Blues for Red Door | Red Door Family Shelter

Blues for Red Door

Event Date: 
Sunday, November 8, 2015 - 6:30 pm

On Sunday, November 8th, the Lula Lounge opens its doors to Blues for the Red Door: A charity Blues Revue that benefits the Red Door Family Shelter.

We are all familiar with the stereotype is of an all-male back-up band supporting female singers who are expected to have a certain amount of sex appeal to “sell” the music.  “Blues for the Red Door,” is doing it the other way around, presenting a cabaret of 10 top male Blues singers performing in front of an all-woman band.  There will even be an appearance by a male burlesque performer to add some “cheek” to this amusing twist.

Among the performers are such luminary blues men as

  • Juno Award winner for Best Blues Artist Julian Fauth
  • Steven Ambrose, lead singer for the Lincolns
  • Musician & JazzFM air personality Danny Marks (Blues FM)
  • The Legendary Chuck Jackson, singer for the Downchild Blues Band
  • Blues Harp master & singer Mark “Bird” Stafford
  • Blues Shouter & songwriter Big Rude Jake
  • Juno nominee for Best Blues Artist, Johnny Max
  • Roots music master Alfie Smith
  • Mr Rick from Rick and the Biscuits
  • Sugar Brown
  • Sax Master & Maple Blues Award winner Pat Cary

The house band features:

  • Marg Stowe, “The Queen of Flange” on guitar and as Musical Director
  • Michelle Josef on Drums
  • Alison Young on Sax
