Carlos del Junco and The Blues Mongrels

Hey there Pearls!

Get ready to trash all you thought that you knew about the harmonica because the Pearl Company is proud to present... Carlos del Junco and The Blues Mongrels on Saturday March 29, 2014! Bringing a beautiful blend of classic styles of music it's truly an event you don't want to miss! Here is a bit about who they are:

Carlos is one of those players whose music is so advanced that when it comes to awards, it's either retire that category or rephrase the question to  "Best Harmonica Player Not Named Carlos". As the Eight time Harmonica Player of The Year at the Maple Leaf Blues Awards, it's clear that he has some MAJOR skill! Simultaneously Sophisticated and raw, the band's playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz. The emphasis is on blues, but they are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, jazz swing, Latin, hip-hop, or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock. The Blues Mongrels are: bassist Henry Heillig (founded the nine piece Latin band Manteca), and Guitarist Eric St. Laurent. The Blues Mongrels delivers a no-holds-barred display of fun and melodic virtuosity. "...a model of focus and urgency... a true virtuoso... Brad Wheeler - The Globe and Mail.

 If you have ever made any kind of music with a harmonica, and yes I do include when you were a kid and goofed around with one, than you won't want to miss what this group can do!! It is a great way to spend an evening , with or without the kids (although you may end up wishing that you had left them when they suddenly decide they want to play the harmonica as well..). Get your tickets now so that you won't miss out on such a memorable night! Tickets will be sold for $20 in advance and $25 at the front door! The doors open at around 7:30 pm and the show should be starting at around 8:00 pm.
