Fifty years is a long time …

backstage copy

Hard to believe on September 7th, I will be reaching a half century on this planet ( 47 years if you count the times I was in a different world as a teenager).

Please help me celebrate and at the same time – raise money for Sax player Johnny Beaudine. Johnny lost his belongings in a fire and requires help to get furniture and all the little stuff which is essential to feeling ‘ at home’.

Personal mementos cannot be replaced, so this evening will also be an opportunity for all of us to lift Johnny’s spirits through music and song. 

*Please attend and enjoy an evening of good music.

Listen Below for the line up !

Roomful of Blues – From B​.​B. King to Colin James; The Little Big Band That Could .​.​.

Chris Vachon plays guitar for Roomful of Blues …

download (4)

For forty – five years, the band plays in a roomful of Blues fans. Opening up for or backing guys like B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton. 

In a Canadian connection, the band is most known as being Colin James’ ‘Little Big Band’. A pretty good resume for a band that does not need to be part of anything. On their own – one of the best Blues and Swing Bands in the music market.

Please listen below as Chris talks about all the above and his own experience and thoughts as a guitar player.

Until now.

Please listen below as Rob speaks of his latest project and his beginnings in singing. A five year old pitch – perfect Freddie Mercury is a long way away from Country, Folk and Blues …
