Event Information

 

THE LEGENDARY DOWNCHILD BLUES BAND "50TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR"

After 18 albums, countless awards and wowing sold out audiences around the globe, THE LEGENDARY DOWNCHILD BLUES BAND is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year with a brand new show featuring hits like "Flip, Flop & Fly" as well as fan favourites and hidden gems from throughout their illustrious career.

Downchild came to international prominence as the inspiration for Hollywood stars Dan Akroyd and the late John Belushi`s hit film, the "Blues Brothers".   In fact, two Downchild songs, "Shotgun Blues" and "(I Got Everything I Need)Almost" were even covered by the Blues Brothers 1978 multi platinum album "Briefcase Full of Blues".

The band is lead by founder, Donnie "Downchild" Walsh on guitar and harmonica, singer Chuck Jackson, who also plays harmonica, tenor sax man Pat Carey, Michael Fonfara (who was a member of the early rock supergroup Rhinoceros and Lou Reed`s band) plays keyboards, Gary Kendall on bass and drummer Mike Fitzpatrick.

With their signature jump blues style and infectious soulful sound, Juno Award winners Downchild deliver a live performance that is second to none, and this special anniversary show is one not to be missed.
