The Western Development Museum in North Battleford is ready to stage its annual Blues & Blues night, Saturday, April 16.
Dance the night away at Blues & Brews to the sounds of The Blue Mules.
The Blue Mules are a three-piece blues and funk band, whose debut CD The Blues Ain't That Bad, can be heard on radio throughout Western Canada.
Trent Schmiedge, singer and guitarist for The Blue Mules, says if people are into Eric Clapton, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Blues Ain't That Bad should make them as happy as it makes him.
"I've always wanted to put out a record like this," he said. "I've played in rock bands and country bands, (but) my heart has always been in this style of music. We're a very R&B band. That is the music I like."
The album has resulted in significant airplay including CBC Saturday Night Blues with Holger Petersen. With more than 100 radio stations in 10 countries giving airtime to each song on the release, it's no surprise The Blue Mules are heard on such radio staples as Confessing the Blues with Cleve Baker and At the Crossroads with Brant Zwicker. They have played venues throughout western Canada and have even opened for the legendary David Wilcox.
Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased online at wdm.ca/nb/events/blues.htm or call 306-445-8033.
The show starts at 8 p.m.
