Event Description

The Powder Blues recorded their first album ‘Uncut’ in 1979 on Blue Wave Records. Because of rampant sales the album was re-released on RCA Records and went platinum, selling well over 200,000 units. As momentum built, the band started touring not only around BC but into Alberta and beyond. In 1983, the band travelled to Europe and played the prestigious Montreux Jazz and North Sea Festivals. ‘Live at Montreux’ was released on disc and the following year ‘Powder Blues Live At Montreux’ aired on CBC TV. By 1985, five albums had been released not only in Canada but also in the USA, England, Australia and New Zealand.

In 1986 the band scooped a coveted WC Handy Award in Memphis for ‘Best Foreign Band’. Tours of the Soviet Union and constant touring in North America kept the band extremely busy well into the 90s. They're still going strong and sounding better than ever!

Vancouver Coop Radio will be celebrating its 47th anniversary this month and are happy to do that with Powder Blues, who are celebrating their 44th anniversary. Grab a ticket and join us at The Rio for a bit of ‘Doing It Right On The Wrong Side Of Town’
