David Gogo, one of Canada’s hardest-working blues-rock guitarists, is appearing in Victoria on Saturday, April 14.

Gogo has garnered three Juno nominations, the Saturday Night Blues’ Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada, WCMA Musician of the Year, and has twice been named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year.

Over the years, Gogo has performed with blues and rock legends B.B. King, Bo Diddley, George Thorogood, ZZ Top, and numerous others – most recently touring with Johnny Winter on Canada’s west coast.

Gogo is touring in support of his latest release Soul Bender.

The disc features new tracks, some Gogo originals and a few covers that run the gamut of sources and styles infused with a Gogo twist. Soul Bender is a sizzling, hard-rocking blues album that is filled with heavy grooves, grit and emotion.

Tickets are $23.50 or $25 at the door, they are available at hightideconcerts.net, Lyle’s Place, 770 Yates St., Ditch Records, 784 Fort St., and the McPherson Box Office. Go to davidgogo.com for more information.
