Juno-Winning ‘Blues Boss’ Joined by Downchild Members for Show

On March 22nd, from 3-7 pm, Fat Tony’s Pizzeria (Capone’s Nightclub) in St. Catherines, ON, pays tribute to two great founding fathers of Rock’n’Roll – Big Joe Turner and Pete Johnson, for Bluesaganzafest, an afternoon of live blues featuring some of the finest artists in the nation.

Headline performers will include Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Juno and Maple Blues Award-winning West Coast stride and boogie woogie piano master in concert. The Blues Boss will be appearing with alumni of Downchild Blues Band, singer Chuck Johnson and horn player Pat Carey.

Singer Chuck Jackson, Maple Blues Award winner for “Male Vocalist of the Year” (2007), is a blues shouter in the style of Big Joe. He, along with bandmate and 6 time winner & current holder of the Maple Blues Award for “Horn Player of the Year”, Pat Carey , will provide us with all the elements needed to recreate that wonderful moment in time when Rock’n’Roll was born! This unique performance represents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear these masters of early Rock’n’Roll perform together on the same stage.
