Coastal Jazz presents ”Cellar Jazz Series”
Putting their own, unique spin on time tested, audience favorites, these groups take the dueling piano concept to a whole new level. They love the simple, classic sound of two pianos going at it and dish out plenty of it to fans of piano greats such as Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Billy Joel and Elton John! All of this combined with great singing, a massive request repertoire (just try to stump them) and a heavy dose of audience interaction plus two fearless performers, willing to try just about ANYTHING in the name of fun, make these shows a guaranteed great time.

The MUD BAY BLUES BAND has been electrifying audiences with their innovative and original Blues & Roots music for more than 37 years now and these world-renowned Soul Survivors show no signs of slowing down anytime soon--quite the contrary!
In 2014, they went back home to White Rock B.C., the place where their musical journey began way back in 1978, with the aim of recording an album of original songs that would represent the band at their very best. And that's just what they did.
Recorded at Blue Frog Studios with acclaimed producer Victor Guidera at the helm, the new album, COLEBROOK ROAD, captures the band in high definition, high intensity and high gear. It's their finest recorded work to date and they're thrilled to be holding their official album release event at the place where they laid it all down, at Blue Frog Studios.
Friday, June 26th will be a night to remember as the Mud Bay Blues Band debuts another chapter to the story of 'The Band That Won't Go Away'!
