THE PAUL DESLAURIERS BAND
December 9, 2017
Tickets are $20
The trio is composed of virtuoso guitarist and singer Paul
DesLauriers; surrounded by the no less prodigious Greg
Morency on bass, and Sam Harrisson on drums. The group won
4 Maple Blues Awards on January 23, 2017, in the Artist, Electric
Group, Bassist and Drummer of the Year categories, making it
the most rewarded group at this prestigious national event.
Two years after the release of his first album, Paul DesLauriers
Band recidivates with Relentless, an even more personal and
accomplished album, the result of a perfect symbiosis between
the baggage and the influences of each member. Launched on
June 3, 2016, the album was acclaimed by international critics
and rose to second place on the Radio Roots Music Report in
Canada in July and 10th in the United States. The album
occupied the 17th position on the International Blues Airplay
Chart of Australia in August 2016.
Si vous les avez manqués la première fois/ If you missed
them the first time- they were amazing!
The rave reviews we got were incredible, but
unfortunately the size of the audience was not huge for
their show in early September. Every person at that
concert had demanded that we get Paul Deslauriers
back- because they want to bring all their friends.
Something I have never witnessed before: even Bernard
(the sound guy)was out on the dance floor.
