Blues on the Rideau Presents – Fathead

FatheadThe great Toronto band – 2X Juno Award and multiple Maple Blues Award winners – FATHEAD returned to BOTR @ The Cove last Friday – the 4th visit since the Series started – and once again showed why they are one of the crowd favourites.  This time around they were missing their fabulous lead singer JOHN MAYS who unfortunately is going through some tough medical issues right now but the lovely and talented MISS ROBIN BANK$ stepped in as a Special Guest and did a superb job. It was a full house and a happy one – the dance floor remained packed all night (as always at BOTR @ The Cove) and both FATHEAD and ROBIN sold a bunch of their new CD’s – “Fatter Than Ever” and “Modern Classics”.
The Cove’s sumptuous buffet included roasted pork loin with applesauce, a spicy pineapple chicken, butternut squash ravioli, roasted potatoes, mixed veggies and salads. And the chocolate torte square w. raspberry sauce dessert was to die for!
Westport Food Bank$600 was raised – plus some food and additional cash donations – for the WESTPORT FOOD BANK. The audience also stepped up big time with $300 in contributions to the HELP JOHN MAYS OUT Fund with everyone sending their love and best wishes to John for a full and speedy recovery. (If you want to help John out during this tough time you can do so on the FATHEAD
