We all get the blues sometimes, but others get it more than others, and on purpose. That’s because getting the blues can be so darn fun – at least it is when Chuck and Johnny hit the stage Oct. 22 at 19 on the Park for their Beginners Guide to the Blues presentation.
The Chuck and Johnny in question here know what their talking about. Chuck Jackson is best known as the lead singer for Canadian blues legends the Downchild Blues Band. That Juno award-winning band is only a part of Jackson’s impressive resume that boasts individual Juno nods and multiple Maple Blues Awards and nominations.
Johnny is Johnny Max, a two-time Juno nominee and a multiple blues award winner. He also hosts his own weekly online radio show. His Johnny Max Blues Band, and various incarnations are a staple in GTA pubs but for one night these two best buds are going to give you the benefit of their collective blues knowledge and promise you’ll be in for a pretty fun evening. They promise, “A few jokes, some bad dance moves, and all fantastic music.”
If you’re going to deliver the first two, you had better deliver the last part too, and they will for what is a highly anticipated, and energetic night out at 19 on the Park.
