Juno nominated blues band the Perpetrators play at Mikey’s Juke Joint and Eatery in Calgary on Friday, Feb. 29.

This hard driving trio of youthful blues players first backed legends such as Hubert Sumlin, Louisiana Red, Paul “Wine” Jones as the house band gig at a local Winnipeg club.

The Perpetrators released their debut self-titled album in 2005, capturing the attention of blues fans and media alike. In 2006 the group toured Europe and released their The Gas and the Clutch, nominated for a Juno Award for Blues Recording of the Year. The group has also been nominated for Maple Blues awards for Best Electric Act (2005, 2006) and a win at the Western Canadian Music Awards for Outstanding Blues Recording (2005).

Their third release, Tow Truck (2007) is to be followed by the recording of a soon-to-be-released live album and a second European tour which includes the recording of live radio specials in Germany and Belgium.
