Blues Bash Party - Dark Horse Productions

On Friday the 9th of February, EBS (Edmonton Blues Society) provided some volunteer assistance to Dark Horse Productions to host a twofer, with Jimmy and The Sleepers for the first act, with the Rault Brothers following, at Bonnie Doon Hall. It was a very cold night - lots of people were running out to start their cars. But the show quickly sold out.

The Sleepers are working on their second CD. And they had T-Shirts with the logo from their first CD on sale at the door. EBS members love to dance to the blues and Jimmy and his boys quickly got the dance hall jumping with some familiar and some new tunes. The band was hot and hopping. Crawdad was pouring sweat and thrashing back and forth. The crowd was matching him move for move

After a short break Lionel and Ron Rault, with regular Bill Hobson and Stuart MacDougall took up the charge. Again the dance floor filled quickly, it was impossible to move. The Rault brothers have been playing the blues together for a few years and they know how to please. The night started at 9:00 pm, and when I left at 11:30 they were still going strong.

It was a fantastic show, a friendly blues loving audience, and a great crew of volunteers.
