MonkeyJunk-Juno Award Winners Friday July 22nd, 6pm
MonkeyJunk are keeping the spirits of Muddy Waters and the other roots giants alive with their own unique brand of music. Check it out – you won’t be disappointed.” – David Wilcox
The 2008 birth of the Ottawa-based band MonkeyJunk came along just when music fans needed them the most. They brought an accessible and refreshing blend of swamp-rock roots and blues to the table and haven’t looked back. In the relatively short time they’ve been performing and recording together, the members of MonkeyJunk have won a collective 20 Maple Blues Awards, two Canadian Independent Music Awards, a Blues Music Award (USA), and have been nominated twice for a JUNO Award, taking home the coveted hardware in 2012.
Studebaker John and The Hawks. Legendary Chicago Blues Journeyman (and was chosen for a tour by the Yardbirds as their lead guitarist!) Friday Sept. 16, 6pm.
Studebaker John Grimaldi was born in Chicago in 1952 and heard the blues firsthand from Big Walter Horton, "One-Armed" John Wrencher, Johnny Littlejohn and other regulars on Maxwell Street. "I can remember a time when you could see Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, he'd play in his own club, Hound Dog Taylor would always be around Maxwell Street. J.B. Hutto, too. Being able to see them perform live was breathtaking. I'm basically self-taught and I'd pick things up by just watching them."
Eddie Shaw & The Wolf Gang-Legendard sax player and band leader for Howlin' Wolf. Band also features Eddies' guitar shredding son Vaan Shaw on Guitar. Sunday October 16th, 6pm.
