MUSICIAN'S LIST TOPS 430 NAMES

Music. I have a career, but this is my passion, my escape, my solace, my mistress. I can think of no other thing that gives me more fulfillment than to play an instrument. I have had the distinct pleasure and privilege of playing music with some of the best players anywhere, as well as a few clunkers! But it matters not as long as everyone has fun. The list of names is long, but thanks to all for being there while I indulge in it. If your name isn't in the list of 430-plus musicians (What an Orchestra....!) below, it's 'cause I plumb forgot it...and besides, there is nothing more embarrassing than not knowing the names of some great players, so email me if I forgot you...or apply public humiliation in the . Those players with websites are underlined with links...If your name is below and you have a website, let me know.  And yes there are two Tim Williams-es there.

   After Ian. What can I say. One of my favorite musical endeavors. Classic rock covers, and not just any songs.


KING EDDY EPITAPH


 GUY CHAPUT a.k.a. McKINLEY MATTERS

Guy's album "Awakenings" takes a different approach to the Blues.  All original compositions with some interesting twists. See a video featuring a tune from his live album 'Live at the Ironwood', a rainsoaked version of "57 Chevy". Guy is a kick-ass live performer.
 


 JIM BAXTER

Jim Baxter & Sidewinder.  For four years Jim ran one of the better jams in Calgary at Station 52.  Visit his site for more on his trio Sidewinder.  You might find my ugly mug in there somewhere.


Groove Kitch'n

Clearly an entertaining endeavor, visit their site for a precise plot of their stage layout...dang, they might even fit in my basement if the dang thing ever gets finished.


Bill Dowey's Blues at 9th & 4th website

 Bill Dowey hosted the famous (and now defunct) King Eddy Saturday Jam Session. His brand of basic blues, played on slide guitar and keyboards, remains one of the finest examples of the genre to be heard.  Now Bill and his band the Blues Devils can be seen hosting a Saturday Afternoon and Sunday Evening jam at Kit's on 16th pub.


The Engagement

Ken Dalla Vicenza's Calgary Music Scene page

 Ken is a Bass player with a penchant for musical antics...as well as a somewhat prolific web junkie.


Amos Garrett's Homepage: unique guitar style
Remember "Midnight at the Oasis"? Amos is an unsung hero of the guitar, with a unique string-bending style. That's Amos on the right, with yours truly twiddling the mandolin.

Fretworks Musical Instrument Repair

 

 Fretworks offers excellent and personalized repair and service for your fretted instrument...and likely your unfretted one, too. Miles Jones brought my ailing and no longer precise Fender Precision Bass back from the brink...and I stopped fretting...thanks again, Mr. Jones.


Dogskin Suit Blues Band

 

 A self-promoting blues band from Kelowna, BC, with CD's and MP3 links. Can be seen about Calgary every so often.


Alien


 

 

 Tim Williams

 

 

Some of the finest original blues around. He and his band the Electrofires are always a great live show.  Tim hosts an acoustic open mic at the Auburn on Monday night.


Sherman "Tank" Doucette

Sherman is an enduring representative of the Harmonica Fraternity.  Like all experienced blues players, best heard live!
 

Playground Zone

Local Calgary classic rock cover band.  As the name implies, they turn the venue into a place where the the speed limit should be 30 km/h, only that doesn't happen.  It gets pretty racy by times.

JAM SESSIONS IN THE CALGARY AREA

These are the ones I usually attend when away from the patch. There are others as well, but I can't remember.

 


THE BORDER CROSSING. Sunday Evening 5 PM until they're done around 9PM, With Randy Shepard and Friends. Country, but all styles welcome.


THE LIGHTHOUSE PUB. Hosted by Jim Baxter and a different guest each week. Acoustic open mic. 8:30PM-13:30AM. Routinely a wacky time.


THE BLUES CAN. Sunday Afternoon at 3PM, the Most Reverend Percival P. Phenowsky, AKA Bill Dowey, hosts his Sunday Blues Sermon.


BIG AL'S PUB & GRILL. Thurdsay night, 8PM, Bobby Gosse & Friends. My country fix for years. Do it again, Saturday afternoon at 4PM.
