Bob Margolin Band

Well known as a member of the Muddy Waters Band from 1973 to 1983, Margolin tours worldwide today as a band leader and guest with both legendary and contemporary musicians. One of those high-profile gigs was a tribute to Muddy at the 1984 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival where Pinetop Perkins and Margolin added on to The Fabulous Thunderbirds, with Etta James singing, and Taj Mahal and James Cotton opening. The Bob Margolin Band opened shows for Stevie Vaughan, George Thorogood, Johnny Winter, and The T-Birds.

The Perpetrators

The Perpetrators front-man and founding member Jay Nowicki is rated one of Canada’s tastiest guitar players. Together with the “meat-and-mashed-potatoes” rhythm section of Emmet VanEtten & John Scoles (or sometimes founding member Ryan Menard) they deliver a tight, raw and intense blues experience that is sure to make you get up and shake it.

The Perpetrators’ ability to stay grounded to their Winnipeg roots, coupled with the raw energy and extreme talent makes this one of the best groups to come out of Canada. Once a not-so-well-kept-secret in their hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada – where they acted as house band for such visiting blues legends as Hubert Sumlin, Louisiana Red, Paul “Wine” Jones and others – The Perpetrators kicked things up a notch in 2006. A European Tour capped off a Juno Nomination and a win at the Western Canadian Music Awards. That decade, The Perps released two more albums, garnering various award nominations.
