Ghost Town Blues Band
March 10, 2018
Coming from Memphis, renowned as a true soul music city, the Ghost Town Blues Band make a tribute to his hometown. With its passionate brass, funky New Orleans-inspired groove, soft harmonies and some unusual instruments, the GTBB creates a unique sound signature.
With a three-stringed cigar-box guitar and a hip-hop trombonist in the band, it's no surprise that Living Blues magazine proclaimed it "21st-century blues at its best."

Their newest album Brothers in this World was nominated for a JUNO Award for Best Album in Canada!
A musical family whose name is closely linked to Canada's musical and social history, Blackburn is composed of four talented brothers. The family’s ancestors played a role in the underground railroad, which allowed slaves to be transported North.
The latest family history includes a father who has distinguished himself as an unavoidable of the Toronto R & B scene. It was therefore natural to form a group that would celebrate and perpetuate the family tradition. Their albums and performances are a mix of soul, R & B, funk and, of course, blues.
Mo Blues, an artist from the Mauricie area, will open the night for Blackburn.
Tickets for the Ghost Town Blues Band and the Blackburn shows are priced at $26.09 (plus tax) and will go on sale this Saturday, January 27, 2018, from 11 am. These will be available online at www.amphitheatrecogeco.com, at the J. Antonio Thompson box office and at 819-380-9797 or 1-866-416-9797.
