International Harmonica Showcase Saturday April 11th

Harpdog Brown has conjured up a wicked assembly of harp heavy weights to share their love of the instrument. Vancouver’s "sons of the blues", The Steve Kozak Band will kick off this evening with his own brand of "kick ya in da head and call ya mamma" blues, featuring "Sechelt Red" on the harp. Our own Harpdog Brown will be backed by Jason Buie and a rhythm section TBA. Finally, our 1st harp master from America will be attending and tending to our needs. Hank Shreve comes to us via Oregon’s melting pot of great harp wizards such as Paul deLay and Curtis Salgado....to name a few. Hank is a young yet wise, respectful lover of the blues, and I know this will be a show NOT to miss. Oh, one other thing, The Dog will be releasing his newest CD "Unleashed" recorded back in ’95, and let me tell you this,"if you have not bought a copy yet......you’re gonna wanna" Harpdog Brown is the real deal and has put together an outstanding showcase of blues harmonica talent. Muddy Award winner and Juno nominee, Harpdog never fails to give 100% of his harp and soul, every time he hits the stage. Check out this YouTube video link of Harpdog Brown playing his original tune, “How Come” at the Yale on Friday night, the first of two nights. Harpdog is hosting the International Harmonica Showcase this coming Saturday April 11th at the Pacific Inn Hotel aka “Pink Palace” Rhumba Room - 1160 King George Hwy.
