Southern Avenue at the KBD!

The Canada South Blues Society Chatham Kent is extremely proud to announce our Christmas Show, Saturday, December 8th, at the KBD Hall,  featuring Southern Avenue. Southern Avenue is an up and coming band that is taking the world by storm. We have been anticipating this show for some time and we think it may be the show of the year. 

“Southern Avenue’s debut album is the beginning of a legacy…What we have here, is a young, yet seasoned group of artists, who took everything Memphis has to give, rubbed their own magic on it, and are delivering it to us in a single serving. It’s not blues, soul, Gospel or R&B. It’s all of the above, blended in such a way to create its very own category.” 
American Blues Scene
“This debut album from Southern Avenue is the tastiest thing out of Memphis since Gus’s Fried Chicken went national. Sounding somewhat like the Staple Singers doing an album of bluesy southern rock, this band will be huge, mark my words…Fans of acts ranging from Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings to the Black Keys will find a lot to like here…”
Ink 19
“Tierinii Jackson’s voice is stadium quality. There’s much more BeyoncĂ© force than Memphis Minnie grit there, and it’s a blessing. To me, that’s what makes this band worth talking about. In addition to the ridiculous amount of talent you get by tallying everyone in this band, Southern Avenue is youthful and vibrant. They’re out here giving life to a genre too long dominated by people obsessed with emulating the past. And that’s a good deed done for blues fans everywhere.”
I Love Memphis

When it comes to an ability to belt out blues that bring your bones to a simmer, vocalist and bassist supreme Danielle Nicole is cut from the same soulful cloth as Etta James, Koko Taylor and Shemekia Copeland. In other words she is the vocal personification of everything blues fans love about the genre. She can be soft and sweet. She can be nurturing and wise. But mostly she can be wild.. An acclaimed singer and bassist who has won the admiration of critics, fans and fellow musicians alike, Danielle angelic, if rough-edged voice is destined to soar into the hearts of unsuspecting blues fans.
Danielle's distinctive, inventive bass work—which resulted in her becoming the first woman to win the Blues Foundation's 2014 Blues Music Award for Best Instrumentalist, Bass—is the product of years of intensive roadwork.

Duke Robillard Live

The CSBS (Chatham-Kent) is proud to announce our next show, Friday December 2nd, featuring a true Blues Legend, Duke Robillard.
What do Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Jay McShann, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Hammond, the late Jimmy Witherspoon, Dr. John, Maria Muldaur, Roomful of Blues, and the Canadian band The Rockin’ Highliners all have in common?
Answer: Duke Robillard
Guitarist. Bandleader. Songwriter. Singer. Producer. Session musician. And a one-man cheering section for the blues, in all its forms and permutations. And every one of those names has shared recording studio space or stage time with a man who is a legend in the blues community.
The Blues Music Awards (formerly W.C.Handy Awards) have named Duke Robillard "Best Blues Guitarist" four years out of five (2000,2001,2003,2004) making him the second most honored guitarist for that award! He was also nominated in that category in 2005, 2007 and again in 2008.
I suggest you get your tickets early for this show. Our December shows are always a sell out, and the demand for Duke Robillard tickets is already strong. You really don't want to miss this show!!! Tickets are available at Aug's Video in Blenheim and Chatham, at the KBD Club in Chatham, and at Kakoon Spa in Ridgetown. Or call Bob at 519-676-8977 to reserve tickets and tables. Be sure to check Duke out on youtube and
