They were Doin’ it Right, and Boppin’ with the Blues for 4 sold out shows at Blue Frog Studios in White Rock British Columbia this weekend! Tom Lavin and the Legendary Powder Blues band filled the Blue Frog with what they’ve been doing for 42 years….playing the Blues! It was great to see Tom again. We first met back in the early 80’s when Powder Blues was getting its start. It’s a band that has had a few personnel changes over the years, but the current lineup has been with Tom for over 30 years. Willie McCalder on keys was there at the beginning, Bill Runge on sax since 1980, And Vince Mai on trumpet, Tony Marryatt on bass, and Daryl Bennett, drums, all since 1985. The crowds loved every minute and Saturday night’s first show was streaming live over the world wide web. If you’d like to see what you missed, the show will be repeated on Blue Frog TV on Thursday February 27th. Go to bluefrogstudios.ca and follow the prompts to Blue Frog TV.
Well the boys did it again! Eagle Eyes rocked the stage at Blue Frog Studios in White Rock this holiday weekend. 7 sold out shows in 4 days! As usual they had the crowds on their feet dancing and singing along. This talented group and has over 120 years of professional touring experience, and has totally captured the harmonies of The Eagles. Jason Dunajski and Ray Harvey on guitar, Jack Gunderson, Bass, and Ken Ermter on drums, make up this talented group from Vancouver Island. The band is off to the U.S. for the next few months and into the Summer, playing Washington State, Oregon and Idaho. We’re thrilled that they make Blue Frog Studios one of the stops along the way each year. Next time they’re in town, make sure to get your tickets early, as they sell out fast.
The amazing talent of Katie Markham took to the Blue Frog stage last night and performed all the classics of Adele to 2 sold out concerts. Katie has been described, by Adele herself as, brilliant, glorious, amazing and spectacular! Katie was a finalist on the X Factor in the UK and was chosen by Adele to go on and tour with her tribute act. Backed by a terrific band and backup vocalists, she took the audience on a trip through the Adele Songbook in her show titled, “Someone like you.” She had the crowd standing and singing along, not wanting the show to end. Katie and the group performed here in White Rock almost 2 years ago, and here’s hoping she won’t wait that long again to pay another visit.
