Lives music is slowly returning to the GTA.  Can we all say "Amen"

The Downchild Blues Band has had their 2020 tour dates rescheduled to the spring of 2021.  While waiting for theatres and festivals to reopen three band members, Chuck Jackson vocals/harmonica, Mike Fitzpatrick drums and Gary Kendall bass/vocals have teamed up with ex-Fathead guitarist/vocalist, Teddy Leonard and moved into a weekly residency at the city's newest live music venue, Bar Twelve16.  Instead of presenting limited capacity indoor events the club has chosen to launch themselves into the live music scene by using their large patio.  The stage is set up outside the patio fence to allow for the required distance between musicians and audience.  It`s been obvious that the demand for live music has not been stifled by the pandemic lock down.  The Sunday afternoon blues sessions have been filled to capacity since Aug.13th.  Tables are placed far enough apart to meet social distancing requirements and there`s no dance floor.


On Sun.Oct.4th The Toronto Blues Society will present their annual Talent Search event at Bar Twelve16.  Chuck Jackson & The C-Notes will be performing at a private party that day.

Jim Casson is filling in on drums  for Mike Fitzpatrick until November

Information for Sunday Blues in October at Bar Twelve16 coming soon………………….
