8:00 pm : Darren Johnson
Solo show. 8pm, no cover.
For the last ten years, Darren has been a fixture on the Canadian blues and roots scene - working with the likes of Amos Garrett, Tim Williams, Jim Byrnes, John Lee Saunders, and The Blind Boys of Alabama to name a few. His music has been described as "somewhere in between Tom Waits and Leon Redbone, Howlin' Wolf and Willie Nelson". His songwriting is simple, yet deals with everyday situations for everyday people. His sound is a throwback to yesteryear, one may find themselves deceived by the contrast between what they are hearing verses what they are seeing... Hailing from Okotoks Alberta, Darren spends most of his time touring the western provinces of Canada as either a solo or duo act. Eastern Canada has received only a limited taste of Darren's music - tours in 2004, 2006 and 2008 garnered favorable responses. European audiences were introduced via a "mini" tour in 2003. Four albums later, Darren’s music has reached throughout the U.S., Europe, Japan, China, and Australia through CD sales.

8:30 pm : T. Buckley Trio
8:30pm, no cover.
The T. Buckley Trio deliver soulful laments and gritty truths, wrapped in a cowboy blanket to create a distinct western Canadian flavour. This Calgary trio has been turning heads since they first came onto scene in 2010 with their twist on \"a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll.\" T. Buckley acts as the trio\'s lead vocalist and principle songwriter; Derek Pulliam, on stand-up bass and vocals and Tim Leacock on electric guitar, mandolin and vocals. The band brings a more-than memorable stage presence and harmonies that create a sound much larger than their modest stage set up.
Thursday
October 26, 2017
8:30 pm : Bluessmyth
8:30pm, no cover.
Bluessmyth is a heavy blues band. The rhythmic foundation of Bluessmyth is laid down by Jason Yaholkoski’s deep, definitive bass playing, combined with bombastic, hammerhead drumming, and then is finished off with Chris Yaholkoski’s fire and brimstone guitar lines alongside his rich, classic blues voice. The band's original songs meld the guitar, bass and drums into the likes of a perfected jam session, and they prove themselves well in live concert. Apart from their three albums (30 Pieces of Silver - 2004, Bluessmyth - 2006 and Sola Gratia - 2009), Bluessmyth has performed a number of covers of the bands they've looked to for inspiration. These include Ben Harper, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and more. They have also covered many traditional gospel songs in their own fresh way of mixing blues and rock.

9:00 pm : Big Dave McLean
Seating starts at 7:30pm. Shows start at 9pm. $15. Please call 403-262-2666 to make your reservations, or email us your phone number & we will call you.

YOU keep coming so WE can keep 'em coming! Thank You Blues-Canners... WE <3 YOU! Thank you for supporting Calgary's Live Music scene!!!
A masterful guitarist and top notch harpist, McLean’s raw and gravelly vocals bespeak of a life lived to the fullest, and a career spent performing in and around those countless small towns that dot the Canadian prairies. When it comes to the blues, however, McLean’s heart firmly beats to the ghosts of the delta greats--especially the incomparable Muddy Waters, with whom he toured over two decades ago.
