This Saturday Oct 1st. I'm stoked to perform at 'The Church of The Blues' aka The Dewdney Pub.
Located 10 minutes east of Mission BC in the quaint one- horse town of Dewdney/Deroche. There's a General store that sells feed and booze, a cafe, an old school arcade (minus Mz Pacman) and The Pub. I've only been there once two years back..My main man Wayne Evans took me for a summer afternoon spin in his suped up restored Volvo and somehow we ended up at the Dewdney.
We listened to my Mississippi Penitentiary call- and- answer- style- blues CD which complimented the contrast of the sense of freedom I felt curving through the Fraser Delta Farmland on the old Hwy 7 East with my favorite bass player. Wayne is the best date..He bought my fries as we listened to the Blues Jam that takes place every Sunday afternoon at the venue. Greg Thompson runs it, and runs it well. He has all house gear, a fantastic sound system and a loyal group of talented players who congregate for weekly music mass in the renovated Church which still holds the post and beam charm and history beyond what any of the walls can tell us.
This Saturday I'm fortunate enough again to have Jack Lavin on bass- simply put- he's the perfect fit..Steve Ranta bringing energy and style within bottomless talent..and Greg himself on drums! Some great players will drop by, I just know it. It's gonna be a party..Park your trials and tribulations at the door...There'll be plenty sinnin' with this line- up..Wendy Biscuit Blues will Confess with Absolution...
Show starts 8:30 pm
Oh Yeah...there's a shuttle bus for any and all drunkards who are interested.
