Chef Sean is planning a delicious New Orleans inspired buffet. Dance the night away with one of YYC Music Association’s favorite blues band, Bluesland Horn Band.
Calgary’s Bluesland Horn Band is an eight-piece group in the classic tradition whose members have graced the stages of festivals and shows throughout North America. The band’s repertoire of originals and covers ranges through styles such as:
Blues fans may remember the band which played through Western Canada from 1998 to 2004, releasing one album called “1st Street”. The band was reformed in 2013 and released an album called “Down In New Orleans” which landed in the top 10 most played blues album in Canadian radio for 2014. The album “Radio Waves” was released in 2016 and went to number one on the Canadian Blues Radio Network. The band has two pay-per-view tv specials to their credit and their fourth album “Let’s Go Dancing” was this summer’s #1 album for Canadian radio play in the roots/folk/blues genre.
The Toronto Blues Society music review of “Let’s Go Dancing” concludes with “this band sure sounds good!”. No less a blues master than Buddy Guy has played the band’s songs on his radio show saying “you’ll be hearing more from this great Canadian band”!
Welcome to Bluesland!
Mardi Gras inspired attire encouraged.
