Event Description

Bill Johnson Blues Band
JUNO Nominee, Maple Blues Nominee (4X), and well respected bluesman BILL JOHNSON brings his quartet to The Copper Owl in Victoria. Listening to Bill play and sing the blues is like taking a master class in how its done.

A review from Goldmine Magazine on Bill's latest album:

"Canadian Bill Johnson has a great voice. Its what holds his self-released fourth album Cold Outside togetherthat, and his compositional prowess. The dude knows how to string some sentences into a cohesive whole, make em rhyme, and have em come out profound. To hear him sing his 11 originals while playing guitar and leading his keyboards/bass/drums band is to feel what hes feeling. His is a communicable enthusiasm, be it the Nine Dollar Bill hes trying to pass or what Makes A Fella Nervous totin around his Angry Guitar with My Natural Ability, Free From My Trouble.Highlights all, Johnson rolls with a savvy flair.

He has released four albums, and has just released a 5-song EP, Weapons Of Emotion
