The Kingpins took to the stage last night at Blue Frog Studios in White Rock B.C. and treated the in-studio audience and the live-streaming audience to a wonderful musical night of the Blues!! Talk about an all star lineup! Big Hank Lionhart, Jack Lavin, Steve Cross, Steve Ranta, Ross Hall and Jerry Cook brought a wealth of talent and original high energy R&B to the Blue Frog stage. Again, working with the pandemic protocol, Blue Frog could only accommodate 30 guests in the studio, but those who couldn’t get tickets, were able to enjoy the show through Live Streaming. One more Live Streaming show is coming up next Saturday, as “Ladies Sing the Blues” hits the stage. Go to bluefrogstudios.ca for more information.
Jim Byrnes and his band proved last night that Live Music Wasn’t Dead! Blue Frog Studios in White Rock B.C. was rocking in a “Socially Distancing” way as Jim played to an intimate crowd of 30 people practicing all the protocols put in place due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. Chairs and tables were spaced 2 metres/6 feet apart and the guests were required to hand sanitize before entering the building. Due to the distancing rules, instead of a studio of 100 people, there was only room for a third of that. And what a treat it was for those fans. Truly, up close and personal! The first show was streamed live around the world. The Virtually Live concert was Jim’s idea, as he said he and the band just wanted to get back to playing music in front of an audience! Something that hasn’t been happening since the pandemic hit. It was the 3 concert in a series of 5 for Blue Frog. Still to come, The Kingpins on July 11th, and Ladies Sing the Blues on July 18th. Check out BlueFrogStudios.ca for all the information.
They’re back! A year has gone by since the Tribute to the Jersey Boys played the Blue Frog Studios in White Rock British Columbia, Canada. Last year the group played 12 sold out shows and this year, it’s lucky 13! The tribute, led by Nick Stice and (Valli Girl), Michelle Zelina, are joined by Noah Fisher, Greg Stout and James Francis. They come together with harmonies straight out of The Four Seasons. Four Seasons hits, some Doo Wop and some early 60’s hits make this an amazing show. Last night was opening night, and the group didn’t disappoint, the sold out crowd was blown away. Great to have the group back at the Blue Frog, and if you’d like to see the show, go to BlueFrogLive.ca and see how you can live stream the February 15th show, and future Blue Frog concerts.
Well, how time flies! It’s been 2 years since Mike Demers and The Lonely took to the stage at the Blue Frog Studios in White Rock British Columbia. The Lonely, is a tribute to the late Roy Orbison. After extensive touring, The Lonely once again sold out 2 nights, 4 shows at the Blue Frog. It’s a great show featuring all of the Orbison hits, including some from the Travelling Wilburys phase of his life. This year, Mike was given one of the first copies of a coffee table book on the life of Roy Orbison. It was given to him by the Orbison family, and Mike is taking it to all his shows, and giving audience members a chance to write their remembrances in the book. He’ll then return the book for the Orbison family to see. What a great honour for Mike and the band to be held in such high regard by the Orbisons. The Lonely is headed for Ontario for a number of shows, so if they’re in your area, make sure you take in the show, and add your name to the book. Tonight is night 2 of the Lonely, the first show at 7:00 PST will be streaming live on the Blue Frog Facebook page. Enjoy!
