Where: Montreal, QC
If you’re inclined to think blues acts all sound a little too much alike, Montreal’s Blues Z are here to dispel such misguided notions. For more than two decades now, the group has brought an energy and enthusiasm to this time-honoured genre that places them in the upper ranks of Canadian blues acts. Bolstered by an impeccably tight rhythm section and complemented by stellar guitar work, the band’s original material is as strong as the tasteful B.B. King and ZZ Top covers found in their repertoire. Rest assured that Blues Z don’t just sound good on paper; they are the real deal.
