February 19, 2010 - JEROME GODBOO BAND

Jerome Godboo and his excellent band came, performed and conquered The Cove Inn last Friday for another memorable Blues On The Rideau night. This was Jerome’s first visit here and he didn’t disappoint blowing some blazing harmonica (along with other instruments including his kid’s Boomwhackers percussion tubes!), strong vocals, great original songs (many off his upcoming new CD being released this spring ) and generally danced, gyrated and entertained the audience all night long. Standing ovation and double encore demanded by the crowd at night’s end.

Al Cross (formerly with Big Sugar) laid down some great drumming (we luck in by having him return in April with Harmonica Shah/Jack de Keyser and in June with Danny Marks) along with the incomparable Alec Fraser on bass (2009 Maple Blues Award winner) and Shawn Kellerman playing some insanely awesome guitar to compliment Jerome.

Wham, bam, slaw! Super night.
