Back by popular demand, the Ghost Town Blues Band will be performing at the KBD Hall in Chatham on Friday.
“The response from their performances headlining the Shrewsbury Ribs & Blues Festival and their subsequent show in Chatham a few years ago was overwhelming” said Bob Christmas (president of Canada South Blues Society) adding that, “We knew this is one band that we had to have back.”
GTBB’s new album Shine debuted atop the Billboard Blues Chart. The band recently headlined the blues stage at The Montreal Jazz Festival and is fresh off of their European debut at the Grolsch Blues Festival in Germany.
This is not your grandpa’s blues band, as their live show features “second-line horn entrance,” cigar-box guitars and electric push brooms to Allman Brothers-style jams and even a hip-hop trombone player.
The Memphis-based band has just been nominated for the “BB King International Blues Act of the Year” at the upcoming Maple Blues Awards along with receiving and being nominated for many regional and national accolades.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $25 for blues society members and $30 for the general public.
They are available at HIP Entertainment (Chatham), Westside Performance (Blenheim), Kakoon Spa (Ridgetown) or call Bob Christmas at 519-676-9150.
