Boogie Patrol shows off what is so great about the blues — it is meant to take your troubles off your mind and your mind off your troubles with an intensely sweaty and energetic set of blues and soul.
Boogie Patrol is a blues, funk and soul band from Edmonton, which is playing May 20 at the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland.
Sean (Keys) Grieve on the keyboards brings a whole new level of energy to the band with talent as mad as his solos. Sean is from the Comox Valley and returns home on this West Coast tour.
On guitar is Yuji Ihara, who hails from Osaka, Japan but has been a long-standing professional blues player in Alberta. On bass is Nigel (The Duke) Gale, who has played with a wide range of styles and genres which provided him with the talent to adapt to Boogie Patrol’s spontaneous live show.
At the forefront is a young prodigy entertainer with crazy skills on the harp, “Rotten” Dan.
After creating a serious buzz on the lips of Edmontonians in the know, these diverse musicians entered the studio to record their debut album Groove On or Bug Out.
These boys stay true to their name and take letting loose to a whole new level.
There’s a $10 cover charge at the Wave for this show. Doors at 9:30 p.m.
