NEW CD : 20 Years Of Bop & Blues

  Celebrating “20 Years of Bop & Blues”!

March 14th, 2012 – In celebration of 20 years of performing, writing and producing blues music, Mike Goudreau & The Boppin’ Blues Band are proud to present their anniversary album, 20 Years of Bop & Blues. The record offers 14 new original songs ranging from swinging to funky, from New Orleans to blues-rock, with some southern soul & gospel thrown in for good measure!

This latest Boppin’ offering features Mike Goudreau on vocals and guitar, Jonathan Boudreau on bass, Jean-François Bégin on drums, David Élias on tenor and baritone sax, Serge Arsenault

on trombone, and Maxime St-Pierre on trumpet. The BBB is joined by guests Lorrie Goodman on B3 organ, and special guest Pierre Lacocque, of the Chicago band Mississippi Heat, on harmonica.

All songs are by Mike Goudreau, including the help of co-composers Lorrie Goodman, Jonathan Boudreau and Jean-François Bégin. Also participating to the French lyrics to one song is long-time BBB friend Michel Aubin.

20 years of BBB…

1992 Mike Goudreau and drummer Richard Bergeron found the Boppin Blues Band as a result of regular Monday night gigs at the Café du Palais in Sherbrooke.

With a demo recorded in the family basement, BBB performs at 3 “Labatt Blues” festivals in Trois-Rivières, Sherbrooke and Rivière-du-Loup.

1994 Release of the 1st BBB album, Sold Out. Real Blues Magazine calls them “one of Canada's most talented new blues bands”.

1995 First appearance at Montreal International Jazz Festival (followed by 7 more to date).

1996 Release of the 2nd album, I Dig My Job. More accolades, and Real Blues Magazine names them ''Best Canadian Blues Band''.

1997 BBB backs up the “Prime Minister of Blues” Dutch Mason for a series of ten sold out concerts across Quebec.

1999 Release of the 3rd album, Happy Go Lucky, nominated for a Maple Blues Award.

2000 BBB receives a grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec for research and creation, and produces the 4th CD, Nous avions rendez-vous, with 12 original blues songs in French. This album also leads to a gig at “Les Francofolies”, and a live concert recording from “La Maison de la culture de Frontenac” in Montreal by Radio Canada’s Silence, on jazz, broadcast coast to coast.

2006 BBB featured on the cover of BCR, a blues magazine from France.

    Secondly, knowledge of spelling and punctuation https://jetwriting.com/research-paper-for-sale/ will not be superfluous. Because mistakes and incorrectly placed punctuation marks seriously spoil the impression of the text. In our age of computer technology and the Internet, there are many programs for checking spelling, but they are not always tough with literary text, and this does not exempt them from learning the rules of their native language. Therefore, it will not be superfluous to refresh your knowledge of the Russian language.
