New Downchild Blues Band CD: Can You Hear the Music

Can You Hear the Music, the latest album (via True North Records) from Canadian legends, Downchild Blues Band is further proof of why this band is one of the premier Blues institutions in the world.

The current veteran lineup includes a number of talented area musicians.  There's Brantford's own vocal and harmonica dynamo Chuck Jackson,  Niagara keyboard master Michael Fonfara and bassman Gary Kendall who also lends his considerable skills to St. Catharines' Mighty Duck Blues Band.  Along with founding member Donnie Walsh (guitar, harmonica), Pat Carey (sax, horns), Peter Jeffrey (trumpet) and Mike Fitzpatrick (drums) the band has some of the most accomplished people in the Blues business.

They don't sit on their laurels either.  Weaving in and out of gospel, swing, jive, rockin' blues, R&B, soul and much more, the gang don't just rehash their old sounds.    Downchild is as vibrant in the Blues world as ever.

This incredible CD can be purchased at many music stores, online shops or through True North Records, it can also be downloaded through iTunes and eMusic.
