With a reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan, The Slocans have been winning over audiences from Merlefest to RockyGrass and everywhere in between. On their much-anticipated new album Queen City Jubilee (2019 Juno Award Nominee for Traditional Roots Album of the Year), The Slocans showcase their unique blend of bluegrass, old-time and folk with deep song-writing, lightning fast instrumentals and sawdust-thick vocals. With their trademark raucous energy, this new album presents The Slocan Ramblers at the top of their game – writing and playing tunes to keep you up all night. This is roots music without pretension, music intended to make you feel something – say hello to your new favourite band. Read more

Poppa Dawg & Friends

9:00 pm - Thu, Aug 22nd, 2019
at The Blue Gator Bar & Grill

Hailing from the 'Left Coast' of Canada, Poppa Dawg has toured extensively throughout Western and Northern Canada with stints in La Paz, Mexico at The City of Peace Blues Festival and most recently, in 2013 as a participant at the 29th International Blues Challenge in Memphis. They made it to the semi-finals there and along the way forged some very strong friendships with friends around the world. Sharing the stage as a side man with such artists as Sonny Rhodes, Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne and Harpdog Brown and as an opener for many years for John Mayall, Colin James, Jeff Healey, Powder Blues and so many others has been Poppa Dawg’s classroom and the education has not been lost on him as he presents the blues with a unique, tongue-in-cheek view and a deep and respectful appreciation of the music. Having garnered critical acclaim with 4 Cds both as himself and with his former band Dogskin Suit, the music runs all the way from Memphis to Motown. The most recent CD ‘What You Got’ features Canada’s own JW Jones on guitar on the track ‘Dub Step’ with Dawg and Dub doing a call and answer at the end that speaks the blues! Read more
