Hogtown Allstars Review

THE HOGTOWN ALLSTARS – 6 of Canada’s best Blues artists – Chuck Jackson, Michael Fonfara, Pat Carey, Gary Kendall & Mike Fitzpatrick from Downchild plus guitarist Teddy Leonard – returned to BLUES ON THE RIDEAU @ THE COVE INN, Westport this past weekend Feb 20 & 21 and put on another pair of great performances. It was the third year in a row this band has played the Series and anyone who has attended their shows knows why. Entertaining, fun and superb musicianship.

Collectively The Hogtown Allstars represent almost 300 years of Blues playing experience and it shows. Led by singer/harmonica player/comedian Chuck Jackson these guys entertain right from the first song mixing it up with their renditions of old Blues classics along with their own original songs. The crowd gave them a standing ovation and demanded an encore both nights.

The Cove Inn once again served up a delicious buffet that received 9’s and 10’s out of 10 on the Comment Cards and many compliments.

$400 was raised each night for the Rideau Vista and St. Edward’s Elementary Schools bringing this year’s BOTR fundraising total to over $2,700 for local Westport charities.

Comments from Comment Cards: (note the frequent use of the word “awesome!”):

“AWESOME PARTAY! 10 out of 10 for everything”
Renee Capello, Perth (4th visit to BOTR)

“Awesome evening. Thank you. 10 out of 10 for everything, 15 for the band! :-)”
Louise Ellison, Ottawa (First timer)

“Love the food, venue, service, sound, band and people here. Please keep it up! 10 out of 10 for everything – 12+ for the band!”
Suzanne Mahoney, Ottawa (Has attended over 10 shows over the years)
