It is such a pleasure to honour our Vancouver Island Blues Musicians for Summertime Blues 2018. Showcasing our talent has long been an idea whose time has come. We have world class entertainers who are in demand all over the world. Blue Moon Marquee has just returned from Italy entertaining and is currently touring New York. Looking forward to their presence at Summertime Blues. So yes! International stars. Home town favourite is David Gogo and favored in Europe as well. David Vest originally from Huntsville, Alabama now calls Victoria his home. David is an authentic southern bred boogie-woogie piano player, blues shouter and world-class entertainer. Layla Zoe has performed in Europe for many years and is returning to her home town for Summertime Blues. Welcome back Layla. Come and enjoy the incredible talent that Vancouver Island has to offer. This is a fantastic opportunity to broaden your musical horizons and support our Blues Community. A surprise guest appearance will be the Paul DesLauriers Band. Tickets are available now at https://nanaimoblues.tickit.ca/
Our venue for Summertime Blues continues to be Maffeo Sutton Park located right on the waterfront in downtown Nanaimo. We are returning to the identical format as last year. Enhanced stage, enhanced sound and enhance lighting. This makes for an amazing festival experience. See you there!
