TOOTS & STEVIE WITH KEITH BENNETT AND MILES BLACK

Sunday November 19, 2017
Doors 6:00pm | Show 7:00pm

​Keith Bennett and Miles Black pay homage to the incredible music of “Toots Thielemans” and “Stevie Wonder”. Keith’s chromatic harmonica and vocals combined with Miles’ velvety piano will combine to present a taste of Toots’ and Stevie’s musical stylings. Joel Fountain on Drums and Andre Lachance on bass join them.
Jean-Baptiste “Toots” Thielemans- Toots was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1922. His most important contribution was in "championing the humble harmonica". His harmonica theme song for “Sesame Street” was heard for 40 years. He played with Benny Goodman's band, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Kenny Wernerand Pat Metheny. Toots was one of the only musicians to have a successful career as a jazz harmonica player. His whistling and harmonica playing was heard on Old Spicecommercials in the 1960s. In 2009, Toots was given the highest U.S. honor that can be accorded to a jazz musician, the distinction of "Jazz Master," by The National Endowment for the Arts.
“Stevie Wonder” Stevland Hardaway Morris - A child prodigy, he began playing instruments at an early age, including piano, harmonica and drums. He is considered to be one of the most successful musical performers of the late 20th century. Wonder signed with Motown's Tamla label at the age of 11, and he continues performing and recording for Motown to this day. He is one of the most-awarded male solo artists, and has sold over 100 million records worldwide.

 

HARPDOG BROWN & THE TRAVELIN' BLUES SHOW

Friday November 24, 2017
Shows 7:00 pm & 9:15 pm

He's been called a blues evangelist and that is a very fitting moniker. "I speak the blues like it's the truth, and it is" he was recently quoted. "I do feel like I'm a servant of the people. And I do believe that music can heal people, especially blues music, if they pay attention to the good messages in the songs we perform." He delivers those
messages in the traditional sound of early electric blues. Think of the old Chess Records and Sun Records of the late 40's and early 50's. Harpdog says "Blues has a
healing power. It's a beautiful celebration of our perfectly flawed lives.

We help people forget about their issues for a moment and then they realize that we all have our issues,
and that it's ok."

Harpdog Brown is a gifted vocalist and an imaginative harmonica player. He is a threetime Maple Blues Award Winner (2014/2015/2016), Fraser Valley Music Award Winner,
three-time Western Canadian Music Awards Nominee, Juno Nominee and the only Canadian to win the coveted Muddy Award. In 2016 he was nominated for 3 Maple
Blues Awards (Harmonica Player, Male Vocalist and Album of the Year) for his latest
release Travelin’ With The Blues.

The album features a duet with Charlie Musselwhite and was produced by the Beale Street Blues Bopper himself, Little Victor with guest appearances from Kid Andersen, Big Jon Atkinson and other heavy hitters in the American blues scene.
