BIG HANK’S TRIBUTE TO THE BLUE’S SONGS OF CHRISTMAS

Published

on

“…This is a great show. I mixed it last year and it was awesome!…” Carl Stretton
If you’re a music fan in the city, you probably know Carl Stretton.  He’s been mixing bands, playing bass, hosting jams, and supporting music for decades.  So when he says a show is awesome, I generally pay attention.  Here’s some more from Carl:

“Blues fans old and young (all ages) are welcome. Some great players on this tour. Big Hank with a great lineup. Some Canadian greats. Jack Lavin from Powder Blues Band on bass, Dennis Meneely of Streetheart and many bands, Saxophonist Dave Babcock from Edmonton… The ensemble is pretty stellar and a great blues dance party is guaranteed. Family friendly. Fun Times!”

Here’s a video that shows you all you need to know.

BIG HANK’S TRIBUTE TO THE BLUE’S SONGS OF CHRISTMAS

Big Hank Lionhart and the R&B Kingpins are going to fill your ears and spirits with the glorious gift of Christmas Blues!  Featuring a brand new line-up, fresh songs and a whole lot of good cheer this will be the ‘don’t miss’ show of the Holiday Season.

This show is a collection of traditional Blues Christmas tunes from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s 50’s, and 60’s, by the likes of Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, BB King, Eric Clapton, Charles Brown, Etta James and more.

It’s not the standard collection of carols; rather it’s a tribute that gives you a look into the souls of the fabulous music legends sharing their Christmas Blues. A refreshing take on a holiday concert, it has played to sold-out houses and received rave reviews across British Columbia for the past 4 years.

Call 403.406-6592 to reserve your ticket today!  $15 cover.
