Judd Stachoski

judd

A beer slinger and barroom singer, Judd has been a fixture in the Regina music scene longer than a well-aged scotch. His last full length record, Manhattan Haze, explored the darkened corners of the blues; peering in ghost-crowded closets and howling at an always-full moon. The other side of the tracks is where all the fun happens. Anyhow, see you at the show.

School of Rock Regina House Band

sor

In its fourth year of operation, School of Rock (SOR) Regina is a music school franchise that teaches that the stage is the ultimate teacher. The House Band is comprised of the best of the SOR Regina students, average age 14-17. Most of the House band has been together for the entire four years, growing each year into accomplished young musicians and singers.

The band includes Cohen Jones on lead guitar. Cohen is an SOR All Star, of which less than 1% of SOR’s 40,000 students across North America make the grade. The House Band also includes talented musicians Jaxon Hicks (guitar), Harrison Mooney (bass), Marshall Brooks (drums), Neely Graham (keys) and singers Jade Russell, Jesse Gibson and Kennedy Pisula.

The band has performed at numerous events including Shake the Lake in front of Tom Cochrane and Burton Cummings, and makes its Mid-Winter Festival Main Stage debut with a smokin’ opening set.
They might be young, but they’ll leave the audience with no doubt that these talented young musicians can play the blues!


Chris Ghidoni Band

Some of the band’s more memorable performances include opening act in 2017 for Honey Moon Suite and later that year for Michelle Wright and Lover Boy. Then in 2018 opening act for the Perpetrators.

BMW ft. Big Dave McLean and Tim Williams

bmw

BMW (Belzner, McLean & Williams) came into being at the Edmonton International Blues Festival when longtime pal Big Dave McLean joined Tim Williams and Kevin Belzner onstage.The mix was undeniably cool. Kevin Belzner (stand-up cocktail drums), Big Dave McLean (guitars/vocals/harmonica), and Tim Williams (guitars/mandolin/vocals) create a very cool mix of classic and obscure blues tunes by others plus a hefty number of originals which can sit comfortably alongside of them – Delta, Hill Country, Chicago, West Coast, Hokum and more.
