A talented singer-songwriter, guitarist, and blues-rocker, Scott Ellison was born on February 13, 1954, in Tulsa, OK. By the \'70s, Tulsa had become an unexpected hotbed of blues-based rock bands as proven by both Eric Clapton and Freddie King\'s backing bands hailing from the area. It was the perfect match for Ellison with his heavy guitar shredding blues style. It was around that same time that Ellison began playing with legends in the business, such as country singer Jesseca James (Conway Twitty\'s daughter) in 1977 and renowned bluesman Clarence \"Gatemouth\" Brown in 1981. Ellison relocated to Los Angeles, CA by the mid-\'80s, however, keeping his music career going by playing with The Box Tops. The Shirelles, Marvalettes, JJ Jackson, The Drifters, The Coasters, Gary \"US\" Bonds and Peaches & Herb. By the \'90s he had formed his own blues band and opened for the likes of Joe Cocker, Roy Orbison, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Leon Russell, Bobby Bland and Buddy Guy.

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.
