The Blus Brothers – Friday 6:30-8:00 PM

The Blus Bros. are a Great White North tribute to the original Blues Brothers, founded in 1978 by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, on Saturday Night Live, and later in the 1980 musical comedy film of the same name. Blood brothers Stan and Bob Hammond hail from Ontario, Canada, but their hearts are steeped in the tradition of old Chicago, and the tale of Jake and Elwood Blues.

Stan (aka Jake), touted as a ringer for Belushi all of his life, was the inspiration for these boys to set out on their own ‘mission from God’, and to spread the joy via their own enthusiasm for rhythm and blues.

Bob’s (aka Elwood) passion for the genre was ignited after taking vocal lessons and studing harmonica. This resulted in numerous guest performances, as well as fronting his own band, “Big” Bob Hammond & The Mississauga Delta Blues Band, performing traditional works by the greats, such as Jimmy Reed, Howlin Wolf, Big Joe Turner, and T-Bone Walker to name a few.

These two natural brothers travel the countryside in their 74 Dodge Monaco 440, 4 barrel, with cop tires, cop brakes, cop suspension, and it ‘runs good on regular’ gas.

We Ain’t Petty – Friday 8:00-10:00 PM

Bootleg Creedence – Saturday 1:30-3:30 PM

CCR Tribute Band

The four seasoned, well-respected musicians in Bootleg Creedence have been making music in various combinations and styles, for over twenty-five years. It is only fitting that they should come together as Bootleg Creedence, and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members’ formative years.

Mike Nyman (lead vocals/guitar)
Fred Ruegg (lead guitar, vocals)
Jeff Mayne (drums/vocals)
Kevin Dandeno (bass/vocals)

Bootleg Creedence takes its audience on a rockin’ ride down to the bayou. Authentic-sounding, Bootleg Creedence leaves no stone unturned keeping true to the sound of Creedence Clearwater Revival and John Fogerty.

Rayzor’s Edge – Saturday 8:00-10:00 PM

Rayzor’s Edge started out around a campfire somewhere in North Ontario. Ray and Jake have been playing in the Warkworth area for the last few years. They are inspired by music, yet face the challenges of raising a family and paying the bills. They love to play classic rock, rockin’ country and Ray’s originals as well.

At the age of 14, Ray decided he would like to play guitar, so he picked up his brother’s and taught himself “Heart of Gold” by Neil Young. It took him six weeks and he has been playing ever since. In his early twenties, Ray made a living playing the bars in Toronto, but left that life for his family. Ray writes and has a large collection of his own material.

Jake has been singing in his car since he was 16, but only in recent years has decided to take it to the stage. Jake has taken to karaoke at the local legion and continues on with Rayzor’s Edge.

The current lineup of Rayzor’s Edge is:
Q – Drums
Stoner – Bass
Mrs Q – Keyboards and vocals
Rayzor – Rhythm guitar, vocals and harmonica
Dr Don – Lead guitar
Wakko – Lead vocals
