Selena performs with Mad Dogs & Englishmen - Peters Players

30 Mar 2015

 

2 Dates - April 23rd & April 24th 2015

 

The Crowd favourite at the 2013 Kitchener Blues Festival, this show with 14 of the country’s top Blues and Roots music artists is a powerhouse Soul and Gospel/rock show guaranteed to bring the house down.

 

 

Juno Award winning producer Lance Anderson (who brought The Last Waltz to Peter’s) has brought together another wonderful  roster of BLUES ALL STARS. Singers Chuck Jackson (The Downchild Blues Band), Danny Brooks and Matt Weidinger (Lumberjunk), Cheryl Lescomb and gospel sensations Quisha Wint and Selena Evangeline to recreate the magic of the award winning 1970’s tour, album and movie of the same name.

 

Backed by a nine piece band which includes two drummers (Michael Sloski,  The Cameo Blues Band) Shamakah Ali (The Barkays)) and percussionist (Art Avalos,, Manteca), horns (David Dunlop (Boss Brass), Simon Wallis. (Lighthouse), Hammond organ (Matt W), and piano (Anderson)  and guitar (Terry Blersh, Danny Brooks) and bass (Howard Ayee, Rough Trade), the rhythm this group creates is a freight train which will pick you up and drop you down at the Fillmore East in NYC. They come together to celebrate the music that Joe Cocker and Leon Russell threw together to fulfill a tour that almost didn’t happen. Cocker’s English band was not allowed into America, so at he last minute he asked Russell to assemble a group of musical all stars for a tour. Joe asked the right man, as Leon was one of the most connected studio musicians and songwriters in L.A. Part of the ‘Wrecking Crew’. Our Mad Dogs show is in that same all star spirit. During this two hour show you will hear their wonderful arrangements from the ‘Hall of Fame’ hit record including: The Letter, With a Little Help From My Friends, Feeling Alright, Space Captain, Honky Tonk Woman,  Cry Me a River, Drown in My Own Tears. And Leon’s other wonderful arrangements of Beatles tunes like: She Came In Through the Bathroom Window, Something, Let It Be, And Leon Russell originals like: Superstar, Give Peace a Chance and Dixie Lullaby - See more at: http://www.petersplayers.com/mad-dogs-and-englishmen-the-music-of-joe-cocker-and-leon-russell/#sthash.xi6oV9SC.dpufThe Crowd favourite at the 2013 Kitchener Blues Festival, this show with 14 of the country’s top Blues and Roots music artists is a powerhouse Soul and Gospel/rock show guaranteed to bring the house down.
