The Blues Band

THE BLUES BAND - 38 Years and Back for More 2017 sees The Blues Band Celebrate their 38th year together Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher. Many of the Blues Band\'s 21st century fans weren\'t even born when these five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, decided to fly in the face of musical fashion in 1979 and form a band \'just to play the blues\'. No one could have predicted that, 36 years on, they\'d still be dazzling audiences with their showmanship and virtuosity. About 20 albums and thousands of gigs later, they\'ve earned a reputation around the world as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms. With this line-up, it\'s hardly surprising. Doors: 7.30pm 14+ (Accompanied by an adult)

JW Jones Live At The Borderline

CHROME NOTE PRESENTS: JW JONES ------------------------------------------------------------------------ JW-JONES - JUNO AWARD NOMINEE - HIGH ENERGY BLUES ARTIST! "JW-Jones is a red hot young Canadian guitar slinger/singer", says Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge. Canadas national newspaper, the Globe and Mail, referred to this Maple Blues Award winner as one of this countrys top blues guitar stars. Billboard called JW part of a new wave of young talent moving onto Canadas blues stage. Jones has released eight albums, performed in nineteen countries and four continents, and averages over one hundred shows per year. Canadian-born Hollywood actor Dan Aykroyd, known for his Blues Brothers persona Elwood Blues, has called JWs group an "amazing blues band. In early 2015, the legendary Buddy Guy performed with Jones in Chicago, then invited JW to trade riffs with him on two sold-out Canadian dates. He also joined him for a fourth time later in the year at his club, Buddy Guy\'s Legends. Jones is becoming more in-demand than ever before, as Woodstock legends, Canned Heat, continued the trend by inviting him to be their special guest on two festivals in Ontario. American magazine Blues Revue stated that Jones style is a fluid amalgam of T-Bone Walkers big, bright chords, Johnny Guitar Watsons slashing leads, and Clarence Gatemouth Browns jazzy sting. JW was born in Ottawa, Ontario and started playing drums at 13, at that time into Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and classic rock. A few years later, after witnessing a B.B. King performance, he fell in love with the blues and decided to take up the guitar. Soon he was absorbing the influences of artists such as Albert King, Freddie King, T-Bone Walker, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Anson Funderburgh, and Jimmie Vaughan, and later, West Coast guitarists Junior Watson and Little Charlie Baty. In 1998 he won a Battle of the Bands contest, and the following year he won a Blues Guitar Riff-Off competition and used the studio time prize to record his debut album, Defibrillatin\'. Jones was the first artist signed to Toronto-based label Northern Blues Music, which released the album in 2000, as well as his next five CDs. JWs epiphany moment came shortly after signing with Northern Blues: I was in college for a computer course. The label was flying me across the country to play in showcases, and I had gigs every weekend. My focus was on the music and not school. I remember walking away from the college one day, and just like the movies... I looked back at the school, and said to myself, I am never coming back here. It was the best decision Ive ever made. After that, it was complete concentration on building my career. He started by garnering three consecutive Maple Blues Award nominations and being invited to perform onstage with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Little Charlie & the Nightcats, and Junior Watson. Jones second release, Bogarts Bounce, included performances by singer/harp player Kim Wilson and pianist Gene Taylor of The Fabulous Thunderbirds Kim Wilson produced JWs next release, My Kind of Evil, which featured well-known Canadian singer/guitarist Colin James as guest. In 2006, JW released his fourth album, Kissing in 29 Days, including performances by David Fathead Newman, Ray Charles main saxophone player for 12 years. In a feature article entitled JW-Jones A Rising Star Chases the Sound of Thunder(birds), Blues Revue magazine stated that JW-Jones is highly regarded in blues circles. One of the tracks, Parasomnia, appeared on a Guitar World featured CD, Guitar Masters Vol. 2, along with B.B. King, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and Carlos Santana. On Jones next release, Bluelisted (2008), he got the chance to work with two of his guitar heroes, Little Charlie Baty and Junior Watson, and rhythm section Richard Innes and Larry Taylor. The liner notes were provided by Dan Aykroyd, who wrote "crisp covers and cool originals make this record a yellow dot must-buy". For his next project, JW headed to Memphis famed Sun Studios to record with blues legend Hubert Sumlin, the blues guitarist who worked with Howlin Wolf for over 20 years and was named one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. The resulting album, Midnight Memphis Sun, was released in 2010 and also featured guest Charlie Musselwhite, who stated that JW Jones is one of the best guitar players Ive heard in a long time. He and his band do great tunes with cool arrangements and I love listening to them. They play with taste and fire at the same time. Jones 2012 release, Seventh Hour was the second release in a row to hit #1 on B.B. Kings Bluesville on XM Sirius Satellite radio, and led to the bands opening for B.B. at the Ottawa Bluesfest, and an endorsement deal with Gibson guitars. Recently Jones was honoured by the Ottawa Business Journal and Ottawa Chamber of Commerce by being named one of the Forty Under 40, (out of 250 nominations), a salute to the regions talented entrepreneurs who balance business achievement, professional expertise and community involvement. His first Blind Pig release, Belmont Boulevard, was produced in Nashville by Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge, whos helmed projects for Buddy Guy, George Thorogood, and Susan Tedeschi. JW chose Hambridge to produce because This CD is all about getting out of my comfort zone musically and lyrically, working with a big producer and creating a high-energy experience that matches our live show, and I knew Tom was the man to make that happen. For the songs on the album, Jones decided for the first time to delve deep into his personal life and tell some of his stories that hed never revealed before. He co-wrote many of the songs with Hambridge, a noted songwriter whose tunes have been recorded by Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rascal Flatts, and Delbert McClinton, and featured in movies, commercials, and television. Digging deep into some very serious personal stories from my past and turning them into songs has been liberating and part of the healing process. I hope these songs resonate with listeners that have been through similar experiences, said Jones. Musicians that tour with Jones; Mathieu Lapense (drums) and the heavy grooves of Laura Greenberg (bass) always add a powerful energy to the stage. The future does indeed look bright for this upcoming star. Known for his high-energy, crowd-pleasing shows, Jones recently opened tours for the late Johnny Winter and one of his strongest influences, Jimmie Vaughan (about whom JW penned a song on the new album). Now, with his latest recording, hes excited about reaching an even wider audience. Belmont Boulevard hit #9 on Billboard sales charts in the United States, and was nominated for JUNO and Maple Blues Awards in Canada.
