Calgary Bluesfest (2007)
"Bluesabillysurf" - Eddy B (Blueheart)
The Du-Rite Aces play a roots roundup of blues - jump, chicago, 40's texas, bit of western swing feel, rockabilly edge and 100 % upright bass throughout - the grease that keeps all of those styles swinging.
The Calgary-based band features guitarist and bandleader Greg "Junior" Demchuk, a founding member of The Twisters and past member of The Rockiní Highliners (both Juno-nominated groups).
In a career spanning two decades, this retro-drenched guitarist has helped to define---along with Junior Watson, Kid Ramos, and Hollywood Fats---the distinctive style of the modern West Coast sound. Addint to the explosive energy and fun lovin' excitement are Edmonton piano-man Graham Guest, drummer Andy Graffiti, and Pete Turland on upright bass.
