Ocotober 16, 2010 - MIKE GOUDREAU BAND

A somewhat belated follow up to say what a GREAT evening of Blues the MIKE GOUDREAU BAND gave us OCTOBER 16 at the first Dinner & Show night of the season for BLUES ON THE RIDEAU @ THE COVE INN, Westport. This man – and his smooth, talented band from Quebec’s Eastern Townships - just keeps getting better. Mike’s strong vocals & excellent guitar supported by solid bass and vocals from Gerry Goodsell, tight drumming from Alain Blanchet, great licks from young Kavan Jalbert on sax and maestro keyboards from Sylvain Rancy played the Blues in that boppin’, swingin’ style they have become so famous for. They had the dance floor packed all night and the audience demanding that they keep playing long past regular closing time. An added treat came when the talented musical Innkeeper twins Seamus & Jeff Cowan (drums and bass) got up on stage with them for a couple of numbers. The night was not quite sold out but almost - a great start to the new BOTR @ The Cove season
