Rhythm and Blues Soulcase at Nelson’s Spiritbar

Nelson's Spiritbar hosts a presentation of three bands and over 15 musicians as part of the first ever Rhythm and Blues Soulcase.

Three bands and over 15 local musicians are showcased in this first ever Rhythm and Blues Soulcase at Spiritbar on Saturday night, with an eclectic rhythm blues soul collaboration from some of the regions finest musicians!

Be part of the audience for this live recording and for this Kootenay Co-op Radio membership drive event. Support live music and support local radio, bring your friends and dancing shoes.

The night kicks off with the sensational White Lightning Blues Band, followed by the band Citizens who will keep your groove moving, then the Jones Brothers will feature the soul and sounds of Howlin’ Dan, Big Mama Blue, Kevin Armstrong, Soul Sista Steph, Kenny ‘high pockets’ Gile, and Robin Clegg. Other significant names in the band include the founder and co-ordinator C.W. Jones — the skinny bones at the heart and considerable soul of the band with his original tunes and sweet guitar. Howlin’ Dan is the second song writer in the group, singing his heart out and laying down the fat bass. The Jones Brothers are covering some of his best original rockin’ blues hits and some new funky blue tunes never before heard.

The Nelson Rhythm and Blues Soulcase is a chance for unsung heroes of the local blues and music community to come together and deliver a set of fresh original songs on a stage that fits them all — in a fresh and exhilarating collaborative live music experience.

The plan is to see this as an ongoing project that will offer live from the stage recordings for the many local musicians the area has to offer.

All for 10$ or $7 for KCR Members. Tickets are available at the Hume Hotel, Kootenay Co-op Radio, and at the door.
