TBS Winter Lineup
THE KEITH HALLETT TRIO, SATURDAY FEB. 20 AT 8 PM, DUCKY’S (PART OF THE SACKVILLE’S WINTERFEST)
Keith Hallett has come a long way since we first saw him open a show for us and then again touring with Garrett Mason a couple of years ago. He has been working hard, honing his sound in the only honest way there is in the blues: on the road. As a result, he has a developed a tough, old time sound that is his own. There is something real going on folks, and you can listen to his new album here, and see some recent video here and here. This show will be held at Ducky’s and seating is limited so get your tickets early for this one.
The Delta Generators (Boston), Friday, March 11, time and location TBA
There is a real buzz around the fourth album from the Delta Generators which should be out in March, which isn't surprising. Every album they have released so far has been getting increasing attention with the last one winning the Blues album of the year from the Independent Music Awards. The new album, which has already met its Pledgemusic fundraising goal, is tightly written and produced should hopefully get them the international attention they deserve; you can get a taste here.
The Johnny Max Band (Toronto) Friday, April29, George’s Roadhouse, 9 PM (part of the Bordertown Festival)
Touring on the back of his 7th album (2 of which have been nominated for Junos), Johnny will be bringing his particular brand of roadhouse soul to our very own Roadhouse. Johnny plays more than the usual 12 bar blues, borrowing heavily from R&B and soul in his delivery so that you can expect a foot-stompin’, shoulder-shaking evening from a veteran Canadian band.
