Blues at The Cove Series 2023/24 (SEE FULL ROSTER AT BOTTOM!!!)

Did you say Blues at…The Cove? Yes! Well, you knew that! For 17 incredible years of music, laughter, community and overall great times, Blues on the Rideau has been one of the longest running Blues music series in Canada!

Thanks to the team of James Doran and his wife Diane Leduc-Doran and their Choose the Blues Productions, thousands of ecstatic Blues and live music fans have flocked to The Cove Inn to enjoy evenings of all-out dancing to Canada’s greatest JUNO and Maple Blues Award winning Blues acts. We thank them for all of those years of partnership and honour them by dedicating the 2023/24 Series to them as we transition to Blues at The Cove, highlighting some of the best of the series of the years!

Imagine a warm, intimate venue setting in a historic waterside inn on the Rideau Canal featuring a tasty buffet dinner and a donation to a local charity and you have Blues at The Cove! Join us for the new season!

JACK DE KEYZER (From www.jackdekeyzer.com

Acclaimed guitarist, singer, song writer, band leader and producer, Jack de Keyzer rarely sits still. For 46 years or roughly a couple million miles , de Keyzer has been hitting the road , air and studio to bring his brand of guitar driven blues around the globe.  With 12 records, 1 DVD , 2 Junos and 7 Maple Blues Awards, de Keyzer delivers the goods wherever, whenever he performs. Playing  over 100 shows a year, de Keyzer’s music is steeped in Chicago blues, London England’s (de Keyzer’s birth place) blues rock, Detroit’s Motown, Muscle Shoals deep soul,   Memphis’  rock and roll, and Philadelphia’s funky soul jazz .  De Keyzer knows first hand as he has played with many first generation pioneers of these sounds and styles, Bo Diddley, Otis Rush, Etta James, King Biscuit Boy and Ronnie Hawkins to name a few.  His latest recording  TRIBUTE (2020)  features twelve rousing new original blues, rock and soul songs and pays tribute to the great blues and rock guitar masters, singers and song writers de Keyzer has been influenced and inspired by through the years.  A tour de force by an artist at his peak powers. See and hear Jack de Keyzer  with his incredible band  on the TRIBUTE tour.
