“… 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.”

Paul Reddick & MonkeyJunk
Black Sheep Inn, Wakefield QC
Friday, March 17

Paul Reddick has been creating his own, compelling version of the blues for over 25 years, bringing the art form to new frontiers with his poetic lyrics, spirited vocals, masterful harmonica playing, and hypnotic live performances. Rooted in a deep knowledge of blues music history and nourished by a poet’s sensibility, his “wayward brilliance,” as the influential British magazine Mojo puts it, makes Paul Reddick one of the most popular figures, and the unofficial poet laureate, of the Canadian blues and roots music scene. His debut release on Stony Plain Records, “Ride The One” has been nominated for a JUNO Award this year.

MonkeyJunk plays a bluesy blend of swampy roots-rock. Each an established musician in his own right, the MonkeyJunk trio has won a collective 20 Maple Blues Awards, two Canadian Independent Music Awards, a Blues Music Award (USA), a Juno, and a passionate following of fans designated “MonkeyJunkies”.
Steve Hill
NAC Studio, 1 Elgin Street
Saturday, March 18 @ 8 pm 
            (This show is an OBS member-only promotion;
              Deadline – Monday, March 13 @ 6 pm, Ottawa time)

When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits. The truest definition of a one-man band; Hill performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and with a drum stick fused to the head of his trusty guitar, any other percussion within reach. An overnight sensation 20 years in the making, Steve Hill is an ambitious and raucous force to be reckoned with on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene. 

Following a winter tour in Europe, Steve is back in Canada and will be at the NAC on March 18.

Matt Andersen
            With special guest Steve Hill

Brockville Arts Centre, Brockville ON

Empire Theatre & Centre for the Performing Arts, Belleville ON
Saturday, March 25 @ 7:30 pm; $45

Showplace Performance Centre, Peterborough ON
Sunday, March 26 @ 7:30 pm; $45

A powerhouse performer, Matt Andersen’s “fingers sail over his acoustic guitar strings with the speed and grace of a hummingbird,” he has a giant yet soul-filled and passionate voice, and a commanding stage presence. In a word, Andersen is awesome! With over 10 million views on YouTube, independent album sales topping 30,000, a European Blues Award, Maple Blues Awards and Best Solo Performer at the Memphis Blues Challenge, Andersen’s worldwide fan base shows no signs of slowing down.

“The blues is a big part of what I do, and in my solo show some tunes are straight-up blues, for sure,” he says. “But I would never stand beside B.B. King and say, ‘I play blues, too.’ None of my albums are blues albums – I’ve won blues awards with them, but I wouldn’t say they’re blues albums.”
The Weber Brothers

Friday, March 24 @ 8 pm; $15

Lynne Hanson & River City Junction
Black Sheep Inn, Wakefield QC
Saturday, April 8 @ 8:30 pm

We all carry a little bit of weight on our shoulders, but being compelled toward songwriting is a welcome burden for Lynne Hanson. At first listen, her warm, gritty, boot stompin’ music leads you through the southern USA, though Hanson hails from Ottawa, Canada. Her sound is born honestly through a lifetime of experience and influence, expressed through the rock, blues and roots that bleeds from her very being.

In her latest “Uneven Ground” (April 2017), produced by Winnipeg’s Scott Nolan, Hanson explores the realm of giving sound advice through songwriting, and fighting back against the devil within us. Permeating the recording is a restrained intensity, elevated with a finger-picked beat, beautiful piano accompaniments, dobro and wind instruments. The title track ‘Uneven Ground’ is a full-on blues assault, conjuring images a glamorous chanteuse stretched out in front of a baby grand in a smoky nightclub. All together, “Uneven Ground” is an authentic expression of Hanson’s rustic style, brimming over with imagery and cleverly penned lyrics, and a crystal-clear production. It steps proudly into the next generation of roots and blues music, while still respecting traditions.   

River City Junction is a Canadian Blues/Retro-Rock power trio, long steeped in the traditions of Blues and Rock ‘n' Roll. A rich blend of old school Chicago Blues, Motown, and Classic Rock, their music forms a very potent sonic cocktail that is raw, organic and uplifting. Leaning heavily on their roots, River City Junction's driving sound is deeply infused with elements of yesteryear yet remains distinctively their own.

Boogie Patrol has steadily built their reputation as one of Western Canada’s premier act’s and has garnered acclaim and an enthusiastic following since the group’s inception in 2007.  A 5-piece group that continues to create superb original music based on their collective influences. We’re talking Blues and Rock ’n’ Soul, with a dose of funk all thrown into the melting pot to create what is Boogie Patrol.
