Thirty Years On
Willie Macalder and Harpdog Brown at Bozzini's Sept 26
Staff/released by Mano, Bozzini's Rest./Harpdog Brown photo submitted
n the 70s, the Willie Macalder Blues Band played everywhere. I saw them in places like the Commodore Ballroom and the Spinning Wheel in Gastown. Later on, their name was changed to the more familiar Powder Blues Band.
Tom and Jack Lavin helped propel the band to international fame with songs like "Thirsty Ears".
After 30 years, Macaulder is still at it. If you love blues and incredible keyboard and piano playing, you won't want to miss this show at Bozzini's.
Playing with Macaulder is Harpdog Brown.
Released by Mano, Bozzini's Restaurant
No two Harpdog Brown shows at Bozzini’s are ever the same and for his 4th visit the Dog is bringing along the incomparable, the legendary, Willie MacCalder, a founding member of the Powder Blues Band!
His vocal style has been
compared to a smoother and bluesier Jerry Lee Lewis.
With six CDs under his belt, working with two different duos as well as with his band The Bloodhounds, the Dog puts his individual stamp on everything he does. He is pure blues at its best; absolutely the genuine item. The real deal.

When: September 26 - Doors 6 p.m. Show 7 p.m.
