Blues on the Rideau – David Rotundo Band
May 12 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The ever-popular Blues on the Rideau series returns to The Cove Inn on Friday May 12th and Saturday May 13th, 2023 with a performance by the David Rotundo Band.
If you’ve been around the Canadian Blues scene for the past 30 years harmonica ace, singer/songwriter & guitarist David Rotundo needs no introduction. Originally from Toronto he became obsessed with the Blues after seeing James Cotton play in 1991. He took up the harmonica and traveled to Chicago, Memphis, Clarksdale, New Orleans and Austin learning how to play from the masters before returning to T.O. where he performed with several different groups, including a stint with Jack De Keyser, before starting his own band in 2001. David now plays all over the world wintering in Mexico and touring in eastern Europe in the summers where he has a huge following. And no wonder – he delivers one of the most entertaining, high energy shows you will see anywhere. His most recent album (his 5th) called “So Much Trouble” was produced by the legendary Lee Oskar and has garnered international accolades and air play. Over the years David has been one of the most popular performers at BOTR – this will be his 9th visit. He’ll have his full band with him for the two Dinner & Shows and will also be doing an ACOUSTIC LUNCH on Saturday from noon to 2 pm with Cove Manager and bass player SEAMUS COWAN. David’s shows have always Sold Out so reserve early if you want to be there!
