Event Description

Carlos del Junco and the Blues Mongrels Tuesday, March 19th Doors 6pm Show 8pm Eight time Maple Blues winner, BIG REED RECORDS recording artist Carlos del Junco and his Blues Mongrels are returning to The Dream Cafe for the first time in 6 years (apologies to those who had bought tickets to last year's last minute cancelled show due to a medical emergency). As one magazine reviewer said: “…if you think what he can do in the studio is jaw dropping, you have to see him live to get the gist of his uncanny ability.” (Jeffrey Morgan, Creem Magazine). A case in point, he opened for Ray Charles in 2003 at the Sony Centre and sold out of his 150 CDs in the 20 minute break before Ray came on! Carlos del Junco has toured many parts of the globe and is considered one of the world’s greatest living harmonica players. He’s released 7 solo (band) CDs and 3 duo collaborative CDs. A dynamic live performer, he’s played virtually every major blues, folk and jazz festival in Canada. Also, in addition to two Juno nominations, del Junco won two gold medals for both blues and jazz categories at the Hohner World Harmonica Championships in 1993 in Germany. Get ready to trash all you thought about the harmonica, Carlos del Junco and The Blues Mongrels deliver a no holds barred display of melodic fun and virtuosity. "..a model of focus and urgency...a true virtuoso.." Brad Wheeler, The Globe And Mail Tickets: Premium $25 Wings $15
