have her back again this year!

C.R. Avery
Black Sheep Inn, Wakefield QC
Sunday, November 20 @ 8:30 pm; $12 advance, $15 at the door

C.R. Avery is a unique, raw and dynamic performer. His genius lies in many genres – blues, hip-hop, spoken word and rock & roll. He is a one-man band, but one for this generation; with the rare ability to sing poetic verse while beatboxing simultaneously while pounding the piano and adding harmonica like a plot twist. He sings!  He rhymes!  He beatboxes! He's a multi-instrumentalist!  

It probably goes without saying that, with his skills as a poet, he's also an amazing songwriter and his new album “All The Angels Didn’t Scare Me”, perhaps more than any other, is a major showcase for his songwriting chops. This was about going back to the traditions of music being a form of journalism for the poor and working classes. It's a contemporary singer-songwriter album, touching on everything from poverty, brokenness and gentrification to Hollywood archetypes and casual relationships -- and it's backed at times by a massive-yet-accessible wall of sound courtesy of Ben Mink and Steve Dawson.

Weekly jazz jam

Thursdays, 7-11 pm; no cover
“… February 11, was the third anniversary of weekly jazz jams at the Brookstreet Hotel's Options Jazz Lounge in Kanata – and the HML Trio will be keeping the music going, as they have from the beginning.
There are not many jams that last without a break for that long, and with the same host band. But the Ottawa jazz trio – Jamie Holmes on drums, Alex Moxon on guitar, and J.P. Lapensée on electric bass – has built a steady following for the Thursday jam, week in and week out.”

With the release of her latest album “Ten Miles Of Bad Road” (released 10/13/15), Lovely has established herself as a singer/songwriter with a style uniquely her own. She's been nominated for a prestigious 2016 Blues Music Award for "Best Contemporary Blues Female Artist’ and, in December, won a 2015 Blues411 ‘Jimi’ Award for ‘Best Contemporary Blues Female Artist."

Shawn Holt & The Teardrops
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Thursday, November 24 @ 9 pm; $20/25 

Shawn Holt is the son of Blues Legend Magic Slim. The high energy, hard-driving sound of The Teardrops is still alive and well and if you like what Magic Slim and The Teardrops have been doing for the last 35 years, you can continue to enjoy that unique sound and energy with Shawn Holt, a chip off the old block, fronting his dad's band.

Shawn started playing the blues at the age of 17, when he went on the road with this father and Slim's brother, Uncle Nick Holt and The Teardrops. Shortly after that tour with his father, Shawn realized his genetic destiny (all the Holt's are talented musicians) and formed his own band. He has been watching, learning and playing blues ever since.

Shawn Holt and The Teardrops are winners for Best New Artist Debut - Daddy Told Me by the Blues Foundation (BMA) 2014. And also won the 2014 Blues Blast Music Award for New Artist Debut Album - Daddy Told Me.
The Last Waltz – 40th Anniversary Celebration
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Friday, November 25

One more time in support of the Ottawa Foodbank, The Bushpilots are again hosting a tribute to The Band's Last Waltz, perhaps the greatest concert film in history, this time to honour the 40th anniversary of this legendary event. Directed by Martin Scorsese, The Last Waltz was a document of The Band's final concert at San Francisco's Winterland ballroom on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976. Joining The Band was an all-star line-up of special guests including Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Dr. John, and many more of the icons who created and breathed American music.

The Bushpilots were blessed to be joined by a Who's Who of Ottawa talent in 2013 and 2014 performing before an SRO crowd at the Rainbow Bistro, and we promise this year will be the biggest and baddest yet. Joining the BPs will be, as always, The Cripple Creek Horns.
Thanks to the legendary Rainbow Bistro for once again providing the venue for what will be our 13th Annual Xmas Bash. Ticket details and special guests to be announced in October.

            Reserve 1-800-669-4861 or peaks@calabogie.com

Following up on the success of their self-titled album from 2014, The Paul DesLauriers Band returns with the aptly titled “Relentless”, a genuine blues-rock escapade featuring 10 new songs encompassing their most original and powerful work to date. Relentless indeed if you consider the pace at which the band has been working for the last two years with touring, writing and recording. The awards they keep racking up only confirm that hard work pays off. Adding to their multiple Maple Blues and Lys Blues awards and nominations they had a number one album on the iTunes Canada Blues Chart and in January 2016 they took home 2nd Place among 119 competing bands from around the world at the 32nd annual International Blues Challenge, held by the Blues Foundation in Memphis. Hot on the heels of that win they returned to Montreal to complete writing and recording Relentless and the result captures the very essence of The Paul DesLauriers Band.

Steve's quartet is comprised of three of Ottawa's best jazz musicians: Steve Boudreau on piano, Alex Mastronardi on bass and David Pontello on drums.
