The Legendary Downchild Blues Band – 50th Anniversary Tour

Presented by Crystal Head Vodka

Saturday September 26th at 7:30pm

The Sault Community Theatre Centre

 

THE LEGENDARY DOWNCHILD BLUES BAND are celebrating their 50th Anniversary after 18 albums, countless awards, and performing for sold-out audiences around the world with a brand‐new show featuring hits like “Flip, Flop & Fly,” as well as fan favourites and hidden gems from throughout their illustrious career.

Downchild came to international prominence as the inspiration for Hollywood stars Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi’s hit film, The Blues Brothers. In fact, two Downchild songs, “Shotgun Blues” and “(I Got Everything I Need) Almost” were even covered on The Blues Brothers’ 1978 multi‐platinum album Briefcase Full of Blues.

The band is lead by founder, Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh on guitar and harmonica, singer Chuck Jackson, who also plays harmonica, tenor sax man Pat Carey, Michael Fonfara (who was a member of the early American rock supergroup Rhinoceros and Lou Reed’s band) plays keyboards, Gary Kendall on bass and drummer Mike Fitzpatrick.

With their signature jump‐blues style and infectious, soulful sound, Juno Award winners Downchild deliver a live performance that is second to none, and this special anniversary show is one ‐ not to be missed!

Tickets available March 6th 10 AM at the Sault Community Box Office in the Station Mall or online above. 

Tickets: $53 + Applicable Tax/Fees
