Canada’s best known and best loved blues outfit, the legendary Downchild Blues Band have not only made a major impact here at home but around the world with their sweet, infectious sound, alongside their contemporaries B.B. King, Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker. With such hits as “Flip Flop & Fly”, “I Got Everything I Need (Almost)” and fan favourites like “It’s Been So Long” and “Going Dancing”.
Downchild puts on a show that is second to none and sure to get your toes tapping and hips swinging. Perhaps best known as the inspiration for Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi’s hit film The Blues Brothers, Downchild in fact have two of their songs “I Got Everything I Need (Almost)” and “Shotgun Blues” on the multi-platinum selling movie soundtrack Briefcase Full Of Blues. It’s been over 40 years since leader and founder Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh formed the Juno Award winning group and with 16 albums and countless awards to their credit, including a Maple Blues Award for “Entertainers Of The Year”.
Downchild are sounding and performing better than ever. Don’t miss the one and only Downchild Blues Band for “Goodtimes Guaranteed” as they tour in support of their brand new album that is set for release this fall.
