The One-Man Blues Rock Band!
Steve Hill —“the most spectacular one-man band on the planet”—is touring in support of his critically acclaimed Steve Hill: The One-Man Blues Rock Band. Released May 11, the album immediately shot to number one on the blues charts on Itunes Canada. An overnight sensation 20-plus years in the making, he is now being recognized as an ambitious and raucous force on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene, picking up an impressive load of hardware, including a JUNO for Blues Album of the Year, and multi Maple Blues awards for Electric Act of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, Recording/Producer of the Year and Entertainer of the Year.
When it comes to one-man bands, this guitarist and singer-songwriter extraordinaire knows no limits. As chrishighreviews.com writes, “The man not only sings with such a raw, barbed vocal style underpinned by a deliciously handled guitar, he also comes loaded with two kick drums, a hi-hat cymbal—played by virtue of the stick attached ingeniously to the machine head of his guitar—and, on occasion, a harmonica.”
Juno nominees The Blackburn Brothers & their father, Bobby Dean, bring you a night that honours the true beginnings of Rock ‘n’ Roll; about those who were raised in the Black Community, lived through the Civil Rights Movement, who made it on the Race Charts and later the Pop Charts. From Fats Domino, Jessie Hill, Huey Smith and the Clowns, Big Joe Turner, and the rocking sounds of Little Richard, and Sam Cooke, this is one show you don’t want to miss.

As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”
Clearly the critics agree: “5 STARS – the funniest man on earth” – Winnipeg Free Press; “4 STARS – the crowd howled” – Victoria Times Colonist; “still the funniest man in Canada” – Toronto Sun; “Edwards reigns as the King of Canadian comedy” – Charlottetown Guardian; “Derek Edwards is hysterical” – Calgary Sun; “Edwards takes stand-up to next stage” – Georgia Straight; “the epitome of timing & storytelling” – Halifax Chronicle Herald; “the comedian’s comedian” – London Free Press.

While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the students spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “d-i-n-g” of the bell that signals a spelling error.
