About Suzie Vinnick...
* 10X Canadian Maple Blues Award Winner*
* 3X Juno Nominee*
* Finalist, 2013 International Blues Challenge - Solo/Duo Category*

A Saskatoon native transplanted to the Niagara Region of Ontario, Roots and Blues singer Suzie Vinnick is a 3X Juno Nominee, CFMA Award winner, and a 10-time winner of the Maple Blues Award for songwriting, female vocalist, acoustic act and more. Suzie has a voice you’ve heard a thousand times and one you’ll never forget. It soars, it growls, it whispers and it shouts from a deep, deep well of emotion. The pure joy she exudes when she picks up that guitar is so worth the show.

Suzie has toured nationally with Stuart McLean’s The Vinyl Café, the John McDermott Band, and she has performed for Canadian Peacekeepers in Bosnia and the Persian Gulf. She was also the voice of Tim Horton’s for 5 years.

Suzie just released her latest album, a full band roots and blues extravaganza entitled Shake The Love Around.

“Warm, rich and emotional, Vinnick’s gorgeous vocals ring with confidence…”– Ottawa Citizen

“Serving up a set where it shows she’s a long way from getting jaded and losing her mojo, this girl most likely to…has more chops than the meat department at the Costco warehouse. Blues, folk, rock? She’s got a toe in all those waters and handles them all with the ease of wrapping them around her little finger. A real blast of fresh air, this set hit’s the target every timeout. Killer stuff throughout.” – Midwest Record.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Geeks versus Nerds
May

7:00 PM19:00

Geeks versus Nerds

Geeks versus Nerds is here on Canada's West Coast and we've taken up the mantle of celebrating our local geek, gamer, and comic book nerd subcultures right here in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. Every month, we pit fan-favourite pop culture icons against each other in a battle royale of wit, hilarity, and memorable one-liners. Each two hour show features two debates: an Opener Debate - which usually pits two less-well-known or retro characters against each other, and a Headliner Debate - which usually features two behemoths of pop culture vying for glory. Each character is represented by a team of three (Team Geeks or Team Nerds) that argue for their candidate's right to hold the title. At the end of each debate, the audience determines the winner by round of applause, and to the winning team goes the "Chalice of Victory".

Int'l Blues Music Day Concert: David Gogo Band//Matt Hoyles

Doors: 6:30pm | Showtime: 7:30pm.
General Admission.
19 + Event.

Vancouver Blues Around Town cordially invites you to celebrate the "Blues" on Int'l Blues Music Day.

Join us as we come together "To celebrate, promote, and preserve the rich legacy, tradition and future of the great American art form and international language known as blues music."

Headlining will be 2017 Maple Blues Award Winner, David Gogo and his band. Opening for David, is local Vancouver Blues Musician Matt Hoyles.
--------------
About David Gogo.

With the release of his fifteenth album 17 Vultures, bluesman David Gogo continues his blues rock crusade by pushing himself forward, yet again. Not that looking back on his career is a bad thing.

He has performed on stage with the likes of BB King, Johnny Winter, Albert Collins, Bo Diddley, and Otis Rush. He has been chosen to open shows for ZZ Top, George Thorogood, The Tragically Hip, Little Feat, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, Robin Trower and Wishbone Ash. His songs are featured in films and television and have been covered by a variety of artists, most notably Buddy Guy.

David Gogo has six JUNO Award nominations, has been named Guitarist Of The Year three times at the Maple Blues Awards, was named Musician Of The Year at the West Coast Music Awards, won Blues Recording Of The Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.

Artist Website: http://www.davidgogo.com/
-----------------
About Matt Hoyles.

Gritty guitar, wailing harmonica, mad foot percussion and wickedly expressive vocals combine to create a unique rootsy sound that will get you stomping your feet and clapping your hands like there’s no tomorrow!

Hoyles is a compelling entertainer who leaves it all on stage! His musicianship as a guitarist is original, mesmerising and an unforgettable experience. Matt's debut album TIME was released in spring 2018 to a sold out crowd at Vancouver’s legendary Railway Club; and as Vancouver’s Permanent Rain Press states "Hoyles proves he can pack a lot into one song, let alone a whole album with Time, his passionate, gritty voice and unconventional mish-mash of blues and other elements making for a vibrant and soulful album”.

Steve Hill &amp; Special Guest Matt Hoyles

Steve Hill & Special Guest Matt Hoyles

Doors 6:30pm | Showtime 7:30pm
General Admission. 19+ Event.

Vancouver Blues Around Town Presents Steve Hill & Special Guest Matt Hoyles.
---------------------
“The one-man band style has made Steve Hill the top star in the Canadian blues scene right now,” says Bob Mersereau of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits. Anything goes. He is the true exponent of aone-man band. Steve performs standing up while singing and playing
guitar, his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and with a drum stick fused to the head of his trusty guitar, any other percussion within reach.
Steve’s an overnight sensation that’s 20 years in the making. He’s an ambitious and raucous force to be reckoned with on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene. Now, he’s ready to break out
internationally.

Following the success of his JUNO nominated Solo Recordings Volume 1, which also won “Album of The Year” at the InternationalBlues Challenge in 2013, and JUNO Award winner Solo Recordings
Volume 2, Steve Hill first released his brand new album Solo Recordings Volume 3 in Canada on March 4, 2016.

Now, a year later, the album will finally be released domestically in the UK on Friday 6th
October 2017. One Man Blues Rock Band features originals that are outright rockers (Damned, Dangerous, Rhythm All Over, The Ballad of Jonny Wabo, Still Got It Bad to more acoustic-based melodic tracks (Emily) and three re-imagined and rearranged covers (Voodoo Child). The live album shows an artist at the top of his game.

It comes to no surprise why the Montreal Gazette has referred to Steve Hill as, “the meanest guitar player in Canada.”

“I wanted to capture a live album that featured all the energy of my live shows,” says Steve. There are no overdubs on this live album… I play everything myself in real time. There are no tapes or loops. What you hear is what you get.”

In January 2015, Steve was awarded four coveted Maple Blues Awards including Electric Act of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, Recording/Producer of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. Solo Recordings Volume 2 won the 2015 JUNO Award for Blues Album of the Year. Throughout his career, Steve has shared the stage with many of his musical heroes including Ray Charles, BB King, ZZ Top, Jimmie Vaughan, Hubert Sumlin, Jeff Beck and many others. Over the course of nine albums he’s explored everything from hard rock, country, and stoner rock to folk music while always incorporating the essence of his first love, the blues.

Steve’s reputation as an exciting performer has provided him the opportunity to showcase his talents at some of Canada’s biggest music festivals including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest, Jazz Winnipeg Festival, Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, Kitchener Blues Festival and more. Steve Hill is clearly in his element as a solo artist and one-man band, inviting listeners into a world of musical madness in the form of blues and rock ‘n’ roll.

Clockwork proudly presents the 'Lucid Illusions' Album Release Party on Saturday, April 6th @ the ANZA Club. This project is our Boi Kavi's 2nd - a Double EP - and to celebrate he's bringing along some of Vancity's dopest musical acts:

Bo Henrik (Henrik Jacobsson): This artist is neo-soul, hip hop and dirty rhythms all wrapped into one, not to mention a wizard on the guitar. A truly detail oriented performer, Bo Henrik writes, produces, and choreographs all his moves. IG: @bohenrikmusic

Radina Vee: Hip hop to her core, Radina rocks mics with swag, substance, and a gripping voice that can shred verses and melodic hooks with equal parts vigor and style. IG: @radinavee

5am Zeri: A lyricist's lyricist, 5AM delivers pure energy every time he hits a stage. His vocal delivery cuts through the speakers with unmistakably raw and authentic emotion. Follow 5AM on IG: @5amzeri

Panax: Panax has been steadily turning heads in the Vancouver hip hop scene for the past few years. An intensely clever and intricate writer, Panax has dropped one of the dopest underground albums in the entire scene of late. Listen to "Sheer" here: https://soundcloud.com/panaxish/sets/sheer

This event will be hosted by the one and only SoS aka Sauce and will feature Jordan aka DJ J-Hump on the decks!
