Canada’s best known and best loved blues outfit, The Legendary Downchild Blues Band celebrated their 45th Anniversary in style with the release of their Juno Award Blues Album of the Year (2014)Can You Hear The Music”. With such classic hits as “Flip Flop & Fly”, “I Got Everything I Need (Almost)” and “Shotgun Blues”, Downchild has had a major impact here at home and established serious credentials around the world alongside contemporaries, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker and Buddy Guy. With their signature Jump-blues style and sweet, infectious sound, it’s a sure bet your toes will be tapping and your hips swinging.
 
Downchild’s 17th album, “Can You Hear the Music” starts the way all things Downchild should; with the jump blues sound that makes you want to jump up and dance. And, as band leader Donnie Walsh will tell you himself, that’s the sound Downchild audiences all over the world want to hear. The tracks “Scattered” and "One in a Million", actually came together during the recording sessions.
 
Walsh and his band mates have won countless music industry awards, including a Juno Award for Best Roots and Traditional Album (1991). They also received a Juno Award nomination for Blues Album of The Year (2005) for their album “Come On In”. Yet, for all the hits and awards, The Legendary Downchild Blues Band is perhaps best known as the inspiration for the Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi hit film The Blues Brothers. In fact, Dan Aykroyd says, “There would be no Blues Brothers if it weren't for Downchild.
 
 
 
 
Always inspiring, The Legendary Downchild Blues Band is a Canadian institution and revered by blues fans around the world, with the icing being that they are sounding and performing better than ever!

 UPCOMING SHOWS

Friday August 11

 
 
 


 
 
 
Same Sun Summer Jam - Saturday August 26th
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hi Rodney,
 
I'd like to introduce you to Mark Hildebrand. He's a local blues artist that was recently nominated by the Canadian Gospel Music Association for a Covenant award for best Blues Song of the Year.
 
Last year we held a small music festival on our one acre in Port Kells to celebrate, and everyone asked us to do it again, so on Saturday, August 26, we are! Address 8964 184 St. Surrey.

 
Mark will be releasing new music at this event, and we'd be honoured to have you there.
 
There will be six or seven bands of different genres playing, with Mark and his band, The Recollectors, closing the show.
 
We will have food by Damiano's, beer, (exclusively by Red Truck), and wine, arts and crafts for sale, all under the stars for an evening of memory making.
We are hoping you'll consider passing this invitation along to all the music lovers you know. Entry is by donation, and prices for food and drink will be very reasonable, so it'll be a night anyone can afford.
 
If this interests you at all, I'd be pleased to send you a poster, or other marketing materials for you to use at your discretion.
 
Feel free to contact me at your convenience via return email, or at 604-371-1841.
Thanks so much for supporting local blues artists!
