Bill Johnson Blues Band
JUNO Nominee, Maple Blues Nominee (4X), and well respected bluesman BILL JOHNSON brings his quartet to The Copper Owl in Victoria. Listening to Bill play and sing the blues is like taking a master class in how its done.

A review from Goldmine Magazine on Bill's latest album:

"Canadian Bill Johnson has a great voice. Its what holds his self-released fourth album Cold Outside togetherthat, and his compositional prowess. The dude knows how to string some sentences into a cohesive whole, make em rhyme, and have em come out profound. To hear him sing his 11 originals while playing guitar and leading his keyboards/bass/drums band is to feel what hes feeling. His is a communicable enthusiasm, be it the Nine Dollar Bill hes trying to pass or what Makes A Fella Nervous totin around his Angry Guitar with My Natural Ability, Free From My Trouble.Highlights all, Johnson rolls with a savvy flair.

Opening the night, from Vancouver, is THE JOHN PIPPUS BAND. SoundProof Magazine has declared him,"a folk/roots gem"; The Vancouver Province says he's:"a refined tunesmith with serious pop hooks". Earshot Magazine says:"He has a gift for making us believe that he's been down the road and around the block, and is still kickin' it.The Vancouver Sun says:He lives and breathes his musical muse.John tours regularly in The Netherlands, Ontario, and around BC. He has released four albums, and has just released a 5-song EP, Weapons Of Emotion

The John Pippus Band includes: John Pippus (guitar, vocals, harmonica), Brice Tabish (guitar, vocals), Peg Wilson (bass, vocals) and Wes Skakun (drums).
