  • March 22, 2024
    8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

For years the city has had a modest but reverent blues scene which has fostered a blues sound a little more traditional and Jimmy and the Sleepers are disciples of the sound and dedicated to it’s roots. Their sound is both modern and edgy yet rooted in the early blues pioneers creating a moving experience that has been filling dance floors in blues clubs and festivals for decades. After 20 years together and three albums to their credit, they are more ready than ever to burn out of their frozen Canadian home and showcase their sound to the world!

“This is a hard-hitting tight ensemble that prides itself on dispensing a sound that combines muscular grooves and economical, yet powerful solos with intense interplay.”
-Peter North, Edmonton Journal

“A true blast of Chicago blues that’ll impress anyone, from the Windy City to winter Winnipeg and all points around.”
-Jeremy Loome, Edmonton Sun

“Jimmy Guiboche plays with the fear of God in his eyes and the blessings of the Devil in his fingertips!”
-The Gateway

“Jimmy Guiboche is way too cool, great guy and player!”
-James Harman

“Their original songs bring in a remarkable inventiveness.”
-Toronto Blues Society
