Chilliwack might seem like a long way from Chicago, but with a little slide guitar and some soulful crooning, Nigel Mack & the Blues Attack promise to transport the audience to the heart of blues country.

And with a show scheduled for the Bozzini’s stage this Friday, Mack is set to bring a taste of the blues explosion to a Chilliwack crowd.

Mack says blues hit the western Canadian scene hard in the ‘80s, which helped push the band forward to new heights and their eventual relocation to Chicago.

“Blues legends that we had only heard on records, we were suddenly hanging out and jamming with,” Mack says.

And while the band might now call another country home, Canada isn’t the kind of place you just give up cold turkey—meaning Fraser Valley audiences will see at least a little of the band every once in a while as they embark on Canadian tours.

With tickets for the Aug. 8 show set at $14, it’s perfect to pair with dinner or dessert. Call to reserve tickets from Bozzini’s at 604-792-0744.
