This show is a testament to what happens when three people who are very passionate about life and music come together and play. They revisit songs from the albums Mother Tongue Blues, recently nominated at the Maple Blues Awards for Album of the Year, Come Alive, 2011 Best Album of the Year at the Quebec Lys Blues, as well as some of their favorites from other artists.
With a career span of over 26 years and eight records, Canadian Female Vocalist of the Year, Angel Forrest sure knows how to rock the house with last spring’s latest release, "LIVE" LOVE at the Palace.
Angel won the 2014 and 2015 Best Female Artist of the Year in Toronto at the Maple Blues Awards as well as Songwriter of the Year in 2015. Among other notorious openings, she shared the stage with The Beach Boys, Burton Cummings, Shawn Phillips and blues greats Thornetta Davis and Larry McCray not to mention the legendary Eric Burdon and Lou Gramm of Foreigner.
Angel is joined by award winning guitarists, Paul Deslauriers and Denis Coulombe.
This show is proudly co-presented with the White Rock Blues Society.

Rodney Dranfield (President WRBS)
Its had been five years since our first local IBC Event was held at the Rhumba Room to identify a solo/duo act to a attend the annual International Blues Challenge put on by the Blues Foundation in Memphis.
That was 2010 and Vancouver duo Mud Dog was selected. The following year it was held at the West Beach Bar and Grill and solo artist David "Boxcar" Gates went to Memphis. In 2012 we held the event at the Princeton Pub downtown and Pappa Dawg's Band was selected. Last year the event was held on Granville Street at the FANCLUB. Brandon "Yukon Slim" Isaak was chosen from the solo/duo category and Arsen Shomakhov Band from the band category.
We had 10 acts performing 25 minute sets with judges using the same criteria employed in Memphis
to determine who will be sponsored to attend the January 2015 event on the famed Beale Street.
The two acts that went to Memphis are:
Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues Band
Dalannah Gail Bowen
On Sunday July 26 2015 we will be conducting another IBC Event at the Semiahmoo First Nation's Spirit Stage to determine the solo/duo act and band to represent the WRBS in Memphis in January 2016.
