Kenny Wayne

Kenny Wayne is a throwback to the golden age of classic rhythm and blues. Born in Spokane and raised in New Orleans, his powerful music recalls the era when piano players like Fats Domino and Amos Milburn and Bill Doggett worked the chitlin’ circuit on the “strolls” in dozens of American cities. As a one-man cheering section for the days when blues and small jazz bands met the roots of rock and roll, Wayne is unapologetic about the music he plays.

Kenny has toured the world playing his music. He is a Juno award winning and multi-nominated artist who hits all the right notes on his latest album, Rollin’ with the Blues Boss, as he covers boogie, funk and New Orleans flavored rhythm and blues.

“Wayne is a boogie-woogie master, and his vocals are sly, assured and just plain likeable; there’s an easygoing elegance to his delivery that matches his stylish presentation perfectly.”
John Taylor – blogcritic.doc

Sherman Doucette

Born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Sherman’s natural ear for music began developing at an early age. He left home at fifteen with a harmonica and a twenty dollar bill in his pocket, bound for Vancouver. It was there that he discovered the Chicago blues style on an album featuring Muddy Waters, Junior Wells and James Cotton. By seventeen, he had developed a style of playing greatly influenced by the late great Paul Butterfield. Sherman has had the great privilege of sharing the stage with legendary players such as John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, Sony Land Slim, Pinetop Perkins, Jim Byrnes and Long John Baldry.

In 1980, three years after surviving a massive lumber mill explosion, he formed his own blues band, “Incognito”. The band was at the forefront of the Vancouver music scene. They released three independent CD recordings toured extensively. Today with his great new blues band, TANKful of Blues, is captured live and on CDs. Doucette continues to perform with all the passion and conviction few can deliver.
