Bluesons ( Festiblues)
On November 24th, a great bunch of friends of the Blues got together at the Maison de la Culture de Ahunsic to sing and play the night away. We all showed up in support of the Festiblues, who were literally rained out last summer. The room was filled with enthusiastic blues fans and friends of the Festiblues.
Québec City - Musiciens en Fête 2012
Sunday September 9th was a very special date for me. I took part in an event in Québec City called "Musiciens en Fête 2012" produced by La Boîte à Musicien, a non-profit organization that works to encourage young musicians and singers. Thirteen artists/groups performed on the superb stage at the Jean-Paul Tardif Hall on the campus of the St-Charles Garnier College. There was a whole lotta talent at the party! Bravo everyone!
Harley Show 2013
The 2013 Harley Show has come and gone, but not without leaving me with a truckload (Toyota truckload that is) of great memories. I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of Québec's best-loved rockers; Éric Lapointe, Michel Pagliaro, Marjo, Martin Deschamps, Nanette Workman, Sebastien Plante, Jonas, Steve Hill, Papillon, Robert Lavoie and Elsa Leblanc. The introduction also featured a trio of young musicians, 12 and 13 years old, who did a great job on the timeless "Wipeout".
NorAndBlues - Thanks for the Memories
A big Thank You to the fine folks in Rouyn-Noranda who came out to the show we put on for NorAndBlues on November 10th at the Paramount. Great evening thanks to the participation of Roger Mann on guitar, Bernard "Fern" Quessy on keys and Blair MacKay on drums. We had a blast.
On several occasions during this incredible summer of 2012 I had the pleasure of takiing to the road with Martin Deschamps and his team. Very, very kool, lotsa good rock, lotsa decibels, lotsa great fans. We tripped hard from the first show in Québec City on June 8th right up to the last kick ass performance in Val d'Or on August 11th. I hope the folks who come out to hear the band are as happy with their decision as I am for having participated in Martin Deschamps summer 2012 tour.
