Downtown Blues Band

Artist Description

Blues, R&B

Fredericton, NB

Formed in 1987, at a time when canned tunes had depressed the local live music scene, and when “downtown had the blues,” the Downtown Blues Band has evolved from a casual group of like-minded blues enthusiasts to Fredericton’s favourite party band. Described by The Telegraph Journal as “a bunch of regular Frederictonians who can cook with the best of them, sending crowds home with big smiles on their faces and sore feet from too much dancing,” it’s no wonder that they are the only band to play every single Harvest in its twenty seven years (not to mention founding DTBB member Rick Hutchins also founded the Festival in 1991). They’ve shared the stage with Blues Brother Dan Aykroyd, and helped raise funds to dig wells, buy food for the hungry and instruments for students. As a group of seasoned professional performers, the Downtown Blues Band will bring their infectiously fun show back to Harvest, as is tradition!
