Doucette set to rock Rhumba Room

The White Rock Blues Society presents Canadian guitar great Jerry Doucette on Saturday, November 8th at The Rhumba Room in White Rock. Doucette will be backed for the performance by The Jason Buie Band, with Marko Ibara (drums), Brian Scott (bass) and Sig (keyboards). Opening the show is Mud Dog with Steve Sainus and Christopher Allen.

Vancouver based guitarist and composer Jerry Doucette is described as one of Canada’s most influential and under-rated performers. Over the last thirty-plus years he has carved his name in the music industry as a pop-rock giant. Best known for his monumental hit record Mama Let Him Play (1977), which saw him touring North America opening for the likes of Bob Welch and Meatloaf, Doucette has gone on to release a handful of records that showcase his guitar prowess and a keen pop sense, as well as doing session work with the likes of Aldo Nova and Prism, and live performances opening for the likes of The Atlanta Rhythm Section, The Doobie Brothers and The Beach Boys.

Ongoing legal battles over control of Doucette’s music were finally laid to rest in the early ’90’s and he re-emerged from the experience with the Price of an Education (1995). His most recent release is his Vintage CDRom featuring a collection of 17 of his best tunes re-mastered, 3 live cuts, and a rare audio interview accompanied by a slide show featuring over 60 photos, promotional items, billboard charts and more.
