Blue Rhino Band
Calgary Bluesfest (2006, 2007)
"Outrageous Rhythm & Blues"
With two front men, four singers, a fat horn section and a funky bottom end, Blue RHINO reinterprets R & B, soul, and funk standards with only one rule... if it isn't funů they don't play it!
The 7-piece Blue Rhino band has performed at clubs, festivals, and special events in southern Alberta. Their freshly interpreted classic R&B covers along with upbeat original music inspires audiences to "get up and boogie" or just kick back and enjoy.
Andre Patterson (vocals, trombone), Russ Emerson (guitar, guitar synthesizer, vocals), and Bruce Lovstrom (drums) are founding members, with the addition of John Leimseider (piano, organ, clavinet), Rod Hunter (bass) and Peter Fischer (saxophone), Rob Young (vocals, drums).
