to close out 10th BOTR season

One of the best Blues harp players and most dynamic performers in the country - and a damn fine singer/songwriter too - DAVID ROTUNDO and his excellent band closed out the 10th annual BLUES ON THE RIDEAU at THE COVE INN, Westport Series with a BANG this past weekend. It was David's 7th consecutive annual visit to BOTR - the most of any act to play the Series over the past decade. Fabulous show, great crowd both nights - some came from as far away as Montreal and Toronto just to see him, another delicious buffet served up by The Cove - Memphis BBQ ribs (yum!) and, as always - good service, a warm, friendly atmosphere and lots of dancing!


“The Cove is paradise. Double paradise when David Rotundo is performing!”
Pat Lacroix, Ottawa (multiple show attendee)

“Even after so many years of enjoying BOTR at The Cove at the core it is still always like the first time. We enjoy it so very much. No need to travel anywhere else to hear great Blues. It’s here! 10 out of 10 for everything. 10++ for food and service.” Andre Pelletier, Lombardy ON (multiple show attendee)

“Hard to improve on perfection! 10 out of 10 for everything, 10.5 for the food.”
Robert Wallace, Newtonrobinson, ON (First-timer)

“We never thought of ourselves as Blues fans but we are now!. 10 out of 10 for everything.”
Wally Corbin, Brighton ON (Second visit)

“Thank you for keeping the Blues alive in ‘Bluesport' Ontario”
Celyne Gaspe, Kanehsatake QC (Comes with a group of friends every year and they stay over both nights to see both David Rotundo shows!)

“Rotundo rocks the Blues! Can’t wait for next season!”
Marg & Dick Christy, Elgin ON (They’ve attended almost EVERY BOTR show over the past 10 years!)
$500 was raised each night for Westport In Bloom and the Rideau District Museum bringing the total raised this season for Westport charities to over $4,500 - over $55K since the Series began.
