The Downchild Blues Band - 40th Anniversary Concert

Please welcome aboard some more blues from Canada by The rippin' Frog!

The Downchild Blues Band, Dan Aykroyd, James Cotton, Colin Linden, Jonas, Wayne Jackson, Colin James

It’s time for Canada to celebrate the legends of Blues! And when one thinks of blues music in Canada, the first name that springs to mind is DOWNCHILD. It’s been 40 years since Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh and his late brother, Hock formed the renowned group that would be the inspiration behind the world famous Blues Brothers and DOWNCHILD celebrated their anniversary in style, with some very special friends – including blues brother and movie icon DAN AYKROYD. Opening on the tour is COLIN LINDEN who will be performing both solo and then with the band. JAMES COTTON and WAYNE JACKSON OF THE MEMPHIS HORNS as well as JONAS, BOB WALSH and NANETTE WORKMAN who all make guest appearances along the way.

Downchild band members include some of the most well respected musicians in the country, who have performed together for over 15 years. This includes silky smooth singer and harmonica player CHUCK JACKSON, tenor sax player PAT CAREY, MIKE FITZPATRICK on drums, rhythm captain GARY KENDALL on bass, and former American super-group rocker MICHAEL FONFARA (of Rhinoceros fame) on keyboards.
