Blues on the Rideau – Mike Goudreau & The Boppin’ Blues Band
May 5 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
$100

The ever-popular Blues on the Rideau series returns to The Cove Inn on Friday May 5th, 2023 with a performance by Mike Goudreau & The Boppin’ Blues Band.

Mike & the BBB are back! It’s been WAY too long since their last visit to BOTR (2009). Mike is a great guitarist and singer/songwriter as well as a talented Producer and Arranger and his dynamite 6 piece band includes a 3 piece horn section. Their unique boppin’, swing style of Jump Blues delivered with Quebec joie de vivre is guaranteed to have everyone up and dancing. I first saw these guys play over 30 years ago when I was living in the Eastern Townships and I’ve been a big fan ever since. Mike is one of the most prolific and versatile artists I know. He plays Blues, Jazz and classic Rock all equally well and has released an amazing 22 albums to date. Many of his songs have also been picked up by a Licensing Agency in California and have been used in hundreds of network TV shows and films. And he’s backed a long list of famous artists over his career including the late, great Dutch Mason, harmonica legend Lee Oskar, Quebec icons Robert Charlebois and Roch Voisine, Diunna Greenleaf, John Hammond and more. He’s toured throughout Quebec, eastern Canada, the U.S., Mexico, Europe and even Russia over the years. If you’ve seen this band before check out some of their YouTubes and you’ll know why you want be here for this show. Be prepared to become a big new fan!

“A rockin’, rompin’, stompin’ good time….solid, creamy, tight and tasty licks executed with precision and class”  Billie Lucas, CHLY 101.7 FM, Nanaimo BC
