Harpdog Brown & The Uptown Blues Band
Canada’s Classic Blues icon, Harpdog Brown is back on the road again bringing his new Uptown Blues Band to Osborne Bay Pub. See Harpdog Brown like you’ve never seen or heard before!
Harpdog Brown has grown a reputation as a real-deal purveyor of classic electric blues. Think of the old Chess Records and Sun Records of the late 40’s and early 50’s. These days he’s been touring more and more as Harpdog Brown & the Uptown Blues Band – a vintage New Orleans Blues sound featuring, piano, clarinet, sax, upright-bass and drums.
Still a vintage vibe, just a different vintage! This music will move you! They perform mostly originals yet they often include great songs of the masters from that era. Think Louis Jordan, Satchmo, Sonny Boy Williamson, Wynonie Harris, even Duke Ellington. Audiences are raving about this new show! He’s been called a Blues Evangelist, and that’s a very fitting moniker. “I speak the blues like it’s the truth, and it is”, he was recently quoted. “I do feel like I’m a servant of the people. A missionary if you will. Music can heal people if they pay attention to the messages in these songs.” He delivers those messages using the vintage sound whether it be with his lowdown classic blues band the Travelin’ Blues Show or with his new Uptown Blues Band. Harpdog says “Blues has a healing power. It’s a beautiful celebration of our perfectly flawed lives. We help people forget about their issues of the moment and then, they might just realize that we all have our issues, and that’s OK.”
Harpdog Brown is a gifted vocalist and an imaginative harmonica player. Piano man Dave Webb has been working with Harpdog over the years and they share an intuition that only comes with many hours and miles shared on and off stage. Local sax extraordinaire, Colin Perry with be joining the band with both Baritone and Alto sax. Rounding out the band is one of the best drummers in the land, Bob Grant!
Harpdog has won three consecutive Maple Blues Awards for Harmonica Player of the Year (2014/2015/2016), the Fraser Valley Music Award, has three consecutive Western Canadian Music Awards Nominations, a Juno Nomination and is the only Canadian to win the coveted Muddy Award. In 2016, he was nominated for 3 Maple Blues Awards (Harmonica Player, Male Vocalist and Album of the Year) for his latest release Travelin’ With The Blues. Travelin’ With The Blues released in 2016 is still sitting in the top roots and blues charts and follows his Top 20 charting 2014 release What It Is (Roots Music Report International Blues Albums). Get off the couch and some see some seriously vintage blues that’s lots of fun!

The Dylan Stone Band
Dylan Stone – From ‘The Unfaithful Servants’, ‘The Neil Young Show’, ‘The Great Divide’.
Dylan’s new record, Everything I’ve Known, was recorded with Juno and Western Canadian Music Award winning producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Yukon Blonde, New Pornographers), and co-produced with Rolla Olak. His sleight of hand is clear in the depth of sound and psychedelic overtones on this record. Stone has toured relentlessly across Canada and the west coast and in this record you can hear the call of the road. He sings of broken hearts and restless spirits, of star crossed lovers tearing across deserted black top. Influences are clear, think Tom Petty, early Ryan Adams and Wilco, yet Stone has his own take on the heartland rock of his heroes, rightfully earning a spot in any dog-eared record collection. The four song EP represents an ever-evolving sound in Dylan’s songwriting, showcasing where his muse currently lives. The songs are catchy, expansive, and intimate.
Dylan Stone is an honest musician who writes, plays and sings from the heart. He is a restless songwriter who is constantly pursuing new sounds and collaborations. He was raised by an old record collection, and his guitar that has put food on his table for his entire adult life. An interesting and storied career has led him to share the stage with one of his musical icons Alejandro Escovedo, open for Keith Urban at BC’s largest country music festival, play onstage with Robert Randolf & The Family Band, and perform his songs for Lou Reed in Nashville, Tennessee. A troubadour in the truest sense, he has lived and toured across Canada and toured the West Coast extensively. He is most at home on stage with guitar in hand.
His music lives in a variety of projects and collaborations. Stone’s last release Dylan Stone & The Unfaithful Servants was recorded with Canada’s foremost acoustic musicians; Richard Moody, Oliver Swain, and Jesse Cobb. His latest EP, Everything I’ve Known, was recorded with The Dylan Stone Band who produce an honest and effusive breed of Canadian rock and roll. His electric music is energized and passionate and carries the spirit of his influences on its sleeve. Dylan is not ashamed to show his musical roots. When performing with his electric outfit the music created draws comparisons to Wilco, Neil Young, and The Band.
Whether performing solo or in any number of collaborations, he is constantly in pursuit of the muse, chasing the stories, people and places that inspire the song.
