The Poor Boy Rodger Band 

The Poor Boy Rodger Blues Band is one of West-mans hardest working bands, while primarily a blues band they often throw in enough of everything to keep most crowds entertained. The band has got a Colin James, Eric Clapton rockin' drive to the songs they play and  perform  with the passion of players that love what they're doing.
  Formed in 2002 as an acoustic duo, playing mostly delta style blues it has since grown into a hard driving Chicago style blues band with the addition of the rhythm section from Brandon's rock band 18 Rabbit.  In the past the Poor Boy Rodger Band has been busy warming up for bigger acts such as The Northern Pikes, Big Dave McLean, Jack Semple, Billy Joe Green, Tracy K, Brent Parkin and Kristi Johnston and Poor Boy also played for the Pan Am Games when held in Manitoba. The band is made up of Keith "Poor Boy" Rodger on lead and slide guitar, harmonica and vocals - Mark "Professor Peewee" Schroeder on lead and slide guitar and vocals - Ryan "Fuzzy" Felstead on bass - Darren "Dirt" Cherewayko on drums.

the girl next door

Shelley Lynne & Richie Hardinge.  This is a duo playing some of the great songs they grew up listening to. Shelley Lynne sings a tribute to Billy Holiday, Patsy Cline, Peggy Lee, Mae West, Irma Thomas, Memphis Minnie, Bessie Smith, Ruth Brown and many more beautiful songbirds. In this world of trance and music that doesn't have the right to call itself music Shelley Lynne is bringing back the greatest songs of all time. Her only regret is that her grandparents are no longer with us. They'd all agree that It's been too long!
