The R&B All Stars did it again. Blew the roof off Blue Frog Studios in White Rock British Columbia, Canada! What a series of sold out shows this weekend. Solid performances every night. This year the R&B All Stars celebrate its 40th year on the Vancouver music scene. And to strengthen the band, 3 new members have been added to the All Star lineup, Bill Sample on keys, Tim Porter on lead guitar and vocals, and Nathan Aswell teaming up with Joani Bye on lead vocals. Once again have a winning combination when you add these new members to the already talented cast of players.. The Blue Frog audiences responded with standing ovations for every show.
It was Stevie Ray Vaughan night at the Blue Frog in White Rock British Columbia Canada! Russell Earl Marsland paid tribute to the late Bluesman last night, something not many guitarists are talented enough to pull off, but Russell treated the faithful to 2 nights, 4 sold out shows of spectacular SRV. Backed by an outstanding band, Marsland gave an outstanding performance, and once again the Blue Frog crowd went home happy. All the hits and more! Russell Marsland is the co-founder of the legendary R&B All Stars band and had the opportunity to meet SRV. It was a power packed Blues show that showcased the talents of not only Marsland, but also the members of the amazing backup band. A great night!
Rock band Chilliwack rocked White Rock B.C. last night, part of a series of concerts sponsored by TD Bank, the City of White Rock, White Rock Business Improvement Assoc. ReMax and Blue Frog Studios. The concerts are FREE and will be held on Marine Drive Thursdays from 7:00 – 10:00pm, with two special Saturday shows: July 15th in the Five Corners shopping district of uptown White Rock, and the grand finale at the beach on August 19th. Over a thousand attended the outdoor concert last night. Bill Henderson and the band were amazing, and thankfully the weather co-operated to help make it a perfect Summer evening! Next up, the R&B All Stars, on July 15th at 5 Corners, a street party, part of the annual Bike Race, the Tour de White Rock.
I had the chance to MC a special presentation for the White Rock Business Improvement Association today, held at the Blue Frog Studios in White Rock B.C. It was to announce the lineup of bands performing at the 2017 TD Concerts by the Pier, happening this Summer. Outdoor concerts by the Pier by headliners, Chilliwack, Eagle Eyes, Led Zepagain, Little Destroyer and Platinum Blonde! And a street dance at Five Corners with the R&B All Stars. It’s going to be quite a Summer for music in White Rock!
The Greatest Band in all the Land! The R&B All Stars rocked a Saturday night at the Blue Frog Studios in White Rock B.C. tonight. With a 6 piece horn section, and Joani Bye and David Steele on lead vocals, how could it go wrong! They just don’t make bands like this anymore! 2 sold out shows at the Blue Frog, and could have sold more. The RBA had them up and dancing and singing along! What a great night. Another White Rock appearance by the band is in the works for the Summer…..watch for that! Kelly and Juanita at the Blue Frog have to be commended for putting together another great night of live musical entertainment!
