Get Your Jump On with the Legendary Downchild Blues Band
Hip swaying jump-style blues by the Legendary Downchild Blues Band is about to cruise into Calgary for a one-off extravaganza. Tickets to the multi-award winning, proudly Canadian bluesmen are on sale now. With legions of smitten fans queuing up to toe tap and soft shoe shuffle to the tunes of Can You Hear the Music, Flip, Flop & Fly and I Need A Hat, you’d be well advised to reserve your seat at the Grey Eagle Event Centre right away!
Award Winning Blues & High Limit Casino Games – a Perfect Night Out!
Blues Museum Hall of Fame inductee, Donnie Walsh – aka Mr Downchild – has been entertaining Canadians for well over four decades. The harp and guitar virtuoso and primary songwriter has partnered with dozens of musicians over the years to create the signature sounds of the Downchild Blues Band. Renowned for his deft slide guitar work and honoured by the Toronto Blues Society for a distinguished career in the up tempo, jazz infused music genre, Walsh is currently partnered by a quintet of skilful superstars.
Chuck Jackson, Pat Carey, Mike Fitzpatrick, Gary Kendall and Michael Fonfara are all respected musicians in their own right. In fact, they have all been acknowledged as the Maple Blues Award Best Player of the Year in their respective roles at least once. Together, the troupe simply sizzles as is evident from the myriad awards doled out to the band – two Junos, four Maple Blues and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Great Canadian Blues award!
Once you’ve been bedazzled by the slick sounds of home-grown blues, you can saunter across to the Grey Eagle Casino to enjoy high roller casino games in the understated elegance of the High Limit Gaming Room. You’ll find vintage classics, such as blackjack, baccarat and European roulette, together with high limit slot machines, tile pai gow and EZ-baccarat with dragons and panda!
