In other news, I attended Horse Thief Hide Out on the weekend. What a BLAST!

This event has sure grown up since I last attended it. So has the quality of the music!  
My favourite band of the night was Boogie Patrol from Edmonton. 

This band's roots are in the Blues, but, Funk, R & B and Boogie Woogie round out their repertoire.

The lead singer - Rott'n Dan sings like a black man and dances like a white guy - seriously, if you watch this wiry, high energy man on stage you find it very hard to absorb that this great big voice comes from this diminutive man.  

His voice reminds you of smoky speakeasies, big cigars and brandy...

The guitar picking, back beats, keyboard and drum work are so tight - these guys are so on that all your body wants to do is move - you just can not help yourself! 

You KNOW these guys live, breath and eat the music they play - their passion and love for what they do shows in every song that they hammer out.

One of my favourite songs on their new album  (I Try and I Try and I Don't Know What To Do... The Plan Was Set Some Time Ago, and We Must Follow Through) - the Blues Album of the Year, is "Bathe with Your Woman" friend Dirty Girl has a video series called Dirty Girl's Tub Talk and the minute I heard this song I thought of her and how this song should be her theme song!

I can not say enough good things about this band, from their energy to their music and lyrics this band EXCITES ME!!!!

So what words can I use to explain this band's talent and showmanship?

Soulful, electrifying, incredible - NO -  PHENOMENAL,  captivating, sizzling, energizing, exciting....

If you love the harmonica - then this IS THE BAND you want to listen to.  

If you love Blues - this is the Blues Band of the Year!!!! 

If you appreciate really good music, music that gives the soul wings - then this is THE BAND you have to check out!

Their name is Boogie Patrol - and I personally guarantee you that your body and soul will love them if you enjoy the blues!
