Harpdog is a great bluesman, he is in total command onstage and enjoys every minute of it! He plays the blues naturally and without gimmicks or pretension - combine that with his trade and you won’t find better blues in Canada.
Harpdog Brown has earned a solid 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. They have a unique sound that takes Chicago Blues down to New Orleans. It’s piano driven and often features slide trombone, sax and clarinet. 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!
