From Mud Bay… with intensity!

West Coast blues heavyweights bring their show to the Kootenays

Mud Bay Blues Band

Over the past several decades, while West Kootenay R&B specialists Dr. Fun and the Nightcrawlers were meeting regional boogie-related needs… Mud Bay Slim and his colleagues have done the same out west on the Lower Mainland.

We’re talking about the originators and preservers of the Nicomekl Delta Blues, and they’re coming to Rossland’s Miners’ Hall this Friday night.

These guys are veterans of more than 30 years in the blues trenches and their love of what they do has never been more apparent.

With a rich history of headlining high-profile festivals and holding court at venues including Vancouver’s Yale Hotel, the Mud Bay Blues Band is happy to be making a Kootenay road trip. This’ll probably be the best $20 you’ve spent in a long, long, while.

The legendary Mud Bay Blues Band – this Friday, 8 p.m. at Rossland’s Miners’ Hall, 1765 Columbia Avenue.

For more info call 250-362-5288.

If you miss ’em, or just want more, catch ’em Saturday night at the Christina Lake Community Hall!
